Gumtree — fraudster using gumtree to get money - reported to fraud dept
I am trying very hard to get Gumtree to listen.
They have a lady who uses the Gumtree site looking for people who are looking for houses to rent. We are getting approach by the woman called Elzbieta Wakeling claiming to have a house she wants to rent out.
She bombards you with emails asking for money £500 up front to view a house that is not hers. I and several others have been targeted. Mine was so bad that I had to call in fraud dept.
Gum tree should vet these people. I have added it to facebook along with the fake passport and fake deeds etc to a house that I visited and the real owners are mortified.
I have many different phone numbers and email addresses elating to this woman and I and others all have the same story she gives us. I think gumtree could do better and are partly responsible for helping fraudsters like this woman by not checking them out.
