Fraudulently advertising and accepting EFT.

A vehicle part was ordered from an OLX, advertiser, Toys4Kids. In May 2014 a invoice with banking details was issued, paid by EFT, and presented to Mr James Coombes, owner of Toys4Kids.

Scam builders

Good day
I would like to found out where to report if think the contractor you are dealing with is a scam.
My reasons are as follows:
1.They gave me two different bank details after I wanted to pull out from their deal saying they want to do away wit tax.
Please refer to attached documents.
2.they cannot even make walls they even forget to put cement between blocks I left the pictures with NHBRC who also claims they are even registered with them I also tried Masters building who also says they are not registered with them.
3. I checked with CIPRO just to see if the company like this exist ,they were nowhere to be found.
4. the invoices they send me are homemade there is not even a receipt number.
Now they push me to pay more until the balance is almost paid up but they have not even put windows or break the walls for this renovation.

Please help me because they do not want to come and complete they come once or twice a week but they have been paid.
Thanks
Ms C.P.Shangase

internet banking fraud scam

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 10 July 2014
Reported Date: 20 July 2014

internet banking fraud scam

I advertised an apple air laptop on OLX.  Was contacted by a person introducing himself as Jeremy Randall.  He asked if he could do an electronic transfer for the amount requested.
I asked where he banked. He replied Nedbank.  I then gave him a Nedbank account number to transfer the money into.  
He forwarded a very legitimate looking proof of payment from FNB accompanied by an legitimate looking sms.
A person picked the computer up within the hour after the payments. When I asked why he did not use the nedbank account he said he used his business account.  The numbers used by these fraudsters are:  076 390 3194, 076 395 9077, 078 894 0111, 073 244 5095 and 074 588 8868.  e-mail address:  jrendall50@gmail.com.
They also use a ID of Muller.  I have opened a criminal case against them.

Scam about galvanized trailers

I replied to an advert on OLX for a galvanized trailer 3 to 4meters forsale from T Y Trailers in Upington. I paid over the asking price plus transport to deliver trailer in Rustenburg. I was told trailer was loaded on truck and would be delivered to me on Saturday morning in Rustenburg. Since Friday night phone of seller went to voicemail and trailer was not delivered.  I just saw an advert on OLX with the same photos and the same cell number selling the trailers but this time seller is in Pieter Maritzburg, Kwa Zula Natal. Cell number of so called seller is 072 455 6299 and 081 596 1841.

Gary Kovacs & Chantel Kovacs

Chantel Kovacs & Gary Kovacs owners at Greenday Led & Solar.
These people swindled money from unsuspecting customers, including myself.
The total amount is currently R 44 610.00 from 3 different people as seen on hellopeter.
They have removed their website as well as their Facebook page in a attempt to hide, they also do not reside at the address advertised on Gumtree & Junkmail. 
32 Jabulani Estates 
Lombard str 
Centurion

They do still advertise on Gumtree, as Gumtree refuses to remove their ads.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM! ! ! 
You have been warned.

Case of fraud has been opened at the SAPS.
