I put some furniture on Gumtree and received the following text almost immediately:
"Is your furniture still available for sale? Please email me with your best last price"
Remarkably similar to other posts on this site. He/she(?) also mentioned in subsequent emails that he was unable to view personally but would pay more for me to secure the sale and remove from the listings. Again, all too familiar???
Many thanks to this site for bringing this character to my attention

Contacted me by email to buy a suite I had advertised on gum tree. Offered me an additional £50 to not sell. Couldn't come see it himself as he was ' at sea'. Said he would pay the courier to collect. Said he would pay through PayPal. Got 2 emails from 'paypal' purporting to have received money for my account but holding it until I transferred to the courier-A Michael Dooley. I phoned paypal. They never sent me emails and no money pending in my account. Quite sophisticated scam
