A month ago i advertised a Hyundai coupe on gumtree Australia for $4200 today friday 4th march i recieved a text message saying...Hi seller, is the listed item on gumtree still for sale ? pls get back to me via email (saustin5400@gmail.com) email only. I responded via email with a short note stating car was still for sale. I imediatly became suspicious with his reply and began googling gumtree scams which bought me here to this sight. Sure enough the same scams with same stories from these idiots trying to rip us off grrr
