Theft - Advertising under false pretenses


I would like to know how I would go about warning people inRandpark Ridge and neighbouring areas and will it be possible to put this inthe newspaper?We live in Randpark Ridge Ext 14, and have recently receiveda printer advertisement in the gate to which we replied to. The guy came out toour house with all his paperwork etc. Also stating he did some work for someneighbours in and we can phone them. We confirmed this, as we had some of the contactinformation available.He also explained and almost begged for the work as the lastwork he had was almost 3 months ago, and his wife will be very happy for himgetting something.We decided to help the poor guy out with something, thinkingthat as several people don’t have jobs, we at least can help one person at atime.After confirming everything, we told him that we will thinkabout this and let him know. Around 2 days later he said he can get somebuilding material from another site he worked on at almost half the price, buthe cannot collect this as he does not have any money.As we confirmed his credibility we decided to provide themoney in advance with him signing to accepting this.The next day he had problems with his delivery vehicle and wehad to help out again to get this fix. Total to R1400. He is promising everytime we call him to come the next day at 8am or will be there at 12 and so on,where after he stopped replying to sms’ and phone calls. He did once pick upthe phone, but did not know who we were and after explaining he yet againpromised he will be at the site the next day at 8am. And so this is going onand on.We have decided to try and get his details, but not sure ifwe will be victimised afterwards.We want to warn everyone in the area. Be warned, not justfor him, but people trying to do the same.Thanks to those taking advantage, we will NEVER trust orhelp anyone that really needs this. Due to us feeling sorry for someone withoutwork and he robbing us from our money
