Gumtree - selling a Treadmill. Steven contacted me via e-mail, offering more than the asking price! And to provide paypal details, he would arrange for courier. Never provided any personal information, never asked anything about the item I was selling. Was just really keen to obtain my paypal details.

Offered to pay full price + PayPal charge for a boat I have for sale, even though the cost of transport from Australia to Malaysia could potentially exceed the value of the boat. Looks like a Chargeback fraud to me!
