My brother enquired on a add he saw in the junk mail for a GSXR 1000 that was for sale and that it can be paid off at R1500 a month, the seller who called himself Marnu asked my brother allot of questions and also stated that he is a policemen, he requested my brother send him a copy of his ID and a proof of residence which my brother did, my brother was not able to go view the bike which was with marnu in mafikeng so my brother asked him if he would be able to come here, he even offered him petrol money which this guy agree'd to, he gave my brother details for an instant money account which is a cellphone number, my brother willingly paid the cash R750 into this number and all was set, the guy said he would be here at 10:00, 10:00 came and went at around 11:00 the guy said he was almost here, at about just before 12:00 my brother received a whatsapp from him saying "I have scammed you and you need to pay R750 into the same instant money number or he will use my brothers details to scam other people the same way, my brother immediately reported this to the Police and got a case number, he sent another message to my brother stating his time is up and he is going use my brothers details now, my brother ignored the messages as he had reported it to the police already later on in the afternoon he again sent my brother a whtsapp saying in Afrikaans " geskok jou id is nou net gebruik" this is very worrying and concerning as my brother fears his name will be used "identity theft/fraud" and he will get into some sort of trouble, we have also reported this to the safps. Please can people be made aware of this we don't want this guy using my brothers name to scam or fraud people. PLEASE HELP!!!
