Had two ads on Gumtree and smelt a rat with this response!

Had a couple of emails from the same address, no reply when I sent one back saying cash pick up only!

Buyer stated they were in Malaysia, when asked whereabouts overseas they were... would not give an address or even suburb in Oz!

Thanks for your swift reply. I am interested in the lot 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

I got this email from the same person - the person texted me first then said the following after I asked them which items they were interested in:
"Firstly, Could you please get back to me with the details of the items you have for sale on gumtree, i might be willing to buy the lot."
be aware!!!
