    Hi all,

    Straight to it, there is a guy on Facebook by the name of Kobus Wild that's advertising hunts at **outstanding** rates. I'm making no accusations, but the suspicion among the locals is that it's a scam.

    He claims to be working out of Thabazimbi, issue being that he can't provide an exact details and the PH's that I know from the area have no idea who he is.

    Please be careful, if I am wrong I will most definitely apologise and retract the warning, just hoping to save any of the AH members from dodgy dealings and huge disappointment.

    Hope all are well, stay frosty.

    There is an old quote that is relevant here. "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
