Crime Date: 29 January 2015
Reported Date: 28 July 2015

Fraud

It has come to my attention that someone with the same name as me are out there since 2012 committing fraud in my name.  My Id was stolen a few years back and i am convinced this is ID fraud as i am alerted by ITC when someone does an inquiry on my as well.  This is very humiliating and embarrassing for me and my children as I am a grown up woman just living a normal life.  I cannot walk around and look over my shoulder all the time.  should anybody require my assistance please feel free to contact me.  We all know there are lots off scams out there but open your eyes before entering into any deal or transaction.  Regards

Fraud by Gumtree User

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 2 April 2015
Reported Date: 27 July 2015

Fraud by Gumtree User

Gumtree user "ASAIF" advertised a property to rent in Bardene, Boksburg which he claimed he owned.  I went to look at the place on 2 April 2015, and he said that he had a lot of potential renters so I need to pay the deposit of R12 900 asap if I want it.  I paid the deposit the morning of 3 April 2015 (he advised that it should be paid into his wife's account).  Two weeks later he phoned me asking if I want to buy the property because he had a cash buyer.  I then declined the proposal and requested my deposit to be refunded.

After some research I found that the property went on auction by the bank two weeks after I paid the deposit. 

Initially, after involving legal representation, he forwarded me the proof of payment reflecting that he refunded my deposit in full.  When I looked very closely I saw that the last digit of my account number on the proof of payment was a "3" and not a "2".  Thus trying to fool me into believing that the payment was made.

When I threatened to open a case of fraud (at the end of May) he refunded R5000 but no further payments were made after that.  He did advise that another R2100 was paid during July and that he will send a proof of payment but have not received the proof of payment nor has the R2100 ever made it to my account.  I have not received any further communication from him since.  He still has R7900 of my money.

He regularly advertises various services / products on Gumtree, i.e. property, hifi, petroleum supplies, etc.  Please be cautious when doing business with him.

BEING CONNED

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 24 July 2015
Reported Date: 26 July 2015

BEING CONNED

I was notified by "one" Derrick Owen, that he has a Zotye 1.3 Nomad engine for me as well as pictures.  He sugar coated me that the engine will be delivered, he supplied me with a false (I presume photos) etc. of said vehicle engine.  When I told him I wasn't happy to pay full amount he assured that a 50% of R3 000-00 is sufficient.  He sugar coated me that the engine will be delivered at said address I supplied me.  Upon reading all the previous reports, afterwards, I note that he has various alias' and different bank accounts.  My question is has anybody reported this fraudster to the Hawks, furthermore he company name and registration number is non-existent.  Rest assured that I will take this up with the authorities and the press and will trace this fraudster down.  His company's name is "LNM AUTO"  with address "108 Van Rova Road, Tongaat, KZN" Telephone number (032) 525 8301 / 076 721 9413


DO NOT DEAL WITH HIM OR HIS COMPANY(S)


If you want to learn a lesson first receive the goods before payment comments.

I booked and bought a voucher for an advance driving course through Adventure Bookings.Com, Nov '14 valid until 2017. Their office neighbors confirm they have moved office to "New York", and other clients are also looking for them. They don't answer their cell phones nor emails when you try to book the course.I have opened a case of fraud against them as they seem to be scammers.

Jacuzzi Deposit Fraud

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 23 July 2015
Reported Date: 23 July 2015

Jacuzzi Deposit Fraud

I posted an add in Junkmail, OLX and Gumtree that I'm interested in buying a Jacuzzi.  I received an email from 27736052538@mms.mtn.co.za sending me pictures of a jacuzzi they wish to sell for R5000, as they no longer use it, and said it's just in their way.  I contacted them and was informed that they have a truck and TLB company and they will be able to deliver it to me (as I could understand they live in Freestate), they apparently had a delivery booked for Pretoria, and there was no effort to transport the Jacuzzi to me the same time.  They also scanned the husband's Id, for protection reference.  I'm sure I'm not allowed to give the Id number on this report, but it is an green barcoded id, non SA citizen, name of the person, Michael Richard Rees Davies, (country of birth England). I did check the status and was a valid SA Id... (Almost sure now that perhaps this copy that was scanned to me was stolen).... I made the deposit payment of R1000 as Absa Cash send, I was stupid to give them the 6 digit number (242824) that they wanted me to use, as this was the first time I ever did a payment like this... I emailed them the proof and the "wife" Lizane phoned me and said that she will call me within a half hour to confirm the delivery time.  Half an hour went by, both telephone numbers were off, still not getting hold of them... I reported the case to my bank and police station.  The cell phone numbers is 0736052538 (Lizane) and 0842018215 (Michael)
