What can we learn from this?
It was not a ewallet payment Capitec
It was not a Avcom user The problem was the Cell no was given so anybody could respond.
A reversal will only happen it both party's agree

Sorry my friend. We should not trust anybody without verification. Facebook as reference maybe.

Thanks Heineman. I guess after all I have bought it was bound to be my turn. Lesson learnt and luckily it was not for thousands of bucks.

Nothing, the problem is listing your cell in the ad. That's what they latch onto and contact you directly. If it's via avcom pm system at least you can check a profile and if it's a new user or one with few posts exercise caution.
Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Then DO NOT give them Ammo to nail you with Do NOT give out your Cell number :evil: :evil: Use PM through Avcom to buy goods. Just be careful as it seems there are plenty of scammers out there. I wish we could catch these bugger and beat the crap into them as they are causing havoc here on Avcom.... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

i dndt know that. so if someone has my cel # they can get access to a capitec acc? Or is it only to do with an avcom tipe transaction where e wallet is used. Please educate me on this subject :)

I do get the idea of a PM being a little safer as not every scamster has direct access but I am sure some "legitimate" avcommers have aso scammed someone even using PM?

No capitec is perfectly safe.

If they have your cell then they can contact you directly via whatsapp, ie you have no way to measure who or how dependable he is.

Indeed. I spoke to the guy over the phone. Normal 55 ish Afrikaans oomie.

I think this is actually his name but he has gotten so cocky he does not even care anymore to hide.

Cant find the pic on google image search or his whatsapp pic that I saw initially on his whatsapp on Facebook.
