An SMS regarding my Gumtree ad.
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Kenny
Email Address:
   kennyman001@gmail.com
After posting an ad on Gumtree I received (almost immediately) this SMS: Hi, am interested in your vehicle.Pls confirm the price/availabity to my email address: kennyman001@gmail.com. pls no sms bcos I won\'t b able to read it.

After emailing Kenny he asked for my PayPal details. I then did a scam search and found that Kenny was a well known scammer and would go on to ask for a money transfer for shipping. I dodged this scammer and hope everyone else manages to as well.
