Scam Alert

Scams Perpetrated in the Name of Members

It has been drawn to our attention that some people are being offered equipment from unknown third parties pretending to be members of the South Bristol ARC. If you have posted a wanted ad or been offered any equipment by someone claiming to be from this club please contact us before you transact any money to confirm the validity of the offer.

In general if equipment is being offered at a low price and especially if the transaction is trans-continental or the payment method is Western Union or Money Gram then consider it suspect.

I have managed to prevent one scam that was being perpetrated in a members name but know of one other who has fallen victim to confidence tricksters.

Please BE WARNED – Before you part with cash contact us to confirm
