    Scam - Contact via email only wanted to buy car for his son's graduation offering more than what we had listed. Then received an email from a dodgy paypal email address From: Service @ PayPal.com.au <Fund_Verified @ mail2australia.com>. Apparently he is in the navy email adress was kelvinbrad5501 @ gmail.com. I'd already give my bank details to transfer his payment just as well there is only $9 in it.

    Same got an email from Bobby Coombes, fake name of course, saying they wanted to buy a car as a present for their son as a surprise and that they would not be able to deal with the transaction themselves and it had to go through an agent. They then sent an email saying they had deposited the money in my account but that in order for me to access the funds I had to transfer money to their agent first. Total scam, hope people google this before falling for their scams. the email address they used for Paypal was Fund_Verified @ mail2Australia.com

    Received text from gumtree ad (I am selling my motorbike) with a fellow interested in buying.
    gave email address: kelvinbrad5501 @ gmail.com
    first email from him was long winded, and he then asked for history of bike and now:
    "Thanks for your details explained and i'm okay with the full condition of the bike now , the agent will be signing all the necessary document on my behalf. So kindly reply back to me with your Bank Account details ( Account Number, BSB Number and Account Name ) so i can proceed with the payment now asap"
