    Default RV5 tent scammer at large on the 2nd hand sites

    Guys

    Be careful there is a very talented scammer hitting the 2nd hand sites at the moment offering Oztent RV5 tent.

    Spins a very realistic story.

    Just be aware, that all.

    Seems to follow the same sort of details in the advert.

    Purchased not long ago, used 2-3 times, too heavy, purchased trailer tent.

    Mostly includes extras, side panels, tagalong tent, stretchers, not all , but an incentive.

    Price looks like a good deal, not stupidly cheap.

    Spins yarn that busy today (my conversation was his last daughter was getting married), but everyone is calling for it. Doesn't suggest deposit, but will ask for ewallet payment to secure it if conversation goes that way

    Always a member joined on that day, and his whatsapp number live on the same day as the ad.

    Numerous names, numerous cell numbers that go dead.

    Seems to like to return your inquiry to him with , 'you may call me, .....'

    Please open a case with the SAPS regarding this.

    Easiest with Chrome browser, just right click on a picture and click on "Search Google for image" to do a search on the picture.

    Only advice is "never ever pay a holding deposit for anything", a normal person will either say "sorry, it's already sold to someone else" or "sure, come check it at blah blah blah". The scammer is using your fear on "losing out on the deal" to scam you.
