Scam text message after details sourced from Gumtree

Sent a text message in response to an ad up on Gumtree selling some basic furniture. The message goes... "Do you still have the Gumtree Furniture for sale? kindly reply to (macsmith202@gmail.com) plz no text."
This seemed odd, so I did a little googling on the email address and bingo; a known scammer who has targeted people before claiming to be offshore in NZ. This is an oldie, ...can you pls send your PayPal details and the person wants to buy from you without any checks. Can't believe people still pull this one, it's so 2010. Also reported this mobile number to Gumtree with a suspected scam report.
