|Email Addressemail@example.com ⇒|
The person first texted me about my listings on gumtree from an unlisted number and was asked to email at firstname.lastname@example.org. When I emailed him he made enquiries which sounded genuine.
I didn't feel it was genuine when I got a reply from him today. This is what it read:
3 seater recliner - 300 quid
Table and 4 chairs - 40 quid i want this
Thanks for your mail and am satisfy with the add and the listed price, I am ready to buy it now for my son as a surprise promise gift,And due to the nature of my work,phone calls making and visiting of website are restricted but i squeezed out time to check this advert and send you an email regarding it.i would be glad to pay for it as soon as possible though i will not be available to come for an inspection due to my tight schedule.Kindly get back to me with the following questions below:

I would be glad to make the payment immediately through PayPal so kindly get back to me with your PayPal ID.
