    My mate has been conversing with a Jamie on Gumtree. Very evasive character, won't provide side shots of his PAMP bars. Very strange behaviour with his location too. Fortunately my mate was wary of him.
    Caveat emptor.

    It was funny, my mate was interested because the sellers address was just one suburb over from us, so we could do a thorough inspection. Bloke says yeah yeah all good, where are you? We are just in the next Canberra suburb. All of a sudden the bloke says he's in Tweed Heads. Dodgey as.

    I can't believe people actually buy/sell bullion on dumbtree.
    What do you actually think you are going to get. o_O

    If you do your homework, have accurate measuring equipment, magnet & product specifications you greatly reduce your risk on F2F. Sight unseen is a whole different kettle of fish that I wouldn't encourage.

    Unfortunately I was not part of this page, a member brought my attention to this from a Facebook page. The joys or working nightshift and being tired. I've lodged a fraud case so if anyone else has had dealings with them we could maybe lodge your chats as well. Or has anyone lodged a case as well?

    The Gumtree add above has been removed as 'sold' a few days ago.

    Do you have a picture of the fake item you purchased?? What was the item, coin , minted bar or cast ounce?
    Could be of benefit to other members.

    Do you by chance still have the conversation you had to get these details
    Pamp 1oz bar bar was off colour, too thick, underweight. Was opened by Perth mint to verify properly
