I have received an e-mail saying that they wanted to pay full asking price for a ring i had advertised on Gumtree but due to recovering from heart surgery and hearing loss was unable to collect in person. They said they would pay by PayPal and send a courier for the item. Luckily i googled the e-mail address and saw that this was a scam before any transactions took place.
This lady hasaid contacted me via Gumtree to purchase an item I have for sale in was immediately suspicious and Google drive the address. Appear to be active scammers
They made me believe that they wanted to buy an item I had on sale on gumtree.com and said they wanted to pay with paypal. Then they sent a fake email with the paypal payment recipit. Then they sent me another email saying that they had payed 290£ more than due + another 40£ that I had to use to pay a courier to get the item delivered to them. I had to pay the 290£ to a giy in Nigeria (from UK) and use the 40£ as the fee for moneygram to send the money. This user has been reported to gmail as well. Their fake paypal email has been reported to paypal.
