His name is Dinesh Kumar and his number is 0404 232 374 he will attempt to get you to pay for something and will send you false proof of postage or tracking and will always send edited photos without dates or full tracking numbers and once he's secured the money he leaves and ignores you. He also often stalls by saying he's "at work" or that "He needs his girlfriend to take another picture" but never gets back to you.
I don't wish for anyone to fall for his trap like i did
He's at it again. I posted a wanted ad on Gumtree for a toy for My son. He answered with images I have since discovered on the internet. Paid him the $72 and now no reply!! Stupidly I trusted him when he said he could set up a PayPal account but I transferred via bank instead because he sounded so genuine
This guy on number 0404 232 374 said his name was Kumar contacted a wanted ad I had on Gumtree, had exactly what i wanted to buy at a good price but claims he was in Busselton, exactly the same MO as listed above, sends pics say he'll send student id, passport and tracking image, but a bit pushy. I was lucky I felt something was a bit strange, I asked him to trust me and send the products to me and I would pay when i got them. then he shut up.
Caller: Dinesh Kumar Chennamaneni
His name is Dinesh Kumar Chenna maneni. I posted an ad looking for a game capture card for $250, he offered for $230 for one he owns. So I asked for proof to take a photo of his username written on a piece of paper and the item together. He did.
I asked for ID, he sent tax file number, ABN, student ID, Passport, and it seemed all legit. But I should have checked his contact details, he won't answer on this number, and his work number is for a tax refund business in Blacktown NSW, he lives in Goldcast. At least that's what he told me. He promised to ship to me this Monday and it's Sunday now. He never replied to any of my messages.
I'm contacting my bank and soon reporting to the police. It's too bad I only noticed that I'm not the only victim who has fallen to his scam.
This guys scammed me last week too. I am not happy at all. Trying to report him to his uni, but nothing is working. Caller: 0404 232 374
Same thing happened to me whats the go lads?
Caller: Same guy from first post
Scammer who is willing to send his passport picture and student ID to sell you something, then completely ignores you. Report him to the AFP because he will have problems leaving the country
