I had a vehicle for sale on Gumtree with my mobile number as a contact. This person text me with an email address they wanted to correspond through and below is the email trail(start from bottom up). I began getting suspicious when they wanted me to pay money to a Western Union account before PayPal (apparently) would release the funds for the vehicle to me. Emails sent via PayPal looked legitimate but obviously weren't. See below...............

I have since blocked this email address and told him that I will be reporting this scam. Sellers beware !!
