Considering the username for the classifieds is 'gypsybitch', he called me sir

What is with the highlighted bit its not even proper english, its like a forigner is trying to speak english

It is very weird where they dont mention ENGLAND just YOUR COUNTRY

I dont know how people fall for these scams
