Perhaps we need to look at why the law basically doesn't exist since it is completely ignored by the people meant to enforce it when it happens online.
It's 2019 and the internet isn't that much of a mysterious novelty any more, and the pigs should be dealing with it properly.
Yep- we got scammed by Louisa Williams, should’ve done a check of her number first.. she claimed to live rural Melbourne and that’s why selling phone cheap as no one is buying in her area.. even claimed she was a teenager whose parents are “super worried she’ll be scammed” but I was the sucker..

Thief / Liar / Scam Artist
BEWARE LOUISA WILLIAMS ....she will steal from her own mum if she needed to
My 15 year old daughter placed a wanted add on gumtree looking for an iPhone 8 Plus...Louisa contacted her saying she was a 19 year old from tweed heads who had one she wanted to sell
Wanted $450...but my daughter explained she was a student and could afford that so the price kept tumbling down to $170 for an excellent condition iPhone 8 Plus....hmmm.....my daughter asked for picks and some of the picks had SIM card installed others has no SIM card installed. Her hands didn’t look like a 19 year olds either....
She could prefer my daughter paid $100 deposit ....but she couldn’t provide photo I’d??
LOISA WILLIAMS IS A LIAR AND THIEF
BECAREFUL SHE WILL SCAM YOU
Posted a wanted ad on gumtree looking for a phone, got a message saying “Hey I saw your gumtree ad, I am selling my iPhone 7 Plus, it’s 256GB and in perfect condition, I’d be happy with $350 😊” I wouldn’t buy from this person seeing the comments left here tried to scam me for a Nintendo switch but i managed reverse the payment via paypal Gumtree is an advertising venue for LOCAL, FACE-TO-FACE transactions. Read it in their terms; that's why they don't have any payment handling or tracking. If you want to buy something from someone you can't visit face-to-face to pick the item up (and pay cash for it at the time), look on eBay - otherwise you're just BEGGING to be exploited by con artists like this.
Also remember the axiom, IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS!

Scammed me of $225 - claimed when i transferred deposit of $75 that it went to a different account and that she sent it back. DO NOT trust this woman - i tried to buy a series 3 apple watch off of her and she seemed great and really trustworthy, but then scammed me $225. Please BEWARE of this lady !!! as a 19 year old casual (especially with corona) i don’t have that sort of money to spare, but i’d been wanting this for so long i decided to buy one and this happened !!!
I wish i knew about this website earlier. Got scammed by her on Sunday of $480. So frustrating. But lesson learnt for the first time. Caller: Louisa williams

Posted a 'wanted' ad on gumtree asking for a 2nd hand phone as mine had broke. She said that she could post it to me if I did a deposit, then paid the other half when i recieved it. I asked for her address and she said "Mildura" I said I knew someone there that could pick it up and then she responded with "great" and never replied again.
Almost got scammed. PLEASE do yourself a favour and don't buy from them.

Scammed by Louisa Williams for me WTB on Gumtree ad, I was after two iphones for my kids for Christmas. I had other phones lined up which I then cancelled because she had better ones, or so she said and she had photos. Asked for a deposit which I stupidly borrowed to pay her, My ad stated I was on a pension and begged people to be reasonable. This person is cruel. I am contacting the police now.
I was looking for a MacBook Pro and she offered me a very good condition 2012 retina 15”. They are $600+ the condition and specs she offered. She said $300 or 150 now, 100 once I receive the product and 50 when I can. She is a scammer after saying she lived in Mildura and typing messages in such quick times she was copying and pasting. Made sure I didn’t buy it after reading this. Scammer (Louisa Williams) DONT BUY ANYTHING FROM HER!

Lousia Williams contacted me through gumtree after seeing my wanted ad for a PS4.
She asked for a mobile number to send photos through to and then she wouldn't except paypal as payment method for this so called 'deposit'
I then paid her via bank transfer and she provided me with a fake tracking number - contacted auspost which then told me that the number had 13 complaints relating to it.
DO NOT SELL OR GIVE MONEY TO LOUISA WILLIAMS
Do not buy nothing off her. Tried scamming me on gumtree. Item I was after was $750 and she said to deposit $200 then pay the rest when you receive it at the post office.
