Bakkie sale OLX

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 29 October 2014
Reported Date: 29 October 2014

Bakkie sale OLX

This lady advertised a Toyota Hilux Bakkie for sale R46000.  We responded to the advertisement several times, got all the information we needed and decided to take the bakkie.

She is based in Midrand and we are based in Bloemfontein.  We decided to drive to Midrand to view the bakkie and finalise the deal, but she required a R3000 holding deposit. She sent ABSA cash sent services instructions to pay the money so that it will show immediately.

Upon arrival the address was wrong and she did not answer any phone calls any longer.  She gave her husbands cell number earlier and we spoke to him as well.  But now all the phones are switched off.

I saw a second advertisement with the same name and phone number.  

Please help me stop them from catching somebody else with the same trick!

Crime Date: 15 October 2014
Reported Date: 28 October 2014

Gumtree Fraud

Hi All,

 

Please be aware of the man by the name of Rodney Lamos - He asked if he could buy several things I was selling online all at once which I agreed upon - he sent me a fake proof of payment from Nedbank and I got a sms - it all looked so real and legitimate. I got a call soon after wanting to make the pick up urgently - I became suspicious and decided to check the proof of payment out - On Nedbanks internet banking website you can verify a proof of payment - which came up with errors - I was lucky not to be swindled. His email is stocktrade@workmail.co.za and his number is +2760 459 3781

I hope that spineless people like this man gets karmas full treatment !

Online Fraud

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 9 October 2014
Reported Date: 27 October 2014

Online Fraud

Hi,

These two websites seem to be in it together.
www.megaplaza.co.za
www.xpertsmovers.com

Emails used for correspondence:
sales@megaplaza.com
Sales@megaplaza.co.za
enquirymg@gmail.com

info@xpertsmovers.com


I ordered and payed for a Nikon D3200 triple lense camera on the megaplaza.co.za site. Shipment was then apparently send through from headoffice through xpertmovers.com. They gave me a tracking number too (1412863765). When it reached the custom clearance stage, xpertmovers indicated that I needed to pay custom clearance since the package had two of every item in it. I checked with 'William' from Megaplaza on 0746299145 and he mentioned that this was so, since there had been some error on their side. He then requested me to pay the amount and forward him the proof of payment, indicating that they would refund me.I had alarm bells going off constantly at this point, but since I really wanted to have a camera before my overseas trip, I agreed and did a bank transfer to a 'Custom' account and forwarded MegaPlaza and xpertmovers the proof of payment. After a while, after constantly trying to establish the whereabouts of the package, the movers finally came back to me indicating that now there was addition package addressed to me (1413007568), for which I had to also pay Customs duty. Not realizing how stupid I was being, will all the alarm bells going on in my head, I went and did the additional transfer since I was flying overseas the following day and really needed the camera.

In the end though....up to know there has been no site of the camera bundle and no refunds. I did forward the mails to FNB to investigate those accounts in question, and they said they were looking into it.

A very expensive lesson learnt.....if its too good to be true, its often not true.

Would you be able to assist in any way?

Regards,


Krishna
