Classified Ads Scam
| Gumtree sale scam Offered to buy item only having seen photos but couldn't collect because of her disabilities. Wanted to purchase via PayPal but would include additional £125 for delivery, to buy Amazon gift vouchers to pay for courier. I understand from other posts here that I would receive a believable PayPal request to verify the the gift card code to release the full payment to my account. Needless to say, the PayPal email was part of the scam. |
Challenged "her" to give me her address so that I could deliver and be paid in cash instead. No reply since.

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.
