Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way


Virginia Malcher had an old couch she was wanting to get rid of.  

After being told it wouldn’t be accepted by a local op shop because it wasn’t in the best nick, she decided to sell it online via classifieds website Gumtree.

This simple decision resulted in the loss of faith in her bank — and saw more than $1,000 taken from her account. 

The keen buyer

A woman responded to Ms Malcher’s ad rather quickly, contacting her via messaging platform WhatsApp. 

“I got this call straight away from this woman,” she explains. 

“She said she lived in Brisbane and really wanted it.”

Keep in mind, Ms Malcher lives in NSW, so the buyer would have had to get the couch couriered to her. 

“I said, ‘it’s going to cost you a lot’ and she was like ‘my company will get it’,” Ms Malcher says. 

“I’ll send you the courier details; give me your account, and I’ll pay straight away.”
