Twice with fake SD Cards on eBay. Reported and got a refund. Now only buy from a few geniune sellers I have saved.

Also once with gumtree, my first big scam in the 2000's. Sold a PS3 to some scumbag in Jhb. He paid with a stolen cheque. Funds 'cleared', I shipped it up, and then amount was reversed a few days later. Hope they are dead! Never again fallen for those type of scams.

Got scammed out of R500 by a 'Groenie' on Gumtree that was related to a spate of scams run by some members of the Groenewald family on Carbonite

Yes one those work from home scams on Gumtree about a decade ago. Luckily I was broke and they only took R30 out of my account before I caught on
