Likely classifieds scam - asked to email in a text from 0017146942771 
Janice Cullen
Email Address:
I posted an ad on Gumtree last night. I\'d done this once before, but unlike on the first (unsuccessful) ad a month or so back, I included my phone number on this second one. I woke up to a text from 0017146942771, asking me to email with my \"final price.\"

I thought that was a bit strange because: a) I\'d included the price in the ad, b) the phone number looked international, c) they hadn\'t emailed the address in the ad, even though they seemed to want to communicate that way, and d) the structure of the message was... odd.

Once I saw a few hits for that email address in Scamdex, I thought it best to assume the whole thing wasn\'t a legitimate enquiry.
