Is this a scam (suspect so)

Selling an item on gumtree, seller haggled me down in price then came back with this:
well i will be making adequate arrangement to
purchase this item ,am a cabin member of British airways as am always
on the move..
presently am not in the UK,and will be needing it for my personal use
, i will be making payment via online
bank transfer(bayclays bank plc).
so pls get back to me with your
sort code
bank name
acct number
and name .
as soon as possible so i could make payment .....
below is my address
pls get back to me asap........



Yeh - be sure always use payapl.

Iv just got dabbled on Gumtree, thankfully I used paypal and have put in a claim.

def scam avoid

Sounds dodgy to me...Would get them to do do it as a paypal gift instead.

Sounds dodgy to me

hello kind sir I am currently out of the country and in Nigeria where I am concluding some business with my partners, please send me some ugandan dollars to the designated account

Scamtree = Scam


Scam completely

Seems to be worded like a Nigerian scam doesn't it. Surely a BT can be done with a sort code and account number. Seems alittle too much information needed.

Think I'd be wary.

If you give them just a sort and account number can they set up anything with that alone?


it will be recalled, it will be paid using a hacked bank account

Tell them you will only accept payment by western union or moneygram

it's a scam, british airways workers are never out of the country!
