On the 26th of Oct, 2013 I advertised a device on Gumtree. Not long after that I received a call from a Mr Chris Dlomo, saying he wanted the device for his sons 21st urgently and he will do an EFT and sent his ID copy and send his driver to fetch the device. I received the documents which looked legit and he arranged the pick up. The money never appeared in my account since then.
Since then I have tried to contact him on numerous occasions and he lied that his account was frozen when in truth there is not even an account with those details at FNB.
After numerous calls it was discovered that the people who picked up the device was not even this Chris Dlomo's driver but a hired delivery guy and that he has the device still but is trying to extort money out of me to have it returned. They were driving a Toyota Copper RunX or Auris, registration number beginning with ADO.
This looks like a syndicate and I advise everyone to be aware what is happening on sale sites we have trusted in the past.
