Gumtree scam

Post by Geraldine » 2 years ago

We were notified first from Haven reception about 5 phone calls they had checking out a van we had on Gumtree. Someone by the name of Jo Jones was renting our van thro' a similar Advert on Gumtree. 1 customer I replied to earlier got back in touch saying she had been contacted by J J to rent our van - fortunately she knew we had no vans available so didnt bite - however I had 2 more from "Customers!" who had bought - advised paying using PayPal!
How many other copies of owner vans sold like this is unknown. The Police were informed and so was Gumtree
