My advertisment on Gumtree tried to get my PayPal details by creating a false PayPal web link 
Jason Penderson
Email Address:
He was interested purchasing my husbands motorbike, he told me that he worked on a rig off-shore and couldnt come to view the bike but liked what he saw and that the money wasnt a problem. He wanted me to give him my paypal details so that he could pay for the bike and send a courier. The email that was sent to me looked like paypal but it wasnt, paypal address you not your email address, and he wanted me to click on the link, i didnt do that as I was getting a bit suspicious because once he had my email address for paypal his email address became unobtainable!! Action Fraud and Kent Police have been notified.
