I posted an advertisement on Junkmail.a Mr Chris Dlomo called me on 25 March 2014 to buy my device on Junkmail. He said that it's for his son and wants it urgently. I then told him that when the money is in my account, I will give the device to him. I then received a sms from a unknown service saying FNB payment notification with the payment. I asked for his ID document and he emailed it to me. I phoned my banker to ask about this payment and they said that no payments are pending on my account. I was already on my way to the delivery destination, but I stopped on the road to check the ID document. I'm a web and graphic designer. I know exactly what to look for, and at that moment I turned around to go back home. I'm sure he used a random picture from someone else and copied it into his document. I phoned him back to say that I will deliver the device when the money reflects in my account. He then said that i must pay the money back to him, and he doesn't want the device anymore. As I got home I phoned him again, but with no answer. I phoned again, and he answered. I asked him that I would like to know who does his Fake ID's for him, he asked me why, and I said because they need practice. It's terribly done, and I started asking other questions regarding his ID and the payment. He the hung up on me. I then phoned Junkmail Scam line and gave them all the information. I also reported this at the police station to make sure of my case. I did this to prevent more people losing money and valuable items. The number he presented was 0713028682. Email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
