Came across this on Scumtree: https://www.gumtree.co.za/a-sports-fitn ... pp_android

Looks really suspect, if somebody knows of someone that could have had gear stolen recently, could be worthwhile passing on the info.

Otherwise someone could get a fantastic deal

Could be a foreign tourist that bought them from us for a Rocklands holiday and is now on their way home....
Difficult and expensive to fly with pads.

Right, so after re looking at the ad and giving myself a klap on the back of the head. I saw the word each.

I guess this is what you get for not looking closely enough at the body of the message.

Justin please delete this post if you do not mind.

Apologies for false accusations to anyone that might of been effected

Hey Richard,
Thanks for being vigilant and making the post, a lot of misappropriated items are moved via Gumtree.
I'll delete it late tomorrow
