Anyone used Gumtree and within mins get spam calls???

Posted 24th Jan 2019
Hi in the last week I listed 4 things on Gumtree, with 2 mins of listing a new item each time I get pestered by people, usually foreign, claimimng to be from insurance claims companies offering me compensation. Surely this isnt a co-incidence and wonder if anyone else had the same issue when listing with gumtree?
When i call them out for being scammers i usually get a torrent of abuse, so now i play a game with them and be really sarcastic and thank them for the advance warning of my car accident or ask them to hold while i answer the door!
I mean my job ain't the best but doing this for a living , trying to scam people all day every day, must erode your humanity.
