I got scammed on gumtree by a guy who sent me his passport and student ID in a picture, he was suppose to send me a phone in the mail but he ignored me once I paid him through PayID.
I have his IP, email and other information including his whatsapp phone number.
Get him back, he deserves everything he gets and he stole from the wrong person.
His email: [email protected]
His IP address: 184.108.40.206
Whatsapp ID: +61 404 232 374
Am I allowed to post pictures that he sent me of his passport? I don't know the rules for posting pictures so I left it out.
He will click links if you say "I have some interesting information", but he started using a VPN once I sent him his own IP address on gumtree.
I reported everything to scamwatch which is an Australian scam reporting site, I called my bank to do an investigation into the scammers ANZ australian bank account which is linked to his whatsapp phone number via PayID.
Anyone know what else I can do to try retrieving my money?
So far I've taken it as a win loose because I lost $200AUD but also got details about his bank accounts and IP address before he started using a proxy or VPN.
Any ideas what to do now?
Some help on what to do would be greatly appreciated, thanks
