Tried to scam me via Gumtree - there running a scam by trying to get you accept payment via an australia post link by communicating through whatsapp..
Be careful out there people
Another SMS scam link sent to me. Block this number immediately Caller: Brenda
Had an ad on Gumtree, she replied via WhatsApp, she said she has organised with Auspost to send a courier to pickup just to send through card details to pay for it. The auspost site looked legit, had the Auspost logo with the lock, also the secure form etc
Have reported her
I also had an encounter with this scam someone Brenda replying to a Gumtree Advert wanting to purchase and payment thru Aust Post. Please be aware this is a Scam! Caller: Brenda
Confirming the scam, block them.
Very Polite, I thought it was true, even the web site looked so real.
Gumtree became a source of scammers, not to mention painful peoples...
Thanks to all previous victims' contribution. I got the exactly same information from her ( I think maybe it's him or them.) I think they are dangerous because their communications are very polite, like a well educated person, they act as trustworthy.
Gumtree scammer. Attempted to con me by asking me to enter my card details to receive payment via a non-existant 'door to door' AusPost courier service:
"I want to buy, please tell me if it would be convenient for you if I arranged for door-to-door delivery via AusPost? 🥰
It's very simple, I pay via AusPost, then you confirm the order, receive payment, the courier contacts you tomorrow.😊
This is a great service, I'm sure you will use it in the future!)
Best regards Brenda"
Gumtree/Marketplace traders BEWARE
A sophisticated scam so beware!
Caller: Brenda on whats app
Again she told me Aus post would pick up my product.. funny thing is I'm a team leader at Aus post and we don't do that service

Gumtree scam. Contacted me through WhatsApp. Said she could arrange to pay for my item through Australia Post and pay them to collect it from the house. Put in card details for the finds to go to. Cancel the cards immediately.
Thanks for the post. I have also been contacted by this person via whatsapp replying to my ad. Whatsapp message to add in Gumtree but no reply. Dodgy Gumtree scam
