Theft of funds paid for an item


I ordered a moble phone (iphone 5) from popular electronics (http://www.popularelectro.com) on July 11, 2013 and inspite of the fact that I have paid for the phone and paid customs duty the phone has still not been delivered. It is two months since I placed this order. Ms. Enda Gumphrey the head of sales no longer responds to my emails or phone calls. What do I do?
She (this Enda Gumphrey) did the exact same thing to me. I paid for an iphone 5 (R4000) and then she later made me pay customs duty (R2750) which I did. When the phone had still not arrived 1 week later I contacted the dleivery company who told me I needed to pay an extra amount of R2550 over the customs duty I had already paid! I refused to do this and contacted Ms. Gumphrey who promised to sort it out by the next day! Then she drew a blank! She has not responded to my requests for a refund nor has she delivered the phone! I am taking her to court for what it's worth. Her website has now disappeared which leads me to think that she really is a scam artist and belongs in jail. I hope she gets arrested pretty soon and we do get refunded. - See more at: http://www.reportacrime.co.za/CrimeReport.aspx?ID=4252#sthash.WUv0fCm1.dpufShe (this Enda Gumphrey) did the exact same thing to me.
