6206133597084 GUMTREE SCAM


I advertised furniture on Gumtree. This person named Walter phoned and asked if furniture is still available. We arranged for payment and also for his truck to come and collect it.I felt uneasy,since her over-assured himself by sending his ID.I googled his ID number and found tons of people who were scammed by the same person.He sent me proof of payment and it seemed VERY legit,via e-mail and sms.Don't allow any furniture to leave your premises without physical monies received!

    This pig is a foreigner who came to our country so that he can scam us. His puppet came to me with a cab:Raleigh Shuttles nr plate CT 11 PS GP. If anyone knows this cab please don't hesitate to contact me. My nr is 0842014989. These xenophobias need to be taught a lesson cause the SAPS never helps us out.

    Exactly the same person bought my Laptop but now he was going by the name of Nick Mooller. He also sent his Id copy proof of payment and Proof of Resenditial. The last time I heard from him was when my laptop got collected by the driver who came to pick it up.

    Exactly the same person bought my Laptop by R10 000 but now he was going by the name of Nick Mooller. He also sent his Id copy proof of payment and Proof of Resenditial. The last time I heard from him was when my laptop got collected by the driver who came to pick it up. Only to find that all this was just a scam, the money does not reflect in my account.

    We had the same with our playstation. He sent proof of payment and ID but when I said I couldn't meet him immediately (I even spoke to him on the phone), I never heard from him again. Thank goodness he didn't get the playstation!

  • Johan10 19 Feb 2014, 05:49 PM

    The exact same happened to me, but I trust too much and sold my Playstation 3 to a man named Charles Moyana, he paid but the money was fraudulent and I now have no playstation and I don't have the R6000
