My add has been on gumtree and I received this text from gumtree (not from any number). "Dan will like to know if your listed vehicle Ad is still on for sale if yes Kindly get back to him with the condition and firm price on email@example.com"
So I sent the email to him confirming sale price and he replied. "Hi I am a marine engineer presently at Australia south sea right now. I'm ready to purchase it as soon as possible. Please do advise with your last price. I have a legitimate pick up agent that will come and pick it up after i have made the payment. I'd like to know certain things too. Are you the first owner of it and What is your reason for selling it? I will be very glad to conclude this as soon as possible. Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon.. Best regards"
