Placed an ad to sell cameras, projectors, light meters and various other photographic equipment in the Junk Mail. Was contacted by a Jonathan who stated that he was opening up a shop and needed them urgently. He took my banking details and sent me a "confirmation" of monies paid in. He sent his brother that evening to collect all items ... guess what? No money appeared and I have lost all the items. The police stated that they are not able to help me as I allowed them to remove the equipment from my home. They also took a lot of jewellery ... gold chains, bracelets and watches. Total cost lost is about R60 000. Stupid me!
