| Timothy Bates replied to my Gumtree ad for a fridge. Timothy Bates contacted me via my Gumtree ad for a fridge, asking for my email address, banking details, Pay pal email, and an address where his courier could pick up the goods. As soon as I got the initial email I suspected a scam . When I saw the name Timothy Bates, I nearly wet myself laughing. When I got the news he was unable to inspect the goods because he was working at sea on an oil rig but would send a courier to pick up the goods for delivery to his new apartment( no address specified) I decided to look for similar scams online. Found heaps of them , nearly word for word . Good Try Tim but no cigar! |
