ELECTRONIC SALES SCAM


This guy was advertising on OLX under different names (Simon, John, Ryan) the sale of electronic goods (Roland Drum kit in our case) advertising in Western Cape - then once you email him, said he was from a shop in PE and could courier goods overnight. Sent details of a fake company and a Capitec bank account in Gauteng.
We paid R2000 as deposit (didn't want to pay full amount). Heard nothing. Made contact with him and he then asks for the rest of the money - we refuse and ask for refund. He says its fine, the goods will come. He then asks for "import taxes" on the goods to be paid from another fake company. Again we refuse and ask for refund - so he says he will pay the taxes and the goods will be delivered next day. Thats the last we hear from him.
