    I just put an add on Gumtree to sell my double door Fridge, few seconds later Allen Jacobs calls me interested in the fridge, I told him to email me so I can give him the details. Very suspicious that I received a call so fast I did some research and found this. I've been fooled before a long time ago, never again. Here is another mobile number he called from:083 750 2417.

    Got a call from Milton Mathazi contact number 0787367231 with same request. Will pay immediately from Nedbank and send me proof of payment and will arrange for pick up of lounge suite. Made it clear if money does not reflect I will not release furniture. Still waiting for money. Be careful. This address does not exist on Google maps.

    He used the name Simon when He first contacted me and said He saw my add on olx and that He was very interested in the living room suite. I then offered to send more pictures but he wasn't interested and said He will send the couriers to collect, received a pop from ABSA and then He phoned again to arrange pickup. Had a bad feeling and then Googled the email address and found Him here. He uses the name Simon but the mail came from Allen Jacobs, 0837507417, allen jacobs WATCH OUT HE IS A THIEF 'Not very clever thief but definitely a criminal!!

    Thank you for your comment. I'm selling a bed on OLX and he contacted me saying he wanted to purchase the bed right away. I asked him he wanted to see it and he said he would take it without seeing it. He wanted to 'transfer funds' - so I said I would have to see proof of payment from him, AND confirm first with my bank it was genuine. I haven't heard anything back from him. I just decided to google his name and this came up. So thank you, I'm sorry he got you, but you've saved someone else the pain of being scammed. He used: 061 872 3702 and He told me he was in Bedford View area...
