I recently posted on Gumtree, instantly got a reply saying consider it sold.

Great I think, then as many of you will have probably experienced he was ill/handicapped buying for someone else and wanted it posted to Nigeria.

Insisted on paypal and sent more money than asked for but I needed to pay £270 on money gram to complete the paypal which I received a 98% completion email that looked pretty convincing.

Needless to say this is a very clever if obvious phishing scam so don't get sucked in, I didn't but the communications all look genuine so be careful out there.
