I placed an ad on Gumtree today for an expensive piece of jewellery. I received a text from this number 02 4036 3188 asking me to reply by emailing email@example.com. I replied to the text and it was 'unable to send' and then I rang the number to inform the 'enquirer' that I do not discuss business over text messages or emails, and found the number was not connected. Thank you to this scamdex site for letting me know it is a scammer ..

Was contacted after posting a ring for sale on Gumtree. Received a txt saying " hello mate" & asking if the ring was still for sale, if so contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org . Didn't think they sounded legit but replied using my alternate email address. Lovely quick response stating it was for his daughter in law who has just been transferred to China so he would send her address so I could send directly to her & that he would only pay by Paypal because it was the best way for me to receive payment.
