If you are looking for a second-hand camera – one that is particularly good at snapping fast cars – you are in luck. Or at least, you were.

The ad, posted by a person using the alias Haggis, briefly states: “Grey box camera. Collect it on the side of Albany Road.”

The advert posted on Gumtree shortly before 7pm on Thursday is titled “Grey Camera” and lists the sale price as R42 750 under the “Used electronics for sale in Port Elizabeth” category.

By 7.30pm, a screen grab of the post had been circulated by numerous people via WhatsApp.

Gumtree spokesman Estelle Nagel said they were unable to confirm the number of views on the advert but confirmed they had taken it down by late yesterday morning.

“We can confirm the poster has not had any takers on his offer.”
