    Hi all, just a warning to anyone thinking of buying from Gumtree. Be very cautious with who u send ur money to. I saw a kayak for sale on Gumtree and after a few suspicious email replies i done a search for the email address (sarah75harlow@gmail.com) i was replying to and found this -> http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/07747192044/2
    And i immediately stopped contact with it, although i replied to another ad for and got the same reply down to the last letter only from a different seller/email address.
    Here it is:

    Don't know if it's been long since you've emailed, I've been out so couldn't follow up on my text message. Can't promise anything but visiting my mum shortly, wouldn't mind making a drop off :) .
    If you'll send me your postcode I can check out on my satnav the distance to yours.
    Reasonable price and accurate description, it's worth the money, no bad surprises. I won't go any lower.Can be reached on (0)7973 425052 low signal strength area :( but check emails regularly.Ta,
    P.S. Will take cash only.
