Caller: ‘Gabrielle Henderson’
Scammer! Stole $ for non existent tickets.. sent the money then asked for more, obviously knew immediately when they did that I’d be taken. Scum. Do not trust.
Replied to wanted ad on gumtree kept asking for more money biggest con artist I've even come across
Scammer. Responded to a wanted Ad on Gumtree. Wouldn't accept cash on pickup and, say they had no drivers licence to send as a photo and wouldn't accept cash on pickup. When Google image searching the photo they sent my it was from an old eBay ad.
Caller: Identified themselves as Michelle
Responded to a wanted ad I placed. Refused to send me a photo of items. Just wanted me to pay and then would send the items. All the hallmarks of a Scammer on Gumtree.
Selling Easter show tickets after put in gumtree add requesting tickets.
