fake camera deals on locanto, OLX and other sites


Comment by: against online fraudCommentI ordered a Nikon Camera and lens for R8535. I was given a tracking number for the courier company Logistic moving with the web site : logmoving.com  I was then told I need to pay R4200 duty fees etc. and was told that it was at Joburg Airport. I was also told quote "In regard to the import duty, we have contacted our head office in the UK and they said they were not aware of any import duty in SA because 200 Great Britain Pounds was paid to the UK customs before the package left for SA. Management is ready to make the payment but it will takes 30 working days to process out the money from company's account and by then the bill get accumulated by customs in SA, so they suggested you make the money and have it in refunded back to you after 30 working days or have it replaced with mixer in your parcel. Please save this email for reference purpose." I have lost all that money.

    Thank goodness for Report a Crime! Almost fell for it, same scam but advertised on OLX as Somerset West. Looked like a second-hand canon lens (Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM)@ R12 000 a bargain! Then the email arrived from electrosolut@gmail.com ELECTRONICS SOLUTION LIMITED 159 Joe Slovo Street, Durban 4001 Registered No.2009/442211/77 Michael Allen Claiming that their Head office is in the UK and that stock takes 23 - 25 hours to arrive... Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM for R12 000 NEW???? I smelled a rat and googled the company and landed on Report a Crime where all you good people warned me against this. Thanks so much! I have reported the incident to OLX with all the details. Hopefully they will be able to remove this seller.

    Sadly I am the latest victim of this scam... R6000 later and here I am posting my own story of being scammed. Which also means this scammer must be making a killing off us poor South Africans... Did anyone get their money back?

    There are still good people in South Africa..... I just want to thank you all so so much as I was about to purchase an item but when I asked for a picture and they sent me a pic that was copied off the internet, I suspected something. Especially when they said the item is new and a second hand item pic was sent to me. I then looked for scam and found your most helpfull comments that has saved me thousands of rands. It's people like you that are helping against fraud. I hope you are able to recover your money. Many thanks again.

    I know of this scam. I've just been ripped off R18,665.00 trying to purchase a Panasonic AG-AC160 Camcorder last Wednesday. They even sent me an email with a fake link to cipro, claiming that they are a legit company. I see here they were using denton technologies to me they have used Woodbridge Technologies... the web address is www.woodbridgelectro.com and they're now using 079 538 3820 and the guy's name is Richard Higgs. sales@woodbridgelectro.com. PLEASE MY FELLOW SOUTH AFRICANS STAY AWAY FROM THESE GUYS! Only recently that I've noticed that they are advertising on more that 50 websites.
