internet classified scams

Internet scams selling cheap Cameras, Computers and I-pods etc. Watch out for companies with no physical address using gmail and yahoo accounts, and only cell phone numbers for contact.

I have been "sold" a Canon camera, and paid for it, only to notice it was re-listed the following day.

Various names.. All you have to do is search Google and you will find wherever they duplicate the ads to on free classifieds.

One here below, also with addresses at all main cities.

King St, Springbok, Northern Cape, 8240, RSA

watch out for shop2easy as well, they have been reorted on

Shop2Easy Limited

Bank account is registered at FNB, Johannesburg under the name of Wandile Nkosi

the use newly opened accounts all the time with false ID's or use friend's accounts. All you have to do is FIRST check with the bank, and report these incidents to the police.  the LAW protects their Identities and the banks will n ot disclose their ID's to you, only the police.

I have a list of ID's they have used over the last 18 months.. They are still in operation all over:

    We have also been scammed by Shop2Easy. How do I go about making this public it appears that they are still able to do business or should I say they are still able to scam more people
