Has been said many times here. Never give your cell as a contact medium. Sure way to get scammed!
Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

Hi

I was scammed a few weeks back by who I believe is the same person, with different alias. See below:

Looking for. GARMIN Radio for a Type Certified plane. If anyone has a spare they are wanting to sell, please contact me. 082 #### ##6


Was contacted by Gert Jacobs (082 591 1800) who had a GARMIN GTR225 radio, after upgrading to a GNC255. The radio was coming out of a C-182, which is also what I required it for. We agreed on a price and I would transfer the money into his account (Std bank ,10166221293 , tak 051001 Dankie Gert Jacobs). Once he had the funds he would send the radio (my mistake, but I rather trust people). Since transferring the funds, Gert no longer responds to any communication and has also not sent the radio. I just lost the money to replace my radio!
