Gumtree Fraud, never received the money

I posted an add on Gumtree to sell my Defy Fridge and Defy Washing Machines. Kevin Mallard, using the following email address: and using the number 0603385852 forwarded me proof of payment and I received a payment notification vis sms as well. Hind sight is always 20/20, the number goes straight to voicemail now and his courier folks have picked up everything already. Keep a good lookout for this guy. I have pics of the vehicle's number plate as well as the guys that took the appliances.

    Hi guys. Thanks for the warning. I just received a similar email from Ryan using email Probably the same guy. Also received phone call from someone wanting my banking details in order to make a payment and then collect. Guys are taking chances. Be careful.

    On 25th of April Ryan rmallard @ therugby in reply to Gumtree ad sent me similar proposal. Possibly the same person as Kevin.

    Good day, I had advertised gym equipment for sale, and he did the exact same thing, except , I told him that I need the funds cleared in my account before he sends his courier, he still has the cheek to email me telling me that he stopped the payment because he sensed I didn't have the goods, he is a scam, be on the watch for him,
