I listed an advert on Gumtree for some furniture. Got a text asking me to reply via email. I sent an email to the address and got the following reply. Thought it was sus and googled the email address and it came up on Scamalot so thought I would add to this site as it helped me validate my suspicions.

I got a text message first but no mobile number showed up.
The email came from - Theresa Benson.

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.
