    Just got a message from this guy on OLX. Thanks to this post I know it's a scam. Only searched for this guy because I was nearly scammed by someone on Gumtree called Franklyn. He sent an ABSA sms proof of payment which was fake. He used this number: 071 752 1955 He also tried to get me to deposit money into this number using eWallet 063 037 0812 Used this email address: hussainfranklyn@gmail.co.za

    yip, the same idiot tried contacting me. Also googled his name & came across this site. Always say that you only accept cash when they pick up the goods & don't invite them into your house.

    Thank you for your comments. I'm selling a bed on OLX and he contacted me saying he wanted to purchase the bed right away. I asked him he wanted to see it and he said he would take it without seeing it. He wanted to 'transfer funds' - so I said I would have to see proof of payment from him, AND confirm first with my bank it was genuine. I haven't heard anything back from him. I just decided to google his name and this came up. So thank you guys, I'm sorry he got you, but you've saved someone else the pain of being scammed. He used: 061 872 3702 and allen0257@gmail.com He told me he was in Bedford View area...

    Allen Jacobs contacted me in regards to a 6 seat couches that I advertised on OLX and junk mail. He said that he was interested and paid the amount over on 30 May @ 17h30. He said that a courier company will collect the coouches. Outcome is that the payment advise is fake. He mentioned he is from East gate and Kensington, 77 Broadway Ave He uses 074 755 5432 and allen0257@gmail.com

    Allen Jacobs did the same thing to me. He "purchased" a furniture set which I was selling for R12 000. Fake amount, furniture gone. The furniture set was to pay to set up for the new baby.... now we have no furniture and no money.... I can't believe people now-a-days.
