Response to Gumtree ad offering to pay via Paypal
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Clement (Clem) James
Email Address:
   clemjames48@yahoo.com
I posted an ad on Gumtree late last night & early this morning I started receiving SMSs from a range of people (including this person) requesting the price of the item (without stating which item they were interested in) ASAP via email.

Some of the SMSs also state that the person will make payment via Paypal.

Generally the person also stated that they are unable to view the item as they are overseas on business etc.

\"Just viewed your ad. It is still available? What\'s the final asking price? Kindly reply me direct to my email: clemjames48@yahoo.com.\"
