I advertised a car on Gumtree a couple of weeks ago. Within thirty seconds of submitting the ad, my phone rang with someone advising me about the accident I was supposed to have had recently. |
I asked them a for a few details but they started to sound confused, so I hung up.
Literally thirty seconds later, I had another phone call from someone else asking me about an apparent accident I was supposed to have had. Again, I hung up.
Thirty seconds later, I had another phone call about details of a settlement of £4000 about an accident I was supposed to have had. I asked them if they wanted my bank details (not that I was going to give them) to wind them up but decided life was too short and hung up.
Coincidence with the advert on Gumtree ????
