Requested that I email him best final price and photographs re: a car advert on Gumtree. The text looked authentic, but it was the fact that he asked for final price without looking at the car that alerted me. I now check all text requests regarding car adverts whether they look dodgy or not. Glad I did, because this guy has shown up here before!
