SCAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wrote him an e-mail just to see the reply.. and here it is .

Hello

Thanks for your email.



I have the canon and its still for sale.

I am selling it as I do not use it at all and its too much of a good camera to be sat in a box



So £700.00 would be the price, Its brand new never been used only took out of the box to see its all fine

Its got 500 shutter counts on it

The reason the price is low is because that's what is what I was offered at a shop called cash converters even though I paid over 3000 pounds for all of it. I need the money asap so selling it on here to someone genuine rather then a company making massive profits out of me.



Okay could you pick up from my address ? Here is my address

Number 22 Fore Street

St Ives

Cornwall

TR26 1AB

You can come anytime of the day as my husband will be in.

I work most days but my husband will be in.



Or he can meet you in st ives town centre..

If you can't get here then I wouldn't mind posting you the canon with royal mail next day delivery. I will cover the postage fees as its only cheap.



I can post it for next day delivery as the post office is right outside my works place.



I would want the money into my bank account if you wanted it posted I wouldn't use paypal as they charge and I need the money fast hence the price.



So if you want to get back to me with what you want to do I will be waiting for your email back thanks.



So if you want to pick them up we are waiting, or if you want it posted to your home address we can do that too.



Kind regards


Lisa

The address is right at the bottom of the UK so most people would not travel to pickup !!!

If it's too good to be true, then it's a scam. Simple as that....

These kind of ads pops up on my local gumtree all the time too.

Looks like the address is an art gallery http://www.list.co.uk …0002613-belgrave-gallery/ (external link)

If i lived within a short distance i would be tempted to see what the scam was.

The ad has been pulled now. I've reported several scam ads myself. One was "selling" a "I've used it once" 400mm f/2.8 IS for £1800. Clearly a scam because no one in their right mind would have sold that lens at that price. I had one idiot on Gumtree try to scam me when I was selling. I replied and said "How is the weather there in Lagos?" (Nigeria). The jack@$$ actually replied saying "It's fine".

I'm afraid it's back, with duplicates. Persistent.
