Untitled Classified Ads Scam on Gumtree, #8655
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Jacob Collins
Email Address:

He texted me with a name (no number) asking for my \'firm price\'. When I queried him on which item through his email he gave me, he asked what I was selling. When I told him my 15 items, he asked for a total price. When I gave a separate price for each one, he again just asked for a total price. I gave him a total price of all and he has began pretending he wants to pay via PayPal - which is the early stage of SCAM reported on:
