A BONBEACH woman who arranged to buy a Bugaboo double pram via an online classifieds site received a rude surprise when the seller absconded with her $650 payment.
The woman, 30, told Kingston detectives she began communicating with the private seller back in April. After several emails, she arranged a delivery time and then transferred the purchase amount via direct debit.
Early in May, the seller promised to provide a consignment or tracking number once the pram had been picked up by the courier.
This was the last time the prospective buyer had any contact with her.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppersvic.com.au online.
