I was advertising some furniture on gumtree.com.au and received an sms from Stella (no phone number)
"Hello, is your furniture gown still for sale? advice on ur firm price with condition and email on stellaw2@outlook.com.au for quick response" which, due to the spelling and wording made me suspicious.
I then responded to the email with details of my items and received the email that was identical to the previously reported one. I then checked to see if it was a scam and found this page.
