Like others, responded my ads on Gumtree. Email content word to word saying sending agent pick up the car. Then followed with wanting my paypal account details. I agreed to provide bank account details for him to send money, then he emailed me that he paid extra so I need to send money to a third party in UK. Also faked paypal email saying: have received his payment and will release the full fund once I paid money to that third party. Very strange, be careful everyone.
