Leon Opperman - Scamster

I had been a victim of the same Leon Opperman. Bought a trailer from him of Junk mail. He told me he lived in Centurion and gave me a address in Wilhelmina road which turned out to be somebody else's  premises. He is a sweet talker and entertain you with fracas which include "trust and integrity". Also how he can't understand why people can't trust each other anymore. He apparently had build his business on integrity.
After a long phone call in afrikaans I really believed this is a genuine person and one of 'ons mense' our guys and I transferred R3000 in the form of a 'cash send' into a so called RMB account with a reference no.  574737 that is linked to his mobile no.
He didn't answer any calls after the money where transferred.
He is a ruthless thieve and use Junkmail and other internet based cites as his pray ground.

I lived in the UK for 12 years and have done almost 80% of my shopping on Ebay and Amazone and never had a problem with the other party. Which include suppliers from mainland Europe, Eastern europe, Ireland, Hongkong, China, and the US. You pay upfront through Paypal and your goods will be delivered to your front door in a couple of days. Back home though, my first internet transaction with a  'boertjie' turned out to be a scam and fake.
This is a shame on us as a nation.

If you had similar experiences with this person I am going to include the SAPS case no. so we can link the cases together and see if we can't stop this guy and nail him down.
I reported the case to the Welbeked police. case no. 93/03/2014
The investigating officer is CONST. Masemola contact no. 011 9641213 or mob. 082 4616278
I am also going to get Capt. Strijdom the station comander involved in the case and will post contact details soon.
Feel free to contact me Duan Vogel at 0718879403 if you have more information.
