Please inform everybody you know this is a scam. I did forward this to friends, and they have contact the people, they were desperate and very excited about this beautiful bird but unfortunately the so called “sellers” insist money to be paid into there account before you can collect the parrot. They don’t want cash to be paid when you collect the bird.
Once deposit is paid in there account (to secure they keep the bird for you) then only will they sms or email you there address to collect the bird. Deposit is R2000-00.
