I advertised a guitar for sale on Gumtree and got an immediate response. He asked for more details then sent the email below.

I checked on the net for Paypal scams. This took me to the scamdex website and there was the email reply word for word with only the amount different.

Ok just wanted to make sure nothing is been left out.
I will be purchasing this for $500. Payment will be sent using PayPal and i will handle the PayPal surcharge as well. I will arrange with someone to have this picked up for your location once i have paid as i am out of town at the moment.In the meantime, can you send me more pictures (if available)?
Regards,

Williams
