\"Hi, I just want to confirm if your ads is still available for sale? Kindly reply me at my email at (Jayuootehy at hotmail.com)\"

I sent them an email: \"I currently have three advertisements. Which one are you interested in purchasing?\"


They replied: \"Thanks for the swift response...I am willing to know the lowest price of
it.due to the nature of my job and location...i will not be able to come

everyday,i have gone through your advertisement and i am satisfied with
it.As for the payment..i will be paying you via the fastest and secure

I was contacted by someone using these details after posting items for sale on the Gumtree website. I responded to the initial message and realised after the second response hat it was a scam so i have ignored it. This is what was sent to me....
From 'solexjay' to my mobile number:
I saw your ad on gumtree and want to buy it? Please contact me direct to my email: topefreehotmail.com Thanks
I replied (to the hotmail address) and asked which item they were enquiring about and got this reply.

At this point I suspected it was a scammer but replied again and asked which item they were interested in and got this reply....
okay, i mean i want to purchase all your item listed on gumtree, so how much is the total cost in all, so that i can be able to arrange payment right away if i may need most of them?
I have not responded and do not intend to. While I had no intention of making further contact I am happy to add this information and try to make sure other people do not get scammed. I just hope people check first before giving any details out to anyone...
