I've had almost the same emails after responding to a Text Message that came from NO Number just "ADD" after I posted and advert yesterday evening for a mobile phone on Gumtree.
Email said "Please consider it sold and take the ads down. I am interested in buying it right off and am ready to pay your full asking price, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it and i will be glad if you can get back to me fast,sadly i won't be able to come for the inspection and pick up due to my disabilities,i loss my hearing and being on a wheelchair but I have a courier agent that will help me to pick it up at your preferred location .
Regarding the payment i can only pay via PayPal at the moment and I will be responsible for all the PayPal fee/charges on this transaction kindly get back to me with your PayPal email and the pick up location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now."
Just a heads up, there is a new one:
Don't do that, they have been known to add your email address to some 'nasty' websites.
Been ongoing for the 10 years that i have been posting on these boards.
Scammers are not going to stop whilst folks are still falling for the scams unfortunately.
