Vehicle Finance Fraudster runs off with R10,000


Good Day. I recently paid a R10,000 for a deposit on a vehicle through a company claiming to offer private vehicle finance. RTS Vehicle Sales & Finance. A guy by the name of Tim Van Schalkwyk gave me a Capitec account no on a company tax letter head with a vat no the works via a email rtsadmin1@webmail.co.za & rtsvehiclesales@webmail.co.za and i paid the money in. The vehicle was at a dealer that confirmed once they invoice RTS and gets paid i can take delivery. When i approached the dealer again to take delivery of the vehicle he knew of nothing. Expecting something is seriously wrong i went back to Capitec where i was advised that the full amount have been withdrawn. The owner of the bank account now claims that he gave his card with his pin details to this Tim as part of a job application. What can i do now?
