I first saw the advert on OLX south africa, I contacted the supplier to buy a 10KV generator, . FIRST Warning signs include
1.NO VAT NUMBER ON THE INVOICE.
2.EMAIL REPLIES FROM THE APPARENT SALES MANAGER SIMPLY SAYS ALFRED.
3. THEY COULDN'T ANSWER THE MOST BASIC TECHNICAL QUESTION.
4.ALL GOODS ON THIS WEBSITE ARE FOREVER ON SALE.
5.THE WEBSITE ALWAYS SAYS WE HAVE 352 GUESTS AND 214 MEMBERS ONLINE, THAT NUMBER DOES NOT CHANGE EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
6.THEY WEBSITE IS POWERED BY OPENCART SYSTEM, A BIG LEGIMATE COMPANY WONT USE OPEN SOURCE PAYMENT SYSTEMS.
7. FREE DELIVERY THROUGHOUT SOUTH AFRICA, YA RIGHT,? 900 KG ITEMS FREE DELIVERY IN A IN A VAST COUNTRY LIKE SOUTH AFRICA
8.THEY DO NOT HAVE A BUSINESS ACCOUNT, NO PHYSICAL ADDRESS ON WEBSITE BUT THEY USE THE FOLLOWING ACCOUNT
Bank Name: First National Bank (FNB)

They also have a fake freight company website where they even give you a tracking number. www.freighmoverservices.com, again no physical address, website is new, expires next year. no physical address of contact number. very professionally designed.
they scammed me of R18700. watch out of olx adverts, i consider myself to be on very intelligent but they got me.
