  Information
Name:
   Alex Bennet
Email Address:
   alexbennett090@gmail.com
I advertised a brand new iPhone on gumtree. He messaged me via gumtree asking to email him at alexbennett090@gmail.com if phone was still for sale and final asking price.
12 hours after I said yes still for sale etc, he emailed saying he wanted the phone for his daughter studying at university in China and for me to find out postage to China and to get back to him adap. That is when I got suspicious! Firstly, I'm sure there are stacks of iPhones to purchase in China, and secondly, no one I've ever dealt with on gumtree has asked me to go to the post office to find out cost of postage!!
I googled his email address and I saw a heap of warnings about that particular email address!!
Don't get caught out. Hope this helps.
