He supposedly lives in Port Elizabeth

He advertises various pieces of wooden furniture for sale on classified sites such as JunkMail. The furniture is never delivered and is always "on route" but he will not give you the courier company name or the tracking number. Eventually he will not correspond with you anymore. Be aware he also sells other items such as watches, bike accessories etc.

He also uses his own site to ensnare victims:

    Guys, if you do not report this to the police and get a case number, you will never see your money. The more people we can get to open a case against this scammer the better. I am willing to help where possible. I'm in Pe and is willing to assist the police where possible. Please feel free to phone me anytime. My number is in previous comments.This guy has scammed the last time. I will not allow my house to become a crime haven.

    I was engaged to him 9sad to admit it). Refused to give my Fortuner back after months of not paying and messing it up, carting his 'deliveries'. Tried lawyers, court, cops...eventually had to bring in the heavies and got back it. He tried to sell my tyres and rims for it online too, never mind the goods he stole from me and sold online...with all these cases, why aren't the cops actually doing something about it ?? Report theft too...
