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.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
