Car sale scam
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Martin Lauren
Email Address:
   martin.lauren85@yahoo.com
Text message shortly after I advertised my car on Gumtree. \"Hi Seller.Is this Car on gumtree is still up for Sale and What is the last price offer .Please email me on(martin.lauren85@yahoo.com)\" No callback number.

This is obviously a generic automatic response. I have had these before where they want you to deliver the car to their \"agent\" which is usually an unsuspecting transport company and they offer to pay through Pay Pal. Of course once the car is in transit they cancel the payment. Thanks for the free car!!
