Sent an SMS requesting I reply to his email address(email@example.com) in reply to ad on Gumtree - the sms cannot be phoned. Upon sending the email he replied from email address firstname.lastname@example.org (jones jokky).
Kept asking about PayPal, and ignored my requests for mobile number to verify he is a real buyer. Also didn't want to do cash for sale.
This is the text from his email: "Okay, i'm willing to know the final price for the item and also willing to pay you via the fastest and secure way to pay online(PayPal), so you can now send me your PayPal email so that i can pay you right away and also include your address in your reply."
And again: "If you don't have a paypal account, you can easily set up one and setting up a paypal account doesn't take more than 5 minutes...just log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up. its very easy.I await your reply asap"
