Hi, please do email me your firm asking price of your ad posted on gumtree with the pickup address for cash pickup right now

Then an email reply
Happy to read from you. Can you tell me more about it?, like history and why you would like to sell it.

I don't mind adding an extra $250.00 for you just to take down the posting and kindly inform other buyers it as been sold. I'm ready to purchase it as soon as possible. I will pay $105 AUD for the Australia delivery charges to my kid (TAS) and you will do posting once the payment is confirmed. REMOVE THE AD RIGHT NOW AND I WILL MAKE THE DEPOSIT OF $250 ASAP.

I would appreciate if you email me with more pictures (if available) since i won't be be able to see this in person, I'd be paying via PayPal transfer so kindly get back to me with your paypal details for payment, cheers.

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.
