Clayton, Victoria, Australia
| Gumtree Sale via paypal |
Received a text of interest and then further emails back and forth until it came to payment. The alias emailed to say they had payed and I had two "confirmation" emails come through, in my spam folder, from "paypal" describing that they were holding the payment from me until I had posted my item. I checked my Paypal account and the invoivce I sent to the alias had it's status as 'unpaid'. To clarify that this was a scam I copied the email address from the confirmation email posing as paypal and a report from this site popped up.
This is the email I pasted into google which then lead me to this helpful site: email@example.com

Exactly same as the previous two reports. Asking for luxury jewellery I was selling on Gumtree. Sent a message and ask me to send him an email. Later he sent an email asking a few questions and said that he’s going to buy it for someone special in Beijing, China. Also request to pay via paypal and told me he will pay me $90 for delivery.
I answered the questions but feel a bit weird so I asked him to add me on whatsapp so I can send him videos of the ring, also I asked for the delivery address so I can calculate the postage fee instead of what he said $90.
Then he replied asking me to send him pics via email and he wanted to do the payment straight away. I asked for the address again, the only thing he gave me was ‘Beijing, China’. Well, it is definitely a scam so I searched his name on google and the scam reports appeared. Thanks for sharing your experience.
