It hurts!! I have been scammed and lost £346 through a scammer operating through the Amazon.co.uk site.
If you see this guy selling anything don't buy it!!
The moment money transfer is mentioned, leave well alone.
The email addresses that I have corresponded though are:
Alexander Groom (email@example.com)
Hopefully other people will google their email addresses and come up with this.
Why would any trustworty retailer have hotmail & gmail addresses? They are coming across as legit UK based companies with corresponding company websites.
Again - leave well well alone - pure scammers.
What really annoys me is that Amazon was warned about this scammer in early december according to a forum on their site and still he appears. I got scammed but they should have closed this guy out in early December.
So if it can happen to an old hand like me it can happen to anyone.
