I posted my camera and lenses on OLX as i really need the money to pay expenses. A person by the name of Bruce Palmer contacted me via 0710005719. He said that he wanted to buy the camera as a gift for his wife. I then sms'd him my email address and told him to email me so that I can forward him my banking details. I then forwarded my banking details and I then received an ABSA notice of payment SMS as well as an email as proof of payment.
As of yet no funds have reflected in my account. The payment was made by Trinity Holdings (Pty) Ltd. I then googled the company and called them, only to have them tell me that they have received numerous complaints of the same nature. Being the trusting individual that I am, as soon as I received the proof of payments I couriered off the camera to Number 106 Cnr Dunbar Street and Bezuidenhout, Yeoville, Johannesburg, 2198. Bruce Palmer asked me to mark the parcel under his caretaker's name, M. Kujeke. The email address corresponding to Bruce Palmer is firstname.lastname@example.org
So here I sit without the camera and without the R9000,00 that I "sold" the camera for.
I have opened a case of Fraud with the Police, so I am just holding thumbs that something is done about this.
