    Just had a quick response to my post on Gumtree, and it was exactly the same as previous people have reported. I foolishly responded but didn't give my banking details. They seem to respond to bed ads! What do they hope to gain from this?!!

    Within 5 minutes of posting an ad on Gumtree she emailed.

    She was fine with the price and asked to pay via Osko payment direct deposit.

    $1050 for delivery and then another $2550 for insurance. Was promised I’d get a credit in my account.
    Next day apparently they had transferred funds twice and I couldn’t get my money back until I paid an additional $5500.

    Googled her name and came across this page, Called her out for being a scammer.

    Sadly I lost $3.5k, feel like a fool.

    Looked legit at first but as the emails went on I knew I had been fooled.

    Be careful everyone.

    Has exactly the same message from 'Linda Lasher' once I posted a lounge for sale on gumtree. Because the scam didn't work in their favour I am now receiving emails from AFP and PAYPAL threatening legal action against me. (Not sure how pay pal got involved). Interesting .......

    Just received this through Gumtree. I put up an Advert for furniture

    Thanks for the email. I work with Flagship Marine and we are presently offshore in New Zealand. We do not have access to the phone at the moment, it's 5days off and 25days on which is why I contacted you with an internet messaging facility. Where are you located at the moment?

    I am buying it and I want it delivered before my arrival. I won't be able to come for the inspection due to the nature of my work and I would have called but phone usage and calling are very restricted. I have also contacted a courier agent who will meet you for pick-up and delivery after payment has been cleared. Regarding the payment, please get back to me with your final asking price, Get back to me with your PayPal email or bank details, if you don't have, you can set up via www.PayPal.com.au

    Are you the Owner?
    What is The Final Price?

    I received the quickest response ever to my sofa for sale on gum tree via a person called Linda Lasher.
    After telling me she wanted to purchase it for her holiday home she then went on to say that she was away for work and would send me the money via PayPal to cover the cost of goods plus freight.

    The dead giveaway was the email from PayPal misspelt my first name and it was pretty easy to see the grammar was almost identical to The scum bag con artists.

    This user was under Craig L on gumtree and all I can say is be extremely meticulous with details when it comes to emails and exchange as there would no doubt be some people who genuinely fall for this type of garbage.
