Scammer contacted me after I placed advert for mobile phone on Gumtree. He offered to pay extra £20 for postage. He asked me to send him Paypal invoice which I did. No money received through Paypal, so I didn\'t wanted to send the item. I received two fake emails which were supposed to look like they\'re from Paypal, one of which said that I\'ll be charged £2000 if I didn\'t post the item and provide tracking number to buyer. He started saying, that I need to give him tracking number of the item and then Paypal tranfers money into my account and that he wouldn\'t be able get the money back. I wouldn\'t post and told him to get lost.
