    yes i tried selling on Gumtree, instant reply from this person

    Thanks for the payment details and am happy to proceed with the
    payment, however i just got a confirmation mail from the shipping
    agent now that i will need to pay for the freighting fees before they
    can schedule pre-shipping/ pickup date,they charged $1,050 for the
    pick up and delivery, but the problem is they only accept Tranferwise
    money transfer as a form of payment which is sent to their HQ.

    I need a Credit or Debit card to personally take care of that but I didn't
    bring it along as I am currently on duty and had thought there would
    be no need for bringing it along.

    As you are well aware of, due to the nature of my work am away and do
    not have access to Tranferwise, most Store have
    transferwise section and you can also send it online
    will it be ok with you if I add the $1,050 to the
    amount I am transferring? and you can help me make the transferwise
    transfer of the freighting fees through transferwise money transfer?
    You are not obliged to help me, but i will indeed appreciate
    your help as I am a little incapacitated here

    "She" replied to a Gumtree ad. I asked her to reply from her Flagship Marine email address. Here's her original reply to the ad:

    Thanks a lot for the email. I work with Flagship Marine and we are presently offshore in New Zealand. We do not have access to phone at the moment, its 5days off and 25days on which is why I contacted you with 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, I can transfer money through secure online bank transfer, you can alternatively send your BSB and account number, payment can also go through PayPal, if you don't have, you can set up at www.paypal.com

    Kindly get back to me with the following questions below:
    Account number
    Account name
    BSB number.

    1) Are you the Owner?
    2) Pick up Location?
    3)what is The final Price

    He sent me the same email requesting payment for the courier because he doesn’t have his credit card on him. Started getting suspicious and found this site. I can’t believe he is scamming people. I gave him my bank details. I hope he doesn’t use my personal details to try access my banking account.
