Gumtree - would you trust them?!
So I'm selling some stuff through Gumtree at the moment, one of which is up for £500. I've just had someone called Captain Gerrard (who seems to have three different Hotmail addresses so far) email me and ask to confirm the price - it's not you is it Gerrardasnails?! Anyway, I'm assuming he wants to offer me less, so I reply saying it's £500 and not looking to take any less than this for the moment.
I then get a mail back saying he'll pay me £700 including postage and package and PayPal fees, but we must use PayPal as it protects buyer and seller. Now, maybe it's just me, but I'm kind of smelling a rat here(!) so I've just replied to say sorry, no, local pickup only.
Am I mad, or am I sensible?!
