I saw this on your website and I've just had exactly the same e-mail after advertising on Gumtree::

THIS EMAIL WAS RECEIVED AFTER A TEXT MESSAGE TO MY ADD ON GUMTREE. THE TEXT MESSAGE GAVE THE EMAIL ADDRESS BELOW. I WAS SUSPICIOUS JUST WITH THE TEXT.

Regarding the payment I can only pay via PayPal at the moment and I will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and the pick up location so that I can inform the courier agent about it now? Awaiting your reply soon... - See more at: http://www.scamdex.com/ScamTipReports/23863#sthash.79dQcfrx.dpuf

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
