Scammer alert

Be careful of a chap called Barend, he also uses a name of a game lodge in the Freestate as his heading. He sent me generic pics of a prop from the web, he then said he is in Jeffries bay. My Boet lives there, I said I’ll send my Boet to view. He suddenly lived in Port Alfred, I said I’ll send a mechanic from 43 to view the prop. It was then that he disappeared. All numbers off.
