Text message asking to email only about gumtree item for sale. Scam. this person texts me after I advertising gumtree item for sale: here his said:
Hi mate my father is keen to buy your bike on gumtree kindly write him back on seths19734 @ gmail.com for correspondence.Cheers.
After I email to his father this what I got:
Thanks for the reply mate, I'm fine with the condition as described on the advert, I won't be available to view because I’m recovering from surgery and my phone is not active as I am still at the hospital after. can you assure me i will not be disappointed? also no shipment involved as i have a mover that will come for it., but there are few things i would like to know about it. (1) are you the first owner (2)Let me know its condition (3)Your last asking price (4)send me the pictures.
As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT),using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service, I will need your bank details and I will make the payment through PayPal facility to your bank account, all I will need is your acct number, BSB number and acct name. With the issue of my details, transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the freight agent so you don't have to worry about that.
Sound like SCAM asking my bank detail..
Same experience with a Gumtree ad and received an almost identical reply from another number Text received wanting to confirm my address Scam, txt from gumtree said email email directly, I ignore and put on block on 23/3 /21 I received an email from kburgess570@gmail .com in response to a advertisement I placed in Gumtree for sale of tables. Person offered to buy tables for daughter but said unable to examine but would pay into my bank account and wanted my BSB and account number . Also said he would need to have tables delivered and would pay further $200 to account and arrange for Steam card to pick up. This person is a scammer as others have reported. Caller: 0421 661 655
Same as above, got a text after listing an item on gumtree, text asked for email contact;
Hi my mom would like to know if your listed items are still available for sale?kindly get back with the conditions and best prices at(shieldsd3300 @ gmail.com).Cheers
Blocked/deleted straight away, obvious scam.
Caller: A c*nt (sorry it was via text)

Person from 0421 661 655 texted me responding to my gumtree ad. Asked me to reply email only. I texted (not emailed) back but no reply. An hour later another text from same number with a different email address. Scammer. I have blocked this number Same here. Person texts saying mom is interested and wants price and condition of item. I email and get response saying item is fine and wants to pay using Paypal. Reply was typed poorly in English and seemed off. MF time wasting scammer piece of sh*t. Caller: 0421 661 655
yeah its a scam to get info
Same as all who have reported here, where the address of the scammer at this time is juessru28 @ gmail.com Hi my mom would like to know if your listed items are still available for sale?kindly get back with the conditions and best prices at(shieldsd3300 @ gmail.com)
This is what I got from a Gumtree add from this number. Scam.
Caller: 0421 661 655
Gumtree ads listed then text saying:
"Hi my mom would like to know if you still have your item for sale Kindly write her back at (shieldsd330 @ gmail.com) Cheers" for sure a scam !
Exactly the same as below but from a different number 0421 811 774. Twice now after Gumtree ads listed:
"Hi my mom would like to know if you still have your item for sale Kindly write her baak with your best at (shieldsd330 @ gmail.com) Cheers"
SCAM. I posted an ad to Gumtree. They texted me an hour later:
"I'm interested in your iPhone still up for sale.What is your asking price? pls email me on (kburgess570 @ gmail.com).
Lucky I googled the number - I thought it was very weird they were asking for price as the price was listed already. And asking to email separately - big red flag.
Yet another use of this number asking for an email. Fair dinkum, I wish there was some kind of way to prosecute these people.
The text said, "Hi, Just viewed your furniture on Gumtree still available for sale kindly please get back to me via my private email address (jessru28 @ gmail.com).
Same as the above complaints - likely a scam.
Scam text to phone. Scammer wanted to purchase item on Gumtree. He claimed to be too busy with work, buying item for poor cousin. Then said he has courier company that will pick up item but wants me to buy $200 Google Play gift cards and will reimburse me. Said courier company only accepts Google Play card. Definitely suspicious & SCAM.
