This guy!!got me good,I hadn’t done my due diligence in checking his background.should of would of could of.. avoid this doosh bag. Yes he done me for $300 for roo bar I had the same experience, he contacted me on gumtree to a wanted add I had posted,
said he could send it for $300 including postage and handling, I spoke to him on the phone and all sounded legit, he sent through his drivers licence and bank details and i sent the money, then he asked for another $150 as shipping was much more than he thought, heavy bulky item it was still a good deal so I sent the extra, after that wouldn't take my calls only messaged a couple of time to say he's sending it, I've called so many time and nothing, this guy is a low life criminal.

He's a scammer. He replied to my wanted add on Gumtree. He wont answer any calls and uses a fake or stolen license under the name of Samuel Taplin. he sends through fake shipping consignments and wants 50% deposit then the other 50% after sending the consignment through. He needs to be held accountable by the law and Gumtree! Please be careful Gumtree users and if you hear from him get in touch with the police!
