Scammer alert

Unread post by Kevern Brown »

I’m looking for RV10 wingtips, a chap by the name of Erasmus tried to scam me on a set of Ziptips. Same chap who tried to scam me on a propellor for a radial. They always seem to be in Jeffries bay and surrounds. When you agree to view they change locations and disappear. Always urgent and seem to always want money without viewing.

Hi All,

Scammer is active. Tried to sell me a transponder... Great deal. Luckily it sounded too good to be true, so I asked for a video with him showing me the unit. Even made me a video (dubbed his voice over an Aussie YouTube of the Microair transponder). Looked edited, so I did some searching and found the link he used.

Screenshot of guy - 'Erasmusbk'. Is there a way of reporting him?

Cheers,

Marc
