| Buyer of trailer on Gumtree only could use Paypal Ann Alcatraz responded to my trailer ad on Gumtree but asked me to reply outside of Gumtree messaging service via email. Via email she said she is happy with the condition and price of my trailer but can only pay via PayPal and that she herself wouldn't be picking up the trailer, an agent would on her behalf. She was trying to buy a trailer in advance for a holiday here in Australia. I asked for more detail ie, why she couldn't buy herself and with cash, where she worked and her Mobile number. The details she offered were strange so I google searched them and they came up on Scamalot and Scamdex as a similar match, ie Chef for US coast guard, couldn't provide a number etc. |
