I advertised a phone for sale on Gumtree, soon afterwards got a text message from the number quoted asking me to email the devices condition at the email address quoted. Once that was done I then got another email back saying that he/she...

- was hearing impaired
- was unable to come to my place to view (away on business)
- wanted me to post the phone to his son in Norwich for his imminent birthday
- would paypal the money to me (offering nearly double the asking price)

I declined the offer unless it was a cash payment as this smelled very fishy to me.
