I am selling my car on Gumtree (Australia), listed early August. Received a text today from \"mat\" (no visible phone number). Quoted message:

I\'m interested in your vehicle, please what is your firm price& condt of it.Email me back ONLY at (mtmattaylor (at) gmail.com).

Sounded rather dodgy to me, so didn\'t even try replying, or sending an email for that matter. In stead, did a quick search and came across a nearly identical tip: http://www.scamdex.com/ScamTipReports/20586.
