"I am cannot pick up in person. I can arrange delivery. I will pay all expenses myself. Does it suit you?
I will arrange everything and pay. After you receive the money, the courier will contact you and arrive at a convenient time for you. Best regards Alex Mitchell

Total scammer, same as the posts above I called the number, Disconnected. This guy is still about for so long with the same number. Useless police catch me for doing 4 kms over the speed limit though! 😤

"I am cannot pick up in person. I can arrange delivery. I will pay all expenses myself. Does it suit you?
I will arrange everything and pay. After you receive the money, the courier will contact you and arrive at a convenient time for you. Best regards Alex Mitchell

Just open the link and indicate the account to which the money will be received"

Same happened to me. Messaged on WhatsApp and sent me details to a gumtree ad I had put up saying “ I can't pick up in person, but I can arrange delivery. I will arrange everything myself and pay all expenses. bank transfer suit you?”. I was suspicious at this point and said I would do via pay pal. They did not reply after this. Thank goodness for this forum. Alex Mitchell appears to also be under the number 0485 841 846. Definitely a scam

Same experience as everyone here.
The WhatsApp number is 0485 841 846 - it may change though - but the number on the fake AusPost website in his personal details section is 0403 103 491.

Same story, sent Auspost link asking for bank details offering to facilitate the entire delivery at his own cost. Auspost website looks legit but is missing '.com.au'

"Alex" is still at it.
He contacted me 13/14 July 2022 trying to convince me to give my credit card details to his special "Australia Post Delivery Service". I called Australia Post. This service does not exist. I reported him to Scams @ auspost.com.au
Australia Post will never ask for your credit card details online/ by phone call.

The number contacted me on gumtree about an item for sale, he almost had me but I clicked on the auspost link, it asked for my card details which isn't required if someone is paying you. Came to google to check the number and good thing I did. Stay safe everyone and stay wary.
The scam number was 0403 103 491

I posted items on gumtree and Alex replied via WhatsApp. Said he was going to send a courier to pick up the items and he'll pay now. Alex sent a auspost link and told me to enter the account I'd like to be paid into.. I immediately googled the number and wowzus! Thank goodness I did

I advertised an item on gumtree, and had an enquiry from this so-called ‘Alex’ who claimed they were too sick to collect and would arrange postage and payment via Australia post, I clicked on the link and it requested credit card details where the money would be deposited. Stupid me did it, and had $400 taken out of my account. Do not do it!!!!

Claimed to be Alex. Contacted me via whatsapp for an item I had free to give away via Gumtree. Claimed to be sick. Wanted bank details so he could pay and arrange for courier. SCAM beware. Blocked.
