I just wanted to thank you, flatyre, for writing this warning which just prevented me from getting scammed by 'Greg Cambel' on Gumtree. THANK YOU!! I smelled a rat and just Googled his name and your message popped up. I read it in full and my God it is virtually identical to the emails I received. Same PayPal request, same Western Union request payment etc... Oh boy.
It's bad because he stated he was wheelchair bound with hearing problems so he is playing on my sympathy in order to con me out of my money. I hope you didn't get cheated but thank you for warning others!
