Experience: Very Bad Guys be Careful , this guy is as friendly as Hell over the phone :MO He is not a business man so make me an offer, Split payments to Bank and Cash Transfer . To me he was Gordon Harris Cell Used: 0639860389 Address given 52 5th Ave Walmer PE
I am the: Buyer
Brief background: He Had 2 Jetcat turbines for sale , I was interested in the P20 (Please if you bought the P80 Please come forward) or other items
As usual price was to good to pass , but usually if it is your being scammed. I`m the Sucker this time: He also had some other adds
Things to look for: His photos were very Bury and his responses were short and not forthcoming with answers around items: Also the times he responds to watsaps are at 2 am and 4:30 am , rarely in daytime. White Guy & Speaks perfect English with a English accent sound like an older chap 50-60 years old.
Link to advert: Add was Deleted and his Profile seems to be gone
Is the buyer/seller aware of the issue:Yes
Has the buyer/seller attempted to remedy the issue: Yes . His Cell goes straight to voicemail now ad has not read any watsaps
I agree to send a link to this post to the other party upon completion: Yes
My real name:Gert

Caught me last week also. Took me for R1200. MrB replied to one of my WTB posts, very convincing, good pictures and details provided. Shipping agreed, but never arrived. As typical, user has obviously blocked me on his phone and on avcom PM.

Guys, be careful out there. If someone contacts you regarding an advert or parts, do a quick search on his username - I should have done this and would have saved R1200!

MrB - Watch your back -your time will run out soon!
the sky is the limit.
