Responded to my wanted add on gumtree with what I needed at a cheap price. Offered delivery if I transferred him $10 with balance paid on delivery. Then asked for $10 more. Googled number - he’s a scammer and does this to so many people. Blocks you after you transfer him money. Don’t believe him!
Try’s scam you from gum tree add for delivery money and gets abusive when you decline.
Never pay a deposit or accept deposits.
Always pay on delivery.
Caller: What sounded like an English guy
Gum tree call.
Always wants a deposit to deliver something. Coy about giving you information over the phone. Abusive when you decline. Scammer
I’m in WA
Contacted my partner directly on her mobile after posting an ad on Gumtree for a cleaner.
He milked her for $15 in total (deposit and "cleaning supplies") then tried me for petrol money. This got rejected by my bank due to fraud suspicion.
Messages no longer answered, phone now diverts to voicemail.
It looks like his bank account has been suspended already (according to the fraud department at my bank).
He also mentioned his partner "Jenny" so it seems he has a theme running.
Scammer Caller: ‘jennifer’ on gumtree

Went by Jason - gumtree scammer dog - wants payid transfer then no shows . Report him to commonwealth bank so that they can see multiple scam reports and block his account

He is a time waster. Don't believe anything he tells you!
