Overpayment Scam
texting and emailing after I listed my car on Gumtree and Carsales.com

Like others, responded my ads on Gumtree. Email content word to word saying sending agent pick up the car. Then followed with wanting my paypal account details. I agreed to provide bank account details for him to send money, then he emailed me that he paid extra so I need to send money to a third party in UK. Also faked paypal email saying: have received his payment and will release the full fund once I paid money to that third party. Very strange, be careful everyone.
