Contacted via Gumtree and sent the below emails, looks like this guy has been at it for 6 years, do not alert him to this page as he will probably change email addresses. Hope this helps to stop him scamming people.
Hi,
Sorry i had to text you as am hearing impaired, I am very keen. How i wish i could come and have a look as am currently away with work at the moment and i will like you to help me post it to my son in Scotland,UK.
I want it as a birthday gift for him. I would like it posted via Royalmail next day delivery. I will cover postage cost. I will paying via Paypal/Bank transfer as advised by Gumtree.I don't know much about phones but if you can let me know your asking price then i think we should be able to sort something out.
Thanks

700 is fair, As i will also add extra 10 to cover next day delivery. Kindly send me your account name,account number and sort code so i can make payment or alternatively send me your Paypal email if you would prefer a paypal payment
Cheers Dave
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi,
I have just made the payment and also added £10 for postage, I would like you to help me ship the item Asap.I was told by Royalmail that the item can get to Dunfermline next day or so.
Meanwhile, I have received an email from Netbank that the funds have been deducted from my account and that it will be credited into your account once you advise them of the shipment tracking number. Kindly confirm this and help me get the item shipped out asap.
Below is the shipping address:
Ryan Dass 3 Edward St Dunfermline KY12 0JL, UK

This fellow wanted to buy a bass guitar from me via Gumtree (for his son). He claimed that he was on a ship and had left his credit card at home & could I pay his courier fees (£300)to a Chinese Agent (full details on file)who would then pay me my £100 via Paypal plus the £300.

He sent me a text telling me he was very keen regarding my gumtree add and could I email him to tell him about the condition of the item despite the fact I had described it in detail and posted several pictures on the add. I decided to humor him and emailed him anyway and he gave me a story about how he couldn't call me because he was hearing impaired and that it's his sons birthday in 3 days and he really wanted to give him the item I was selling but he was working out of the country so could I send it via post to his son in London and he would pay me by PayPal... Yeah right... I took it further and he said he would send me the money via PayPal and asked me for my email which I had already given him... A few minutes later I recieved 2 emails supposedly from PayPal into my junk mail box (which he told me would happen) the emails were so badly faked it was laughable, they said that Dave had sent the funds but they wouldn't be released to me until I sent an email with the shipment tracking number to pendpayments@accountant.com and then I would get the money. He then sent me an email with his "sons" address and asked if I could send the phone asap to which I politely declined.
