  Information
Name:

This person emails regarding what you have advertised and claims he can\'t ring but is dead keen to buy your item, then proceeds to ask for your bank account details or your \"paypal email address\" [what is that, anyway?]

If you are selling something on Gumtree, eBay or whatever, you normally include your contact number. Be suspicious of ANYONE who does not want to ring you - What are they hiding? NEVER divulge your bank account details or any other personal information online.
