Fake ABSA deposit - OLX

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 21 July 2014
Reported Date: 26 July 2014

Fake ABSA deposit - OLX

I sold my fridge a black double door samsung on olx.  A guy called (calling himself Mr Nkosi) and said  he wanted to buy the fridge.  He asked for banking details to make payment.  I received an ABSA payment notification - I called the helpline on the sms and it took me to ABSA.  He then collected the fridge but 4 days later, still no payment reflecting!  The notification said the payment was made from K Nkosi, his cellphone number is 083 534 2091.  The guy continued taking my calls saying that he'll go to the bank because the money was paid.  He sounds really sincere too but the fact that the money is still not paid shows he's a con and he's quite convincing.  The number plate of the bakkie that collected the fridge is MKJ899GP (white).  The guy claimed to be from the East rand.

EFT and Cheque fraud

Location: Boksburg
Crime Date: 22 July 2014
Reported Date: 25 July 2014

EFT and Cheque fraud

I advertised a sound sytem on OLX on 22 July 2014 for R12000.00. A Guy calling himself WAYNE MACKENZIE phoned me and practically begged me to do an EFT. I made the mistake of giving him my account number at FNB. He insisted on sending someone to collect the items the next morning and wanted my address but I refused because I wanted to see the money in my account first. I immediately received a SMS from Nedbank showing the amount was paid to my account. Three days later and nothing showed. Today 25 July I again received a SMS from FNB showing an amount of R13000.00 paid into my account and an hour later a phone call from the same chap who insisted the money is in my account.

I told him he's committing fraud and he immediately hung up.

A Cheque can take 10 days to clear but worst of all is that I have to pay R20 for the deposit into my account.

Shaan Snyders - Scammer

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 1 April 2012
Reported Date: 24 July 2014

Shaan Snyders - Scammer

Beware of Shaan Snyders. He has scammed many people out of thousands of rands , and continues to do so. I first met him in 2012 when he conned me out of a lot of money and then he pretended that he had been killed by posing as someone else and communicating with me.

After I discovered he wasn't dead I got hold of him and he promised to pay me my money back. Needless to say he didn't do do that. I know of people that have been scammed out of hundreds of thousands of rands by this man and he should not be allowed to roam the streets and fly in and out of the country as he has been doing.

At the time of typing this on 24 July 2014 he is due to leave South Africa again for Malaysia to probably never return and I am sure that he will not be stopped by local law enforcement.
