EMAIL 2/2 ONLY. -gade
Obviously a scam..But honestly what do they think I am going to do? Send them money to New York for a car I am selling?? I have no idea why the crazies come out when you list something for sale. Like damn vultures.

Hey I entered a scam notification earlier about my car for sale and I got a suss text from Williams Kenny Scott with an Aussie mobile number. After that I had three identical texts (same day the car went up for sale) from a new generic name Charles Micheal and a US mobile number. 'Hello seller, is your listed item on gumtree still for sale?pls get back to me on (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your final asking price.' I'm not sure what this guy is up to but he's on the move. G
