    You can't be serious, really? Run this way >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    its a scam dude dont be silly. they even offer you double sometimes to tempt u into the sale/fraud

    I would not do it. I had a similar experience on Gumtree where a "girl" said she was on a ship and wanted to buy my item and pay by paypal and ship it to somewhere in the UK. I asked can she not pay by BT, and she said no, as she was on a ship she had no internet access, so I asked how she saw my ad and how she intended to pay by paypal, heard no more.
    BT is the only guaranteed safe bet for payment.
