The same thing just happened to me today with the exact wording in the text and then email.
I didn't have my car advertised on Gumtree only in a local paper.

I had listed my car for sale on Gumtree & received an immediate text message to email this guy so I did & this was his phoney reply: I am only interested in a face to face transaction sorry. Good luck with the hunt for a car.
