    Gumtree scams

    Listed a phone on gumtree, the amount of scam emails I have saying they work abroad and it's for there dads, sisters, aunties , cousins , friend is a joke.

    So how does it work ? Do they actually send the money and then I am expected to send the item to Nigeria and they what ? Reverse the payment or something?

    Are people really this stupid?

    Fake Paypal payment notification email I assume, or they claim it wasn't received and Paypal side with them, refunding them

    I was lookin for an apartment on gumtree n same issue askin me to send them money though to confirm NO CHANCE anybody who falls for it really needs to learn a few things bout online scams

    Yeah I've had similar with Gumtree. Infact the same guy tried it about 3 times lol!! What scares me is that there must be people out there who think it is genuine and fall for it.

    I was offered a million pounds if I would hold 10 million in my bank account for them....oh it was soooo tempting

    So you don't know how it works, yet you call people stupid?



    Dont know how it works because I ain't a scammer, going by responses there is more than one way they could scam you.

    People who fall for it are stupid is what I ment, if you didn't know what I ment then what are you ?
