Trying to sell a car on several websites, received a text from someone asking to email more information to kkloww@hotmail.com, got a reply from a different email address jaycool1970@gmail.com, reply below
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 for inspection,am a very busy type as i work long hours everyday,I am already in talks with the courier that will handle the pick up and delivery to my family . As regards the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit,using Royal Bank Of Canada Instant wire transfer service, I will need your bank details.If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a paypal account proper at www.paypal.com.au and I will make the payment through paypal, this way, all I will need is your paypal email address,so i can proceed with the payment and contact the courier agent who will come to pick it up and deliver it in my place.
Regards, Thanks.
Very glad sites like this are available so I didn't fall for it!

Just did a google search on his name because it seemed a VERY dogdy that he couldn't say which item he wanted. So i did a google search and found this page and another Scammer Warning site which explains what he's trying to do - it's a Western Union scam.. details seem to be quite clearly explained in this description of the scam

BTW,
What Im tempted to do is post another ad in Gumtree to bait this scammer, then give them the address of the vacant house across the street and when they show up to collect the stuff, run across the street and kick the living crap out of them.
