Wanted to purchase a vehicle on a website and paid a very small holding deposit via bank cash to cellphone facility. Seller gave fraudulent address. When I started investigating I found he had posted various vehicles for sale in various provinces, under two different cell numbers. The address was in Meyerton while in fact he was in KZN. With the assistance of the bank the area where the withdrawal was made was pinpointed and CCTV footage obtained. He has a female accomplice. After withdrawing from the one ATM he walked across the road to a shopping mall and withdrew more money from a different bank ATM. Most likely scammed another fool like me. Beware and should you know of any similar instances please post on this website. The website were given the various ads, they still have not replied to my message sent to them and all the ads are still on their website?
