| Gumtree Scam I recently posted an ad on gumtree selling my car. I was contacted via text message first asking me to contact the person through email. The strange part was that the name who sent the message came up as Scott (I don't have any in my contact list) but his email was firstname.lastname@example.org .... a few hours later I received another text message reading exactly the same except it came from John with an email of email@example.com |
