Posted an ad on gumtree.
Received a text on the phone number I had listed as a contact number. It read:
\"Hi mate, I found your post on Gumtree. Please write me back on nswmarsarno at if you still have the....\"
I emailed them asking what they wanted to know and they replied with:

\"Okay, Let me know if the price is negotiable. I am from Cape Byron,
New South Wales and I can see that you are not local so I will just
give you my daughter address to send it to her directly she just got
transferred to China with her fiance. My only option right now will be
paypal. because I prefer to use paypal for most online transactions,
You can easily get money in your paypal and transfer it into your bank
account let me know how much you want me to pay for it I mean whats
the least you can go?\"

Immediately knew it was a scam. Don\'t waste your time with this person.
