email@example.com replied to my ad on fridayad. He asked what was my final price for the item. I replied with final price and he said his partner was dealing with the purchase. Partner firstname.lastname@example.org emailed me as the partner asking for my address for collection by courier and paypal account details to pay. He was urgent in responses and need to pay quickly. Also when I realised I had made a mistake in my ad he didn't care or query it. I googled his address and luckily saw this online. Thank you for posting this scam. I hope others see this too and do not get scammed.

I posted a bed and mattress for sale on gumtree. "Donny" replied asking for a final price. Then asked me for my full address and PayPal details and then would send a courier.
I told "him" that it seems dodgy and heard nothing since. The language of the emails he sent didn't flow like it would if it were an English speaker typing them
