    Well, well. Craig, calling himself Wayne West, just took us for R13 500. Supposedly sold us the while falcon and then, once he had the money, no delivery and gets aggressive or evades our calls. This guy is the ultimate scum bag. Time he got stopped.

    Reported this to the police , opened a charge of fraud but over a year now and nothing, even after Craig Radue openly admitted to receiving my money and not supplying what was paid for ie fraud. Why don't they have programs like Police File on tv anymore like they had in the past People you can get this crooks picture from Facebook and email,tweet,whatsapp, bbm it to everyone you know as I have done , so people know this fraud by sight !

    Hi Stephan, I have tried several things, small claims court is very familiar with this character, they say it is a waste of time as his assets are in other people's names. What they suggested is to get a bunch of people together and collectively go to SAPS and lay a charge of criminal fraud. I have no idea of how to contact some of the people that have posted their ordeal with this guy. You can contact me on 079 0259569

    He truly lies like hell-never keep his promises-Got R1620 out of us for fixing a fridge and stove but it is not fixed broke down within 2 weeks,(September)-and he just make false promises.Debbie,what did you come up with ? He states that he does work for Insurance Companies-they should know abou this

  • Debbie12 20 Aug 2014, 02:18 PM

    Hi everyone. Yes it is true, this man, Craig Radue is indeed a fraudster and scam artist of note. He has just ripped me off almost R2000 for repairing a fridge. Fridge broke after a month and he as yet has not honoured his 6 month warranty. I have phoned him almost every day to come and pick up this fridge and he always says he will come pick up at a certain hour and never pitches, day after day. He only answers his phone when he is in the mood to tell another lie. I now sit with a broken fridge, which does not belong to me, lost R2000, and have not means of replacing the fridge. This guy should be stopped somehow. I am working on it.

    No refund , and still rejects calls , proving himself a fraud.

  • hennie7 20 Nov 2013, 10:07 AM

    My doughter says he lives in his shop,he and he's underage girlfriend. So its the same adress as the shop adress,I'm so glad someone is brave enough to take care of this crimminal.thank you

  • Username4927 20 Nov 2013, 07:57 AM

    I know his shop address, what is his home address ? It's time to put this crook behind bars !

  • stephan11 19 Nov 2013, 06:33 PM

    That kinda makes sense,my daughter goes to the same school, van kervel hennie? Reason I say so the girl they say he's dating surname is hatting,look at the acount details its also a hattingh,sanil I've seen he's falcons and they are in bad shape! He got a white one as well, and its chips all over the lights etc, don't make a deal with him ,my wife bought a fridge from him and it wasn't even 2 days and it broke,only saying "unforseen breakage" he doesnt do refunds. If the police wants he's adress just comment

  • stephan11 19 Nov 2013, 06:10 PM

    This guy is trully a scam and a con artist,and wait there is more my boy goes to the same school of his girlfriend!! She's only 15 and he's 43 years old,people have gone to the police but everytime the lie to cover them and says she's dating he's son,he is truly a reason why crime is so high an rips off the good hard working people of south africa.I know where u live mr.craig and be sure u will hear from me

  • Username4927 19 Nov 2013, 11:04 AM

    Over a month gone and still no money returned or parts provided ! No surprise ! Craig Radue now you get to tell your lies to the police !

  • Username4927 1 Nov 2013, 11:57 PM

    Thanks Kobus I'm going to

  • Kobus23 1 Nov 2013, 11:28 PM

    Go lay a case of fraud at the SAPS

  • Username4927 31 Oct 2013, 12:13 AM

    Still no money refunded and all emails and calls ignored ! There you have it good people of South Africa , scam or no scam ?

  • Username4927 29 Oct 2013, 08:39 PM

    Hey Craig If this is not a scam then where's my money ? Also why did you not give me an account under your name ? It has been in the account of JH HATTINGH since 12 October 2013 for almost three weeks now. I tried calling on 16 October 2013 and you did not answer. You sent an email on 18 October " U will receive your parcel today. Tracking no will be sent shortly. " I did not receive anything. I called again on 21 October 2013 and you did not answer again. I sent you an email on 21 October 2013 asking you to refund me but you did not respond. Ignoring someone like that especially if you have their money and have not delivered the items paid for , will lead anyone to believe that they have been scammed. You only responded after seeing this report. I'm still waiting for a refund.

  • Username4927 29 Oct 2013, 10:35 AM

    Hi Jason As you see from Craig Radues response , he implied a refund to me I'm still waiting Will keep updating

  • Jason Hartman 29 Oct 2013, 10:01 AM

    Oh my god ! Thank God for this website ! I almost put R6300 into this mans account for the same falcon xr6 lights and indicators and bumper and bonnet etc ! How many falcon xr6 does he have to promise the same parts to God knows how many people !

  • Username4927 28 Oct 2013, 11:28 PM

    Craig please put cash R2850 into my bank account and send me proof ( deposit slip ) Once I have confirmed the money is in, then only will I delete this post !

  • CRAIG RADUE 28 Oct 2013, 11:10 PM

    look I don't feel like arguing about smething that I could have sold 10 times over ok. I just received an email from you admitting that in your words " however I don't mind driving to Durban to pick up " thereafteryou ask for a date no sir I don't think I will like to do business withyou. everyone in George knows about my falcons so please do not insinuate that this is a scam u have the address I invite you to here and you can see for yourself the falcons.i have your bank details please find your parts elsewhere. good luck sir.

  • Username4927 28 Oct 2013, 11:06 PM

    It is 28 October 22h54 email sent to me from Craig RADUE : "U can retract that on the internet and u will have them within the week. U can go see on all three major sites the add is running again. Gumtree junkmail and olx. If this was a scam I defnitely would NOT run it over and over. I even told various buyers today that the lights are sold. " And at 23h09 : "Retract now and u will have them by end of week. This is an unfair add as I did say I will send directly to dbn and you admitted u did say u did not mind colllecting there." Until I have the lights and indicators in my hands this post will remain Two weeks was a reasonable amount of time to send to me even by economy freight

  • Username4927 28 Oct 2013, 10:54 PM

    Craig this is the first time I'm hearing about the difference for the freight charge from you and on this website ! We agreed that I would pay R450 over and above the R2400 for the lights and indicators , just for the freight charge so you could " send the parcel to me directly postnet to postnet " as you said I will not pay anymore Now you email me and give me a different story that you are sending it with a friend to Durban so now I have to drive to Durban to get it ? Give me a straight answer for once at least Where are the lights and indicators I paid for and when exactly will I get them ? Can you answer me ? I've given you two weeks already which is reasonable time to send and receive even a large parcel I buy stuff on ebay that comes from a different continent faster than two weeks

  • Unknown 28 Oct 2013, 10:23 PM

    YES THE CLIENT HAS PAID AND I HAVE ALSO SOLD VARIOUS OTHER PARTS ON THAT FALCON. HOWEVER THE FREIGHT I CHECKED ON IS FOR THE CLIENTS ACCOUNT AND THE FREIGHT QUOTED IS DIFFERENT TO THE VOLUMETRIC WEIGHT SO ONCE THE DIFFERENCE HAS BEEN PAID THE PARTS WILL BE SENT SAME AS ANY PARTS SHIPMENT
