These people are placing ads on web sites like OLX, Gumtree, Auto Mart and Junk mail advertising vehicles at great deals. They are very professional and convincing one that they are a car dealership in Heidelberg Gauteng. When one phone them, they tell you that there are other clients also interested in the vehicle and to secure the deal, you must pay a deposit into their account. ( We all know what follows!) Normally a Capitec or FNB account.
They are using the following telephone numbers: 011 078 7294, 011 050 7813, 011 054 6089 and 011 066 8520. These numbers are listed to a company NEOTEL Pty Ltd. Must be NEOTEL employees using the work's telephone lines. I contacted NEOTEL to inform them of the scam, but nobody was very interested to assist. They are so professional, they even got a website!! www.cmmotors.co.za . I played along and they sms me the following banking details: CM MOTORS (Mr. S NGUBANE) CAPITEC BANK ACC NO: 1414279300 BRANCH CODE: 470010. Then you must fax or e-mail the proof of payment to fax: 0866364279 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. They then phone you non stop to confirm if the payment was made cause the other salesman got a client as well. When confronting them they then tell you it's their job to scam and steal and laugh at you. They then told me he wish he can show me how many people he caught for the week and is making a lot of money. Be careful for these people cause they are professional and will take you for a ride to get hold of your hard earned money!!
