Scammer on gumtree after expensive jewellery

I was contacted through a text about my ads on gumtree. This text didnt allow me to respond as it had no number. So that was the first sign of it being a scammer. I was told to email them which I did as I am desperate and want to sell my items fast. They emailed me back but never specified what specific item they were referring to so i asked and they then said “oh your selling more than one, list them all for me”. I did that. And they responded saying they wanted the bvlgari ring ($800) and the tiffany and co necklace ($350). They then said i will get an email regarding the payment. This was in my spam folder. This is when I looked up the email to find this site which thankfully saved me being scammed.

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.
