Online fraud : Shop @ Amia


"Shop @ Amia": bought HP laptop almost five weeks ago. Still waiting for delivery or refund. There is only one word for this: fraud!

The shop has been removed from www.pricecheck.co.za as well because of fraud.

The owner Gert Cloete is just after your money. Don't fall in this trap. I saw numerous other complaints as well. Be warned!

    Gert Cloete is a lying thief stay away from him, i pitty the family that has to live with this man. He has no morals or conciousns let alone respect for other people he belongs behind bars. We will get him one day or the circle of life will catch up to him.

    My company bought a router in August last year, and paid over R12k including a labour amount. Gert never pitched for 3 meetings and then started avoiding calls and ignoring emails. Promised refunds etc etc but nothing came from it. I see today that his site is no longer up either, perhaps he's finally been brought down. As for my R12k...who knows if I'll ever see it again.

    I "bought" and paid for an iPhone in April, for R8200. Gert Cloete is very quick to contact you after you register, and extremely friendly. Once you've paid however, that's the end of it. No phone calls get answered, order links don't work, emails don't get replied to. Expensive lesson! Pity that every report I've seen for shop @ Amia has been placed after I placed my order, since I did do some research beforehand.

    Bought two computers 3 months ago for about R 10 500. Unable to get the computers or refund. Gert Cloete is a crook and should be brought to justice for the fraud that he is committing everywhere. He needs to be stopped before he catches anyone else

    We bought a camera - SX50 from this man Gert Cloete at the beginning of April. The camera was never ever going to be delivered and despite e mails, phone calls and threats he has made no effort to refund the money. This man is a criminal and is fleecing people at will. He has been reported and I have no doubt he will see his day in court.

    Bought a camera 35 days ago from the same shop, Shop @ Amia. After numerous hollow promises I still have nothing to show, NO CAMERA OR MY MONEY BACK. This company is BAD news for any business, PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS GERT CLOETE! I've reported this guy to the SA Police and fraud case has been opened against him.
