internet fraud


WE HAVE A ELECTRICAL SERVICE BUSINESS IN KLERKSDORP NORTH-WEST. FROM TIME TO TIME WE SELL GENERATORS. WE ADVERTISED ON  THE INTERNET . ON THE 5 TH JUNE WE RECEIVED AN E-MAIL REQUESTING INFORMATION ON THE MAKE ETC OF THE GENERATORS. WE PHONED THE PERSON CALLED STEVE GUSSI (TEL NR: 0738101003)  , HE SENT US A E-MAIL WITH A ORDER NR, BUSINESS NAME:  A COMPANY CALLED TALON TRADING ORDERING 4 GENERATORS . ALL THE PAPERWORK LOOKED VERY OFFICIAL-CK AND VAT NR. INCL WE ARRANGE WITH HIM THE DELIVERY COST ETC AND HE TOLD US THAT HE WILL PAY THE AMOUNT IN OUR BANK ACCOUNT. THE NEXT MORNING WHILE TRAVELLING TO OBESERVATORY JHB, WE RECEIVED A SMS CONFIRMATION CAME THROUGH  ON OUR CELLPHONE AND A NEDBANK CONFIRMATION (LOOKING JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL) CAME TROUGH OUR E-MAIL. WE THEN DELIVERED THE GOODS AND  A NIGERIAN GUY SIGN THE DELIVERY NOTE. ON OUR WAY BACK SEVERAL CALLS CAME TROUGH REQUESTING /ORDERING GENERATORS. JUST THEN WE SUSPECT SOMETHING WAS WRONG. WE PHONE NEDBANK, BUT WITH NO RESPOND ONLY SORRY U MUST WAIT 48 HOURS TO SEE THE PAYMENT IN OUR ACCOUNT AND NOBODY CAN ASSIST US WITH A TRACING OF THE PAYMENT. THERE WERE ALSO A GUY CALLED T NDUNA (082 7803794) THAT GAVE US A ORDER FOR 7 GENERATORS AND HE WAS VERY DEMANDING US TO DELIVER THE GOODS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE ALSO RECEIVED A SMS CONFIRMING HIS PAYMENT AMOUNT AND THIS IS WHERE WE SUSPECTED THIS IS A NIGERIAN SCAM. AFTER 2 DAYS A MAN CALLED JONATHAN ( PHONED US AND TOLD US THAT STEVE ASKED HIM TO DELIVER THE GOOD TO HIS SITE IN PIETERSBURG BUT STEVE GAVE HIM A FRAUD CHEQUE AND NOW HE IN POSSESSION OF OUR GOODS. HE WANTS TO RETURN OUR GOODS BECAUSE HE FEELS THAT WE ARE THE LAWFUL OWNER OF THE MACHINES. HE  ARRANGE THE EXCHANGING OF THE GOODS WITH US  ON 19/06/2012 AT RANDFONTEIN  BUT HE WANT US TO PAY HIM HIS TRAVELLING COST OF R1500.00.WE AGREED TO THAT HOPING THAT WE COULD GET OUR MACHINES BACK. WE ALSO DID A ID CHECK BEFORE PAYING IN THE R750.00 AT CHECKERS AND THE REST IN RANDFONTEIN. BUT NOBODY EVER SHOWN UP WE LOST IT ALL. WE OPENED A CASE AT THE POLICE . I CANT BELIEVE THAT OUR SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE CANT PUT A STOP TO THIS , WE ALL HAVE TO RICA OUR CELLPHONES, INTERNET  BUT STILL THIS SLICK FRAUDSTERS ARE GETTING AWAY WITH THIS SCAMS.WHY CAN'T THE BANKS HELP US WITH A VERIFICATION CODE ON INTERNET PAYMENTS ?  .THEY ARE VERY ORGANISED  AND  SLICK FRAUDSTERS! SO BE AWARE OF THESE BASTARDS!!!!
