I advertised a phone for sale on Gumtree. I was contacted by Enock Nkosi (0732468841) who wanted to purchase the phone for his wife. He said that he will do an internet transfer from a Nedbank Bank account and after I receive the sms confirmation to please deliver the phone to his cousin Brian as he is in Springs and cannot collect the phone, he wanted it by the afternoon because his wife was leaving that evening and he wanted to give it to her. I advised him that I will gladly give him the phone if I knew for certain that the money was infact in my account. After verifying with my bank and Nedbank the transfer could not be validated. He was very convincing by sending me a copy of his id and proof of residence and asked me to please trust me that all of this legit. I told him that I am not comfortable delivering the phone because there is no trace of the EFT. He got upset and asked me to please transfer his money back into his account. I told him gladly if the money was there. I went onto this website and found the very same picture of his Id and similar story where he infact did con other people. I am sharing this story and his picture so people are aware of who he is and do not fall for his scam. I didn't deliver the phone and his cousin Brian called me like 15 times insisting that I meet him. If you google this id number you will find that this man has infact stolen the id number and goes under various different names.
