    I'm in contact with a Mr Bill regarding a purchase of a golf cart and suspect it to be the same fraudster. He gave me company details of 8 mile investment with an address of 13 Kerk st, O'kiep, Northern Cape and contact no. 0634927125. email- mileinvestment8@gmail.com
    Maybe helpful to track him down. Don't understand that he gets away with the same scam for years and authorities can't track him down.
    Thank you for all the posts, saved me from losing a lot of money.

    List of telephone numbers so far:
    046 7635634
    044 6746566
    0835181182
    0717971221
    0833152044
    0810077746
    0780366670
    0730760695
    0607450960
    0787761878
    0734311919
    0630299658
    0632070508

    They "sell" everything from tractors, golf carts, embroydery machines, puppies, lucerne, cement, computers etc.
    in terms of the Fica laws the banks has a duty to determine that their clients are above board and the source of income can be verified. Illegal activities has to be reported.
    Can the bank details of these scamsters be listed on here so we can take it up with the banks concerned?
    Mine was Standard Bank, acc 10076188092. Names will likely differ since EFT's does not verify name details, but only acc numbers

    Names of the persons involved (scammers) are also irrelevant as they use aliases all the time.

    They are still at it. I was looking for a small garden tractor and found some John Deere 2320 and 2305 tractors, and Kubota BX tractors advertised for very good prices. Went into it and made contact, and it is the same group as these scammers. Sam M sent me messages (Sam Morgan?), and the business is in Kuruman. The address apparently exists but not with this business. The name on the invoice Abakho Trading really exists, and checks out on the companies register with a correct registration nr. How could they not be shut down since 2013 (Found ads as old as that) since banks are supposed to have all their details on hand?

    I was scammed out of R32 000 for a golf cart! I am a widow and pensioener and saved for 3 years to afford this golf cart which I was going to use at the old age home where I stay to get from A to B. They advertise on Locanto website. He pretends to be Mike238 from Centurion, but after long written discussion gave me another number 0717971221 for Sam Morgan who is the seller. Later I found out that he is from Kuruman and not Centurion, company name: ABAKHO TRADING COMPANY with registration no: 2012/145961/07. He then forwarded the courier's info to me so that we can communicate. He is Dave T Apaschi with cell no: +27833152044 and 0810077746 and 0780366670. His company is: ABC MOVING LOGISTC with registration no: 2005/041023/23. We comunicated for 4 days about the delivery. Then the transport guy contacts me and wants to R7700 for registration with NSW. By now I have paid R32 000 already, thats for trailer rental, Refundable Insurance and deposito for the golf cart. As soon as I said I am not paying one more cent....all comunication stopped! No answer on any cellphone or e-mail or sms. My money is gone! My heart is broken and the police feel nothing! Just another case! Give advise if you know how to get hold of these people please??

    They advertised a baby lock embroidery machine for a fantastic price. They even have a website at http://worth-south-africa-co-pty.sitey.me They say they are in Okiep Western Cape, and have an email address worthsapty at gmail.com A guy by the name of Duncan on phone number 0730760695 says they will send out a technician to train me how to use the embroidery machine. Anyway, luckily I realised its all a scam. Hope this helps someone. cheers George

  • glock19 9 Jun 2015, 04:52 PM

    THEY ALMOST CAUGHT ME PURCHASING A GOLF CART FOR R25000-00, BUT IT LOOKED TO GOOD TO BE TRUE. THEY EVEN SAID I COULD COLLECT IT MYSELF IN PORT NOLLATH. BUT WHEN I ASKED DIRECTIONS TO THE FACTORY THEY DID NOT REPLY. THAT IS WHEN I SAID TO MYSELF THIS MUST BE A SCAM, AND SURE IT WAS A SCAM. olx and junkmail should not allow these ads on their pages, they need to read our comments and investigate.

  • Chantelle13 31 Mar 2015, 12:13 PM

    Imperial equipments Maria/ Hahn / Clive advertised Bobcat skidsteer machines like new. For a ridiculously low price. Apparently owner leaving for overseas so urgent sale. Upon asking many questions via email Maria promptly responded to my queries. I requested the Serial number of the equipment a few times . It finally came after 2 hours. They insisted they could deliver anywhere in RSA or could even ship to other countries. I was given an amount payable within the hour. They gave a ridiculously low transport cost from Tzaneen to Durban. I googled and found this page and relayed to them what i found here. There correspondence stopped by staying if i didn feel safe i was welcome to come to Tzaneen and fetch the equipmnt. And i should confirm asap cos other buyers are interested. Maria says that jenny clive hans are co workers. My conclusion : when something is too good to be true , it probably isnt. Its a con.

  • christo 14 Jan 2015, 09:16 AM

    similar to rita (and thomas) JD ride on mower .jenifer is now maria and the company name used is imperial equipments. fortunately they used same address (27 peace street) so when i googled it the reportacrime notice popped up. txs reportacrime for saving me my money ! not sure why the olx people couldnt prevent the ad (i.e it took me 5 mins to check on google) also..when on olx it states the seller is in operation since 2013.. this creates the illusion of legitimacy which comes from olx???

  • Rita14 26 Dec 2014, 07:01 PM

    I almost deposited money into their account for ride-on mower...the deal also sounded to good to be true...since I made my own investigation,I'd rather not going through with "purchase"...Maria Adams was my sales lady/technical/director. Don't know if its also a scam,but,according to your original report I'm rather not doing the deal.better save than sorry...

  • Willie11 30 Nov 2014, 03:55 PM

  • Rayner 12 Nov 2014, 12:41 PM

    I have read these ads on OLX and was very interested in buying one of these golf carts... Obviously the prices sounded too good, so after quick google search found this thread. Why will OLX not accept reporting these ads as fraud? P.S. if we all drive there in person we could bliksem the whole lot!

    I got scammed by Jenifer 0630299658 for a GOLF CART, was emailed to send R3800.00 for "Insurance" By a Nigerian (and very stupid sounding) man his number was 0632070508. I have linked them to Hans Farming and also to http://www.photonet.wozaonline.co.za/ who sell Iphone, Cameras and Golf Carts (random!!!) online but ARE ALL FAKE _ lets stand together and do something!!!

  • OUT2STOPCRIME 16 Oct 2014, 04:17 PM

    Someone will put a bullet in all their heads one day. You cannot steal peoples money without someone eventually tracing them and taking matters into their own hands. We all know the police will do nothing, so we will leave it up to the people to take these cowards down. There are two major ways to trace them.

  • mani2 16 Oct 2014, 01:17 PM

    These people are a massive sindicate, lady pretending to be Jennifer(jenny) Lawn(Gillian). They are selling superbike trailers, jetski trailers etc all over junkmail, OLX and gumtree. I have reported them to authorities nuomurous times, and yet it seems nothing is being done. They use different bussiness bank accounts ranging from FNB, Absa and Standard bank. This I also reported and nothing has been done. They using the same MONTH everytime, and has scamed people under a few different names, including MoXoho multi trading, Slivia Aboyami multi trading, HM multi trading. They also have scam website DLmultitrading.biz and registered on exporters india accounts selling everything from oil etc. Watch out for them. IP trace puts them somewhere in Albertina Sisulu drive and van loovrn, close to a taxi rank.

  • THOMAS14 15 Oct 2014, 11:27 PM
