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. Scam. Story about eldest son, top of class, wants to buy my car advertised on gumtree. 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 im selling a item on gumtree and had a text kelvinbrad5501 @ gmail.com scammer i think Appointment confirmation Wish I had seen this prior - I also got scammed by this guy.
