Great! please consider it sold and i want you to remove the advert as i am willing to pay your full asking price because i need to buy it for my cousin asap, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it. Unfortunately i would not be able to come personally to collect due to my hearing loss and I'm just recovering from heart surgery so I'm house-bound,
I have a courier agent that would help me to pick it up at your preferred location after you have received your money and i'll pay you via PayPal once you are ready.

Kindly get back to me with your location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now?

OK,Kindly get back to me with your location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now.
Also,you can send me your PayPal email and registered name with your actual price so that i can send the money right away and choose a good time for the pick up after payment has been received.


And the scam - the email will not be from PayPal and a request for money to be sent via Money Gram.
I am glad to inform you that i have made the payment! PayPal said that they have sent you a confirmation email so kindly check the inbox of your email.
I had a little problem with the courier agent they said they can only schedule the pick up date and time after they receive their pick up fee in their head office via moneygram,but due to my health condition i'm unable to get to a moneygram shop to send it. I added the £495 they charged for the pick up and £40 for the moneygram charges,you will receive the total sum of £4,245.
You'll send £455 to them via moneygram today and here is the details needed for the transfer below:

First name : Ajaypal
Last name : SINGH
City: Nicosia
Zip Code: 2020
Country: Cyprus

Please let me know once you've sent the money so that i can make necessary arrangements.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

Hi Guys

Just want to thank you all for posting this......I put a Fitbit on Gumtree last night and received a text asking me to e-mail him and then I got the exact same message about being 'on' a wheelchair, it was for his cousin and that he would pay full price via paypal.

Just didn't seem 100% geniune, so glad I googled it as I could have easily just gone along with it.

Thank you :beer:

Morning all

He or they are still at it - got the same mail this morning.....

I wont post my reply as it probably breaks a few rules :laugh-s:

I really hope everybody that receives a mail/text/whatsapp from this guy does a google search on his name/email address.

Is he still using the same email address?

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Thanks for posting, he is still active on Gumtree. Exactly the same scam looking to buy fishing equipment. You saved me a lot of hassle. Do Gumtree know about him?

Hi, he's still up to his old tricks. He contacted us re an item we had on Gumtree. We received the email word for word as the original poster. We have not sent him any money and my husband has sent him a suitably worded reply!

Thanks for this information
I just got the same email from this scum relating to something I am selling.

I have asked him to confirm his Address since I am not working and will happily save him some courier money..... if it’s close I may even get some friends to visit :laugh-s:

Still using the same scam, the only thing that has changed since the original is the name is cambel instead of campbell, as i received the identical script when i was selling some weight training gear through gumtree
