Exactly the same... I got a text from "Samantha Holmes" asking for only email contact after I posted an ad in GUMTREE!! to sell my camper trailer. Claimed she lived in Darwin, is a Squadron Leader in RAAF and is on deployment ATM hence limited phone contact. Also said that her courier would come to pick up from Perth. Too good to be true! received a text from this no about buying our caravan unsited from a soldier about to go on deployment????.......it went quiet after refusing to give our bank details. Another number connected to this so called s14holmes, Samantha Homles is 0428 847 112 I also received a txt message lastnight from a person asking about an ad I had posted, asking to email at s14holmes @ gmail.com and no txts please. I emailed back and have had no reply. I am so happy I accidentally found this complaint page or I wouldn't have known it was a scam- not that I'm silly enough to give out my details though! Why do people do thing like this????!!!! Received a message requesting for me to email her about my vehicle i posted on Gumtree.
Email address is Samantha Holmes - s14holmes @ gmail.com - phone number is 0436 597 002 & 0439 760 635
Says shes a squadron leader at royal australian air force and has been recently deployed.
Said her courier would pick up.
this is a scam, do not give her your bank details or paypal.

Soldier on deployment wanting to buy caravan, sight unseen. Originally texted only (phone calls apparently unavailable from where she was!!!!) and then changed to email only and wanted bank account details. Didn't hear from again when this was refused! Received a message on 15-12-2017 saying call state revenue office to check first home owners grant. A text received asking me to call a repair centre on a 1300 number regarding my faulty device. received a text from this number wanting to buy a car sight unseen from a soldier in NT. Could not dial this number, only text. Very very dodgy. Apparently Telstra informing NBN maintenance. Not a customer, nor have NBN. Not clicking on the URL. SMS supposedly from Telstra informing NBN service interruption on Nov 6. Gives a link to telstra.com/servicestatus - I'm not a Telstra customer, nor do I have NBN, so guess its scam? Not clicking on the link anyway.....
