Shortly after I advertised my vehicle on Gumtree site I get an sms message from \'paul\'requesting to contact him via email.Here is the text : MATE,IS YOUR CAR ADVERT STILL AVAILABLE? PLS GET BACK TO ME WITH YOUR FIRM PRICE ON PAULLINCOLN1970@GMAIL.COM AS MY PHONE LINE IS PRESENTLY SCRAMBLED.CHEERS.

No details shown on my mobile.This triggered a suspicious person to me, however I sent him an email confirming what I had already stated in the ad.This person claims to be offshore on some New Zealand Oil and Gas project.....Taranaki.
