http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/forumdisplay.php/162-ClassifiedsThe fact is I genuinely want to sell my new iPhone 6 Plus and I don't know where to advertise it as all I get on gumtree is fake scammers which gumtree takes no responsibility to filter them.
This is still going around so thought I would update this thread. Thought it sounded plausable, but my BS radar was going off so did a bit of searching. Beware OLX and Gumtree sellersI am really interested in buying this for my cousin as a surprise for him, only if you can assure me that everything is in order, I am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore I really want this to be a surprise for my cousin so I won't let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him, I am sure he will be more than happy with it.It will be secured paying via PayFast as I'm on a rig offshore.So let me know if you have an account with Payfast so I can make the payment.
Note well: Pick up agent will come for the pick up as soon as I have made the payments, I would have loved to talk to you on the phone but I work mainly offshore, our phone is down on the rig right now due to the inclement weather, and we can only communicate with our base for now. Thanks
They love to use stolen cheque books, normally they will come and do a quote for parts then a couple of days later say that they have done an EFT.I have 4 close call scam attempts on Gumtree, but you really just have to look out for stolen cheque deposits, photoshopped proof of payment, fake money, and people who want to send their own courier to collect.
Now this I likeThey love to use stolen cheque books, normally they will come and do a quote for parts then a couple of days later say that they have done an EFT.
We played along once . . . . Took all the old parts from the workshop, wrapped them up in boxes and had one of the guys come pick the old rubbish up.
After that we haven't had one for a while now.
