This person offered to purchase an item I have advertised on Gumtree. I provided my bank details not knowing that this may be a scam and have not heard from this person since. Will be contacting my bank to keep a check on my account.

Emails people on Gumtree saying hes interested in an item, says he will need the item overseas and use a courier company, then asks for your bank details without responding afterwards. Has the ability to text message for inital contact but doesn't send number with message.
