Lucky you as I also had a friend interested and the emails from the guy requested money first as he was out of the country and a shipping agent would look after the deal! He has reported this to Gumtree.

Yup thats what i thought , It just didn't seem right !

It's no longer on gumtree , so they must have been booted .

Last summer there was a spate of expensive campervans at silly prices .
