Herewith I would like to report the following website as a fraudulent online retailer, www.flamesappliances.co.za.
Operation seems to be as follow;
* Clients place order with Flames Appliances
* Flames Appliances send invoice for item(s) + delivery fee
* Client pays for items into supplied bank account
* Client is then contacted by a third party fronting as the delivery company, in my instance . They then demand additional payment for customs clearances, import taxes etc
Having already realised that I have been scammed, I then declined to pay the addtional charges, and reverted back to the "Online Retailer", explaining that the service is not what was agrees, and demanded a refund
The retailer responded that I need to download refund documents from a fake dropbox location, which required me to enter me my e-mail username and password??? So they obviously tried to take the scan even further?
"Retailer" contact person provides details as follow;
