Nigerian Gumtree scam

I posted an add on gumtree to sell my laptop. 30 minutes later there are 10 sms's on my phone, all from Nigerian scammers who want to buy the laptop for their sisters, brothers, wives, schools etc. Everyone wants to pay via eft or moneygram. number 0789865984

Dont sell your items to any nigerians on Gumtree or the internet, you will not receive your money.
