On 10/10/2011 my husband searched for cars on sale on the internet as he wanted to buy one, he came accross 1999 Toyota corolla advertised on Gumtree by the person named himself Tumelo, My husband then called the number provided, and they agreed on a price of R20 000, My husband then called to Tumelo to confim that he is on his way to buy that car, my husband asked Tumelo for directions, Tumelo then sent directions via SMS on 10/10/2011 at 10:20AM which read: Langhoff Motors 12 Klipkop & Fochville road, Vanderbijlpark, Tumelo told him that someone else already paid R 5000 upfront for the car, but since my husband was so desparate to buy that car he can deposit R5000 in the mean time so Tumelo can be able to payback the other person, He send an SMS using phone Number 076 627 5821 on 10/10/2011 at 10:26 AM, on that SMS he sent an ABSA Bank Account No: 9265339061 - B. Mdluli was the name for the account holder. My husband deposited R5000 in the specified account and called Tumelo to let him know that the deposit was made, when he arrived at Vanderbijlpark, my husband tried to call Tumelo for directions again, Tumelo's phone was off, he tried again and again with no luck, Tumelo's phone was off for days. My husband tried to open a case at Phokeng Police Station but the police refused to open a case, they said it was not a robbery and my husband was not forced to deposit that amount of R5000. Please help us to get our money back, and to get this criminal behind bars.
