Was interested in my car for sale on gumtree, I got a text with a name for the number asking me to email him. Said he was at sea and wanted to buy my car for his holiday, had already talked to a courier to take it up to NT. said he had a business paypal account and wanted to pay me ASAP, Way too much info and didnt answer any questions, I got suspicious and looked into it, found this site....
