It started as a brutal search for festival tickets on Gumtree australia, but two guys on the NSW Central Coast are the faces of the online ticket fraud should be, and are accused of scamming others. gumtree au

Byron and Scott, two friends and independent entrepreneurs say their stolen licenses used by a scammer ticket on Gumtree.

The state fraud squad, which has looked into the matter, saying it was the work of one of the organized crime syndicates that are moving heavily into identity theft.

In February, the couple tried to buy tickets to the sold-Maitland leg of Groovin the Moo. They found a seller on Gumtree offer tickets at cost - about $ 120. The seller sent a photo of what he said was his own driver's license, as well as two pieces of ID from his "partner". gumtree australia

In return, they sent pictures of their license.

But when the seller demanded they pay by card-less cash transfer, instead of using PayPal, they withdrew from the transaction.

We both wish we just lost $ 200 instead of our licenses, "Scott said.

"We were approached by the NSW Police fraud squad saying we are under investigation because both our names on a list of fraud to say that we fraudsters."

They have also been approached by others who say they are victims of their scam - sales on Gumtree with their license had tickets never arrived, or were sold fake.

They believe that some of these people are real victims, but others seem cases of scammers are trying to extort more money. gumtree au

"They try to double-dip," said Scott Hack.

Byron's wife received a Facebook message from a woman claiming to be ripped off by Byron and she demands to send money to her bank account.

"I know where you work and will make contact with your boss know of this case," reads the message. gumtree
