Dynamic Gadgets/ TimeFrame Couriers/JOSE MELCHO /

Hi Bought an Iphone for R6000 advertised on OLX only after receiving an invoice from a company called dynamic gadgets SA.  Received a tracking number from them for a courier company called Timeframe Couriers.  Waited and when chased up the courier via email was told that the parcel was held up in customs. Like an idiot the Dynamic Gadget guys via email said sorry pay the courier and they will reimburse me. The package contained other stuff apple notebook etc. R1350 later.  Still no deliver, should have checked.  Looking on HelloPeter the electronics company changes its name but the TimeFrame Courier has taken a lot of people for more money without delivering any goods.  There must be some way of stopping these guys from ripping more people off.

    I was almost scammed by these scumbags. I wanted to buy CDJ's from them (which were unrealistically cheap) but they were insisting on full upfront payment or 50% thereof. I said to them I commit to paying the full amount upon receiving my goods and that was the last time I heard from them. My advice is that please use all avenues at your disposal (banks, hello peter, ombudsman, report crime, etc) to verify the authenticity of the seller before you buy something over the net.

    i bought my son a G2 Stroller from that company last year in November and still nothing. i called FNB to query the account and was told it wasnt a business account and that i need to open a case with the police because the only way they freeze the account is if i give them the case number. They were able to confirm receipt of funds into that account etc and know who the individual is so i now i wait for feedback.

    Hi, I saw their ad on locanto.co.za and started interacting via email. It's really suspicious since their prices are way low. they said they buy it from ebay, which allows them to have these prices. I was very excited because I would be able to afford a new Macbook pro (they sell a very nice and powrful one for about 8000, while others are selling used ones for over 12000 rands). Now I'm afraid to make a deal with them. :(

    I was scammed by camera2lenz.com and they also make use of timeframe couriers... my package is currently at customs and they demand payment of R4000. I have phoned the courier conpany just to be greeted by a very rude nigerian man called James.. These guys just steal your money until there is nothing left. I not paying them a cent more, hope that one day someone will catch them.
