Shipping container scam!


Good day,
Please be aware of scams going around in selling shipping containers from Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg.
I was scammed by a company with the alias NCN Containers Ltd and Container Smart CC. They require a reserve payment and when you want to arrange for delivery they do not answer their e-mails or telephones.
They run adverts in Gumtree and other on line advertising sites.
Be aware of the following aliases:Ruth BrownJonathan HoldingStephen AleAntonio de Souza
They use the following company registration number: 1998/025052/23 and VAT registration number: 4870173566
Telephone numbers to be aware of is: 078 665 1438 and 041 363 1071
Do not make any payments to them at the following bank account:FNBNCN CONTAINER LTD62488118665

    I advertised a container on Gumtree and was contacted by sms by a Tony De Souza. He said I must remove the ad as he would sell it and I must pay him 10% comm after his buyer pays me When I tried to call him, he sms'd he had a speech defect. Fortunately I was suspicious and then I spotted this report above and will not fall prey to this scam. Bank account he supplied was Nedbank 1534028706. His Cell 0829733195
