Two men take off in woman’s car after she places ad on Gumtree

Two men have taken off with a Melton woman’s car after they answered her ad on Gumtree.

Robert Attard told Neil Mitchell two men turned up to his daughter Kayla’s place last week and asked to test drive the car.

“Basically she put her car up for sale, she got a call Tuesday morning from a guy who wanted to come have a look at it,” Robert said.

“He turned up with a friend, he gave us a call and said he was outside.

“They decided they wanted to take it for a test drive, as they normally do.

“I was waiting for them to come back and then the car that they rolled up in had disappeared.”
