There is a Gumtree Scammer going by the name of Shane Mathews. Whenever you post a WANTED advertisement, when you are looking for a specific item, this guy will send you a sms (his no is 0760623179) and pretent that he owns a business in Uitenhage (probably not) and have old stock of the item you have and can give it to you at a low price. But the catch is his courier is leaving (co-incidentitally close to where you live) in a few hours and therefor he needs a cash send from wherever you bank. When asked for a invoice, he no longer has this items on the books and can't issue a invoice but he will gladly send a email from to your email stating what ever he is selling you typed out by himself. When asked for any other invoice to clarify him and his business exist, all other excuses was made. Luckily I didn't fall for his scam but want to post this incase anyone else becomes a victim!
