Exactly the same thing happened with a table I was trying to sell on Gumtree...be careful everyone!
Caller: WhatsApp message from “Linda Haynes” same number
Claims to be in Bathurst and wants to buy an item I have listed on Gumtree… AusPost movers will pick it up. “She” pays and I go to this (pseudo) website she gives to receive payment.. amazed that these scammers have no creativity and repeat the same details for many targets.
They are at it again today. Same dodgy copy cat website. Same as all the others - via Gumtree, fake courier, even sent fake website with fake ‘gumtree delivery’ URL. Fair bit of care taken to make it look legit. Disappeared when I suggested it seemed like a scam when the link provided requested login details for my online banking! Caller: Linda Haynes

Gumtree scammer. Attempts to send “Auspost Movers” (not a thing) and sends a fake website, and will “pay through gumtree, then you can get the money from them” (also not a thing). Block and delete.

Linda replied to my gumtree ad via WhatsApp. I’m located in Perth, WA.. and she is apparently in Bathurst, NSW. Sounded suspicious so I told her that I’m sure there is one available closer to her
Pretended wanted to buy an item from a Gumtree add via a dodgy courier delivery. Provided a link re gumtree payment/delivery - link not legit. All comms via WatsApp Same as previous person, responded via whatsapp and said something about wanting the device and doing it via australia post. Basically i'm sure it would end up being a SCAM. Gumtree scammer, claiming to refund through gumtree direct.
