Gumtree email Scammer Selling a Vehicle

Got an email while selling my car on Gumtree Aus. I went to town on him and reported him to ASIC.
His email address is [email protected]

His email to me stated to send him $1500 via BSB transfer and he would arrange for a courier company to pick up my car, then he would PayPal me the remaning $9,000 amount.
Im sure many elderly people have fallen for this scam, absolute arsehole.
I’ve had my fun with him.

Go for it gang!!

Email from him …
