No. I don't trust things that are sold on Gumtree as there are too many scammers out there. My husband sold a Bantam bakkie about a year ago on Gumtree and was almost involved in a hijacking because of this. The message he got from the scammers made me concerned as they wanted him to meet up at a Fuel Station where he then has to pick them up and take them to the bank to withdraw the money to purchase the vehicle. I was tossing and turning the evening before he had to go and decided to google the message that they sent him and truth behold found a couple of similar messages with the same names of the guys being used where they hijacked the seller of the vehicle. It is one of the most unsafe sites to sell or buy anything. I don't even search there for anything anymore.
