I advertised a drone on Gumtree Australia and received a text from Katty Moore with the sender coming up as Gummie.
No message received via the actual Gumtree system. Her text asked me to contact her on email kattymoore31@gumtree.com
No phone number / withheld number from the text message.
Sent her an email to confirm my suspicion this is a scam and this was her reply -

Thanks for your swift response. Have gone through your advert on Gumtree and I'm well pleased with all you've stated.In regards to the price it sounds okay.Happy to proceed with the purchase..i want it sent to my cousin Abroad as a surprise gift through EMS Express (Australia International Post Express) I estimated the shipping cost which is about $150 to ship it over to my cousin. I won't be able to come for check up due to the nature of my work,I'm an oceanographer presently working off shore at the moment.Have tried calling but the network so bad for weeks now.Regarding payment method,If you have paypal account, you can send me your paypal email address,or alternatively send me your bank details,my merchant paypal account can transfer to any of both account without delay.

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.
