    Thank you for your report. More people should report people who are fruadulant especially on gumtree. I also advertised a samsung tablet yesterday and this guy Gay responded. Told me he lived in saldanah and wants me to come to CBD to let a friend of him view it and then do an eft if the friend is happy with the tablet. I became a bit suspicous after he said he can't meet me and does not pay cash. You have saved me a bigg loss. Thank you for your report.

    Thanks to this report I have managed to avoid Gary Twala even though I insist on cash payment. The poor guy was even worried he would get robbed if he came to my area.
