Suspected Scammer or proof me wrong.

Unread post by Folla »

Was asking about condor helmets and this Pieter answer me and ask where from and what size helmets I'm looking for.
My worry is, if you do have a condor helmet you will know one size fits all. there are adjustable straps inside.
I told him about the straps and no answer or photos from him.

Goes by Pieter on WhatsApp with nr, 0713693875 with agri solar system profile pic.
if I'm wrong apologies to Pieter but maybe save someone else with this.

That's a pretty good idea, by no means fool proof but would verify the item exists.

Mostly 3rd world business from my experience

For me it’s email, call, or for video FaceTime
