This person responded to an advert on Gumtree for a room to let, asking for further details. Further details were sent and she said she wanted the room, and would pay via paypal. Then she asked us to pay a shipping company $435 so she could ship her belongings - which of course she would refund us! . We were already suspicious - so this was not really a surprise, just confirmation it was a scam. A quick google of the email address threw up other instances of the scam, surprisingly they are still using the same email address.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
