 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Wallis
Email Address:
   keithwn@outlook.com
The scammer sent me a message via "Gumtree" asking if an item was still for sale - if it was, the message asked to email keithwn@outlook.com with confirmation - upon doing so, the email reply I received is as below. The conversation went back and forth about details of paypal email address and it seemed legit, until I received the payment confirmation email from Paypal in my Spam folder - a phishing attempt done fairly well but failed because my spam caught it.
