I placed an ad in OLX for a lift club. Was contacted by Louise (Lulu) Parsons, who claimed she had a company registered with the department of transport. I asked for a landline or physical address but Louise was on her way to Jhb. She said I would receive an email from the department of transport. I did receive this with the logos but the email address was strange. Louise wanted me to deposit R250 into her account to secure my seat in her quantum (she has 16). She sends "please calls" after I said I am waiting for clarity from the department itself. This is a scam which I almost fell for!
I was suspicious due to the ffg:
- the rate for travel was too low.
- the lady did not have a landline or physical address.
- the email address from department of transport was not legit ( I work with Govt depts).
Louise aka Lulu sent me "please calls" - she didn't call me.
- I googled louise parsons and found this site.
Please be cautious. Prevent yourself from getting scammed.
