I just received a reply to my Gumtree ad. I think it's a scam from [email protected]...

"Great! please consider it sold as i am willing to pay your full asking price because i actually want to buy it for a relative who is in need of it, i have read through the advert and i'm totally satisfied with it, sadly i would not be able to come personally to collect due to me being work offshore. I have a courier agent that would help me to pick it up at your preferred location after you have received your money and I'l pay you via PayPal today. Where is the pick up location so that i can inform the courier agent about it now?"

Don't know, but sounds like they want an address, email and paypal details to scam you.
