Scammers advertising a Campmaster trailer for sale for R4,000. Called the number of a guy called "Nico" (061 177 2855) and he said there are several guys already coming to look at the trailer, but nobody has "committed" yet. He said he would keep it for first person to put down a holding deposit. I asked him how much and he said R1,000 was fine.
He said I could just go to a Checkers or Spar and deposit R1,000 at the cash counter, they would then give me a receipt with an M-number and a pin (he said I should use 2020) - and then I should sms him the M-number, which he could use to withdraw the money on his side.
I grew suspicious when I saw the exact same pictures advertised under another ad on OLX, by a guy named "Chris" for R6,000 (cell 082 744 9542). This number didn't work when I called it.
I called "Nico" and asked him about it, upon which he just put the phone down in my ear.
I was lucky - I didn't get caught. There are several other adverts for trailers on Gumtree and OLX at very good prices, but which also looks supicious, by the following names:
