\'U still have the phone for sale What's your best price? contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org\'
Although I did not respond to the contact, I did become aware of the scam via a similar reply to the same advert, as I will list in another Tip-Off on this website.
Be weary: as you can see from the telephone number, you cannot reply to it. It is not a short code, nor is it an international mobile number, but rather a masked number sent from a bulk messaging system or a SMS gateway. Be weary if you cannot contact the person directly. I also found that I asked if any buyers would TEXT before calling. The fact that they could not contact me, or mention where they saw the advert, raised suspicions.
