Hillary Nkosi

Was advertising my New cellphone on Gumtree, when a so called Hillary Nkosi sent me a message about an hour after asking if the phone was still available. I replied that it was and minutes later he asked me for my bank details saying that he would transfer it straight away. I received a sms notification saying that the money was transferred. After a while he sends me an email and proof of his fake ID. Gladly I went looking for the name and ID on the internet because it was too easy to be true. He said that the transfer would be done after midnight. He is using 0733960290 and he so called driver is using the number 0739651895. Be Aware, this guy is a big fraud. He almost caught me.

    This guy tried to scam us as well! I got his number on this website http://latestscams.co.za/selling-iphone-on-gumtree/ Seems like this is his full time job

    I was very nearly caught by this guy about an hour ago! Thank heavens I did a google search on him first. He phoned me from 072 922 5332 and Martin, (the 'driver') phoned me from 074 900 7295. I cannot believe how very close I got to actually losing the item I was trying to sell! He made payment into my account, sent me his ID, I went to the back to make sure the money is in fact in and when they told me it wasn't (after Hillary said he was making an immediate payment,) I was very unsettled. I came home and did a google search on him and to my shock an horror my gut feel was right!!! I wish there was a way to pull a fast one on this guy and actually have him arrested.
