OLX & GUMTREE FRAUD

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 30 July 2015
Reported Date: 31 July 2015

OLX & GUMTREE FRAUD

So I get a call on an ad placed on OLX and Gumtree from a guy called NICO STEENKAMP tel number: 082 388 4302. To MY DAM STUPIDITY I decided to listen to this guy as he wanted my items for his wife's birthday. In 10 minutes he sent me proof of payment via sms, via email, from a gmail address: steenkamp243@gmail.com and he also sent me proof of residence and copy of id and copy of passport. He then asks me if I can drop it which I continually say no because I want the funds to reflect in my account first. Anyways after begging I eventually agreed for him to send his driver by the name of Francis 061 890 3909. The driver rocked up here in a Red Nissan Sentra160i with the Registration number: BLOOFR GP. They collected the items and I have not received the funds. I have now tried calling them and sms them but no luck. I AM SO DISGUSTED WITH THE EVIL IN THIS DAM WORLD. Be careful everyone, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING OR SELL ANYTHING on OLX or Gumtree. May you all rot in HELL!!!!

Springleaf Financial is a fraud

Crime Date: 3 March 2015
Reported Date: 30 July 2015

Springleaf Financial is a fraud

please help me to get my money back

I applied for a loan of R 80 000.00 and it was approved I was told to pay for the contract and then pay for the SA Reserve Bank and pay the HSBC Bank to transfer the money from England and then pay them again as there was a delay and that is how it carried on from the 3.3.15 to the 30.3.15 had told Alice Hudson and Mark Davison that I had paid in the amount of R 126 390.00 and he promised me that the money will be in my account a cheque was deposited of R 160 000.00 AND Alice and Mark told me I must do another deposit of R 19 700.00 for the cheque to be cleared and I said no the cheque was then reversed and since then I have not yet received my money that I had paid in.  I just want my money back that I had put of R 126 390.00 and so you know that my money is in South Africa into your peoples account I will be posting every document of payment and your so called contract and the payments that I had made with the id numbers and the banking account numbers even though you have drawn out all the money when I had deposited the money into the account and all the emails. I had checked with the SA Reserve Bank and they know nothing about the document that you people and emailed me so if you are looking for a salary for someone this month please don’t think that I am crazy to pay you the amount of R 6 520.00. And also I have checked with the HSBC Bank as I had emailed them all the documents and the documents do not belong to them. And another thing is that the lawyer that you use M.E Zulu is not even in the building that you had stated as nobody in Port Elizabeth knows a lawyer by that name. You have stolen the amount of R 126 390.00 from me but all you people will lose much more and I will make sure that you will land up in prison with this fraud

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.

Fraudsters Adventurebookings.com

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.
