Fake Gumtree user. Scammer

Email: bobbyjackson031970@gmail.com

I am interested in buying this for my cousin as a surprise for him, if only you can assure me that everything is in order. I am a petroleum engineer currently on a rig offshore, I want this to be a surprise for my cousin so I won't let him know anything about this until it gets delivered to him. It will be a secure payment via Skrill as I'm on a rig offshore. So let me know if you have an account with Skrill so I can arrange for the payment asap. Please note, a pick up agent will be coming for the pickup as soon as I have made the payment.

When you run the cell number he smsed me on : +27 (61) 362-6486
It shows through true caller as Aupa.

Definitely a scam. He is trying to walk away with a bicycle I’m selling and probably wouldn’t pay or reverse payment.
