My daughter upgraded her phone last week. I put her old one (iPhone 7) on Gumtree.

Got a couple of responses, one that asked for a few more photos by email. I sent them.

They replied saying they would take it, could I post it, could I give them a quote including postage.

I worked out the postage cost, sent the final price, they agreed and said they would send the money by PayPal.

I got an email from PayPal, a nicely laid out invoice, saying that the money had been sent but wouldn't be released to me until I had provided the tracking code from posting the item.

I looked, couldn't work out how to provide the tracking code other than by email, checked the email address I had received it from, the display may have said paypal, but the address underneath most certainly wasn't. Quickly worked out the whole thing was a scam.

They've emailed today asking if I have posted the phone yet and asking for the tracking code.

So, what should I do next?

I know the address they want something sent to, I'm quite prepared to pay £7.40 sending them something.

Any ideas?
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
