I'm not a Gumtree user but do use Marketplace where all initial contact is via site messages. I never reveal my telephone number until I am satisfied that I have someone Kosher in touch with me.
Even then it isn't absolutely foolproof.
I must say that the phone calls about my accident.......somebody hit my car 5 years ago......are becoming wearysome. Even telling them to "go away" is giving me no satisfaction.
