  Information
Name:

I received this text message after listing my car on gumtree:

\"Sent from: David
I will like to know if your car is still available and to know the
firm price, please get back to me on davmark345@gmail.com\"

I searched the details and found all the other cases listed here so I just reported the number to the Australian Government scam site and didn\'t reply. I am in Victoria, Australia.

The car had been listed for a while but this happened straight after I edited it and bumped it to the top ($1.99) which may have drawn the attention of the person/bot running it, don\'t know it is a linked occurrence or just chance but worth mentioning.
