TBH, if I was selling and got an email from overseas, saying they were a "REAL" cash buyer, quoting some obscure licensed dealer number like it meant something to the average Aussie seller, I'd probably delete it too.

Gumtree is meant to be for local transactions, it says it in five places on its welcome page. Gumtree is owned by e-bay which is intended to be more global. In Australia (at least) Gumtree is utterly rife with scammers, so part of their recommendations for not being ripped off is that you only deal face-to-face. Ebay offers other protections that Gumtree doesn't have.
