Just had a text message about an item I put on Gumtree and a bit suspicious as only said reply to email@example.com. So searched for on Goggle and found this site.

got an item on gumtree, and got a text just like the other scams listed. "I'm interested in your item listed on gumtree so send me the final price and address directly to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org)Pls email only"
Sounded strange from the start, everyone else also calls and asks condition and how long etc, never had anyone go straight in at final price!
Thanks for posting....just saved me a lot of bother....
