Buyer offers to pay full price, on item advertised on gumtree, asked to deal through email not website, buy sight unseen, asks bank account details and courier to pick up. Lives far away from purchase item and deals through email- no call or text. Offers extensive excuses for why they cannot come. Presume they then take item and contest purchase it make overpayment it falsify payment receipt.
Received no contact once I called her (him??) out on their scam.

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.
