The Incident
To whom it may concern
There is a man on Gumtree going by the name of Frank Janson (From Gauteng). He pays for the items he wants and emails you a confirmation of payment and an sms confirming the payment. (see below)
Nedbank Payment:Quantas Trading has paid R10,500.00 into F.N.B Acc No:________ (I removed my bank acc details) on 2012/07/12,Ref:2012-07-12/Nedbank/0067654145 

He then asks you to send the goods to the Edenvale Postnet and his driver Ernest Maphela ID 8807286151089 will collect it. He also asks you to fax the postnet slip to 0867709910.
He says he works at Quantas Trading and his cellphone number is 0729495060 and his "landline" is (011)0366479
I always thought I would never get caught - but he was so convincing and I thought the sms and confirmation email was legit. (Silly me!)I also phoned FNB and they said if I received an email AND sms it was fine!

Mark as SPAM/Inappropriate

FNB always seems to be in the middle of some sort of client of theirs that is comittin fraud. I too was taken BIG by a FNB customer. That FNB customer customer had their account at Phoenix branch and dealt with managers at Phoenix and Unhlanga Cresent. The woman has alias names, Patricia, aka Cheryl, aka Sashni, aka Melissa and her business names BJ Trading or Bambela Jessu Trading or Isidinga Distr. Intnl. A real low-life and scum bag, but like I said, FNB seems to be attracting the like of the sorts.....
