I posted an ad on Gumtree to sell a car and got a reply fairly quickly asking questions and reuesting my email address. This person has sent emails consistently to arrange the sale and told me to take my ad off Gumtree. I even received 2 emails from "Westpac" about the bank transfer that I should receive as payment which required me to forward $1000 onto the courier pick-up agent.

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.
