My girlfriend was trying to sell my Nintendo ds on gumtree and she had emailed her..
She said She wants the item hopping to Nigeria and she will give my girlfriend £80 for p&p
Via PayPal or bank transfere. She was about to go ahead with it until I did a google search of Amanda stackhouse gumtree
Which lead me to this web sight where I seen this post

Scam Details Says a transaction has been made over Gumtree through Paypal. Asks you to ship the item to NIGERIA through recorded first class for £80. Multiple \'Paypal\' confirmation emails are sent and you are informed that the transaction cannot be complete until you have sent the item and entered the \'Tracking\' number. there is no such thing - report it to paypal and gumtree, make as \'phishing scam\'.
So I am reporting her as she is clearly using a different email address to try to continually scam people.
