Got a text from this person, saying interested in item, asked which item, didn\'t reply but sent me some template:

Thanks for your swift reply. I am interested and I would have loved to come for viewing and inspection but i am currently overseas at the moment and i want this item picked up before i get back. Due to my inability to make a bank deposit, I would be paying via PayPal which is safer for me. Kindly send me a paypal payment invoice or create an account at www.paypal.com.au if you dont have one. Iwill make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you receive full payment into your PayPal account and if you have agreed to sell to me, kindly remove the listing on gumtree
Have a nice day.
Cheers

Asked again which item and said I preferred to deal face to face and didn\'t get a reply. Obviously a scammer.

Me too - the email I got is below using janemile1@gmail.com
Hello, Thanks for getting back to me, so sorry that i couldn't call you due to the nature of my work, the best way to get a hold of me is through this email, I am willing to go with your price for this item because i want a fast transaction and if you are pleased with my offer, i will be happy if you remove the ad from gumtree in other to show your commitment, I am presently in Oversea where i work based on job transfer. I will make a concrete pick up arrangement with my transport agent who will be coming over for pick up once you have received full payment.
I'd like to know certain things too before we discuss about payment; Are you the first owner of this item? Does it have any mechanical faults presently? What is your reason for selling? I'm sorry, just want to be sure about the sale before i proceed

Exactly as above. Text requesting an email with more information then exactly the same reply email requesting a PayPal invoice. Seemed really suss and bady written, so I googled the name and found this website.
