Warning - potential scammers asking for money for couriers

Hi all,

It has been brought to my attention that there are potential scammers in our midst attempting to con people out of money.

The scam usually works along the following lines: They post on the freecycle group, and when you respond, they advise that they have had to move away from the area. They advise that they would be happy to send you the item if you are willing to send the some $ for the courier/postage.

I have had four reports over the last few days, with each offer coming from a different email address.

If you encounter a reply from an offer where they ask you to pay for postage, please forward the email on to me so I can take action against it.
