My car is for sale on Gumtree, received a text via the Booksy service "Hello, I am inquiring about the car listed for sale? Kindly get back to me with details on my personal email only on firstname.lastname@example.org" I sent an email thanking him for his enquiry and asking what details he wanted and got the following reply... going down the same route as the emails on this thread, and others.
Hello, Thanks for getting back to me on time , i will like to make a deal with you so I m just asking about it to make sure its in perfect condition, Hope i will not be disappointed? and in regards to the delivery there is no shipment involved from your end as i have a freight agent that will come for it. I can only pay you via one of the fastest and secure way to pay online which is via paypal and on the contrary i can also transfer from my paypal directly to your bank account. You need to get back to me with your paypal email or bank details such as account name, account number and the sort code. kindly let me know asap so i can arrange the payment through Paypal Many Thanks

trying to sell my car on gumtree and he claimed he was offshore and wanted my bank/paypal details to transfer money.. he said it was for his son and said he will pay extra just to take down the ad. He said he will pay me immediately if i give my pay pal details. Thought it was too good to be true and searched his name up and he is a known scammer. Please be careful never give your pay pal or bank details.
