Howzit guys. Just to reiterate Justin's post and let all know to be careful of this so called " Pieter Viljoen". I got scammed of R2000 from this guy. same modus operandi as other post. Offers gear for sale - send photos - you make EFT - and he becomes uncontactable. If anyone knows anything about this character please let me know so I can lay a criminal charge against him.

While searching for a flat on gumtree you will run into loads of scammers. Try doing a reverse image search on google, because scammers use pictures off the internet, since they don't actually own the gear.

never pay money to strangers. never ever. CoD or otherwise no deal. so many scammers out there......
(perhaps that's also why Facebook marketplace is taking off: buy from an established profile with mutual friends gives some level of vetting)
