someonehas requested an additonal email address

I have been contacted outside of my Gumtree account confirming a purchase of an item I am selling.  I have given them my paypal email and they have requested that I create a Yahoo to gmail account o get paid quicker.  Feel this may be a scam as they refused to direct deposit or Cash on pick up... claiming they can't make it to a bank.

Their exact message reads" Please regarding your PayPal email,sorry you will need an alternative email like Yahoo or hotmail account in order to be able to receive payment confirmation from PayPal as bigpond email delays payment..i have had problems with them in the past..just create a Yahoo or hotmail account and attach it to your PayPal account..let me know once you have done that please so that i can proceed with the payment and arrange for the pickup."

Anyone else experienced this?
