I have been advertising a computer on GumtreeSomeone keen to buy called me up yesterday.They were willing to pay more than the offered
price, wated to do and EFT and sent an sms 'proof of payment' I asked for an
email, they sent one with a proof of payment and proof of residence. I checked
the proof of payment by phoning their bank and they said it was not trustworthy. I phoned the guy and said I didn't want to do the deal any more. Then I called
my other customer back and the same thing happened again, same technique, sms
then email and here is the funny bit the proof of residence was exactly the
same as before with the name changed. They two guys called themselves
Richardson Baron and Alex Kalal. Both email addresses were @mail.com. Their phone numbers were: Richardson Baron: +27 071 812 7918Alex Kalal: +27 82 512 3267The proof of residence address given was: 02 CNR JOE SLOVO DR & ST JOHNS STR UPPER HOUGHTON KILLARNEY AREA JOHANNESBURG 2198
Beware of these guys it is obviously a syndicate of some sort!
On Gumtree insist on cash only!
