I saw this on your website and I've just had exactly the same e-mail after advertising on Gumtree::

THIS EMAIL WAS RECEIVED AFTER A TEXT MESSAGE TO MY ADD ON GUMTREE. THE TEXT MESSAGE GAVE THE EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW. I WAS SUSPICIOUS JUST WITH THE TEXT.

Regarding the payment I can only pay via PayPal at the moment and I will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and the pick up location so that I can inform the courier agent about it now? Awaiting your reply soon... - See more at: http://www.scamdex.com/ScamTipReports/23863#sthash.79dQcfrx.dpuf
