I advertised a sofa on gumtree giving my mobile number for contact. I received a text asking if the ITEM was still for sale and to reply by email to richardporterxx1@gmail.com. I did and he said he wanted to buy the sofa for someone special and if I gave him my paypal Id and address he would arrange courier after I had received the money. I asked him if it would help if I could deliver the sofa and that was the last I heard of him. He was very apologetic and hoped that I was a god fearing person and would be ok with his set up. His email started with hello how was your day and thanks to god.
