Wants to buy my bike advitised in Gumtree
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Judy Bradley
Email Address:
   Judy Bradley
I put an ad to sell my motorbike and had a text from the above mobile asking for some details of the bike and an email address. The actual email was:
Thanks mate for ur email,l'm okay with ur asking price & conditions
l'm presently out of town on overseas but l wanted to buy it for my son
as a surprise birthday gift ,I won't be able to Inspect due to
the nature of my work overseas, would 've even love to call in person
but satellite server has been down which restrict calls, l hope you know how l feel?
What are your genuine reasons for selling it ? Do you have extra pics that
you can send me since l wont be able to come and inspect it ?

I've a courier pickup agent that will contact you for the pickup
after the payment has been credited through ur Paypal account but
l can only pay you via Paypal as l have no other means of paying you.
so all you have to do now is get back to me with your Paypal email or
send me an invoice so I can make the payment to you ASAP.
