    Yeah! if someone asks you to pay money upfront there is a good chance they are trying to scam you. In this case, you knew the pics. If you think about it is a numbers game to these losers. If they try to scam 20 people and end up scamming 1 person that is 500$ in one day. It is enough to sustain them and keep doing what they are doing sad reality. Can you post the profile of this person? We will add it to our database, and once the extension is live you can report these profiles directly from the browser.

      Obviously be careful for people selling animals and something else on different groups. Never pay the full amount as many are scams, one of them being Nica Janse van Rensburg! I paid her R800 on 5 October. She never followed up on my order. I asked her what is happening. Always another story. Promised me a pay back, not paying everything back! 😥
