Details of Scam Report
I was selling a car on Gumtree and received an SMS from this number and Paul Datford. I thought it was suspicious that he didnt reply via email through Gumtree and wanted me to email him at his gmail address. So I did and then I received the following reply that I then knew was a scam and then doubled checked by google and found this great website that reports scams. Keep up the good work.

Scam Email
Gumtree website, scammer sent an SMS asking me to email him directly whereas he could have emailed me back via Gumtree (therefore not disclosing mine or his email addresses) so this behaviour made me suspicious. I assume the scammer thinks that by suggesting payment via paypal that people then trust them, but I assume the scam is about getting me to pay the courier fee and that is what they are after.
