Sent text after I advertised on Gumtree saying to email their mother with my best price. They provided the email

This phone text us on 10/11/2020 after we advertise our car on gumtree . He said Adrian will like to know if your car still on for sale ? Pls email him on (dennadrian1993 @ gmail.com) Email Only.
In the email , he said he is very busy and is on the road and cannot be contacted . He is buying a car as a gift for his cousin as a Christmas present .He would like our bank details or even better our PayPal account . He has booked courier and will pay extra $200 if we close our advertisement.
Sounds to good to be true ! Big scammer . Be aware and do not give out your bank details or any personal information .
Text due to an ad I placed on Gumtree - did not use my name, called their mother 'mom', poor use of English. Asked to respond via email: brycerose0147 @ gmail.com. Definite scammer. Caller: Supposedly Jess Russell

Selling a CCTV system on gumtree got a text message saying Hello Seller, David will like to know if your listed item is still for sale? please kindly get back to him via email (davidcroftletua @ gmail.com) Email only. so I responded saying this item is available then I did a quick search on his email address and found this website the below is the response I got back from him
Thanks!!! for the response,I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work we do not have access to phone at the moment,which is why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.
I am buying this for my first son who just graduated on top of his class at Charles Darwin University in NT ,He studied Building Design & Architecture. I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for him and am making it a surprise package ,Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $300.00 for you just to take down the posting..I am already in talks with freigh that will handle the pickup and delivery .I will really appreciate if you can email more info

Gumtree scam: pretending to be “Rose Bryce” wanting my bank details via email. First contact is text asking for me to contact her “mom”. Luckily I had a number of items listed and so I queried it : they are clearly offshore scammers. Do not send them your bank details and block them ongoing.

Same as everyone else, advertised a bed on Gumtree, he sent a text saying only email and buying for his cousin for New Years and wanted our PayPal details and he would send a private courier to pick up the bed. Same as above, Gumtree scam sms regarding a bike ad.

(bad grammar included)
Caller: 0432 538 029
Same as everyone else, I received two texts on two consecutive days.

Got a text after posting an add on gumtree after 5mins.
Had to send his dad an email on an email address supplied.
Poor bloke was in hospital so a courier was coming to pick up the item posted on Gumtree and he would transfer all funds through PayPal.
Scum of the earth.
Same as others, vague sms message, searched google and arrived on this page, so now I know it's a scam. Text "Hello Seller, David will like to know if your listed item is still for sale? please kindly get back to him via email (davidcroftletua @ gmail.com) Email only." Caller: James R
Same as everyone else: was sent a text from this number after I placed an ad on Gumtree. Seemed very suspicious right from the start. Very likely a scam. Glad I checked. Don't respond. Be cautious.
I also received a text after posting an item on GumTree. They claimed their father was interested in something I was selling and supplied an email... lopatinsky0147 @ gmail.com using two different names that replied, Edward Ryan and David Silverstein. Have tried to scam me with a fake PayPal transfer.
