I just listed 2 items to sell via Gumtree.
1 is a Sony bridge camera and the other a Sky+ box.
Within 1 hour I had received 2 clearly scam emails and some crap about having a paypal account and how they would just throw in an extra £20 or £40 for postage e.c.t.
This is the rubbish they replied with
1) Hi, the price is very reasonable i will add additional £20 for delivery charges via royal mail 1st class, hope you use Pay Pal as am doing at the moment! send me a Pay Pal invoice to:
or you let me have your name and Pay Pal registered email address to enable me remit the money now.
Take note of this email address "[email protected]
2) "Thanks for your response and i appreciate the fact that you are
willing to sell the item to me but right i may not come over because
of my job, am still at work right now and get home late night 11pm
please bear with me, i work at airport at Newcastle and I have made
promise about this item. I acknowledge your asking price for the item
and i ready to make quick payment to you through pay-pal right now
which will include an add additional fee of £40 postage fee via
royal-mail registered. Kindly send me a pay pal payment request to
with total fee and in-case you don't have a
pay-pal account you can just quickly set-up one. so that i can
complete payment this evening and you can have the item posted
My phone number to call me +***********!"
Take note of this email address to: [email protected]
The grammar in this 1 is outstanding.
So please take not of these 2 email addresses and mobile number
I hate these total scum bags..
Hope this helps somebody avoid these muppets.
Not sure why the emails are not showing or mobile number but I will try and add them.
THESE HAVE BEEN REMOVED PLEASE DONT POST THEM AGAIN
