Digital Solutions Sales Scam

The Company Digital Solutions that is advertising on free websites, on the internet, is scamming customers.

I saw an ad posted by the above company last week, I inquired about purchasing a camera from them. After paying R3070, for the camera they sent me a tracking number indicating that the item will be delivered the next day.

The next day the so called 'courier company' called to ask me to pay for the import duty and taxes which amounted to an additional R2320. Before paying I contact Steven the name on your their advert who indicated that I should make the payment and have the good released they will have the money refunded to me the next day.

So I paid the money but the goods did not arrive, I then called the courier to inquire on the status of the delivery only to be told that I need to pay another R1900 for admin fees. This is refused to do; I called Steven who said that he will look into it and call me back, which he never did. I made several calls to him most of which he did not answer.

The times he did answer he kept saying the money will be returned, this was never done. He is ever so calm on the phone saying that he/ his company have done nothing wrong. When I get angry because he is not willing to return my money he has the arrogance to tell me that he is putting the phone down because I am rude. This from a man who has my money and will not return it to me.

I googled this company and have found articles of other people who have been scammed by the same people.

To date my money has not been returned and the so called Steven cuts my calls.

    Here's another one which I suspect to be exactly the same scam. All their prices are too good to be true and there are no official landline numbers or company websites... They say they are based in Bloemfontein, but their company profile says it's in Pretoria.

    Good day Thanks for sharing this info with others I have been scammed off with R13,500 and still having the same battle to get hold of him or my money. I also know about several people who also have been scammed. Please stop this person, he is cheating people out of their money.
