  Information
My advice regards getting those texts from scammers when selling something online, DO NOT list your mobile number , they have the internet to see your ad , they can send you a quick message via Gumtree ( or whatever website its listed on) , then you can give them your number after you are fairly sure they are legit. I got 2 different web texts or text via internet to my phone number last year when selling my boat on Gumtree one from Mick, the other from Laura...... but they target all sorts of websites, like car sales, bike sales etc.

Believe Gumtree & the like should have a warning on their homepage about scammers being active , it should be easily seen ie no need to search for it & directed to another page.
