GUMTREE FRAUD


Was contacted by a SIXTUS BUTHELEZI ID: 6705225411089 (072)6343474 who wanted to purchase a laptop for his cousin/friend, that was leaving that night. And would EFT amount and send proof of payment.  A false POP came through. (NO ref number) with which to check against bank) No money in the bank. Fortunately I insisted on checking with the bank before releasing the hardware. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS TRAP.WARNING FLAGS: 1 Too EAGER TO PURCHASE without checking product. 2 Need the item URGENTLY. 3 Suspect Proof of Purchase.
