Swimming Pool Scam


Saw an advert on Junkmail regarding a swimming pool installation with a lapa for R32 000. Contacted the person who called himself Tshepiso. They arrived the next day and began the job as promised. He called and said he needed the second half of the deposit to carry on with the job. Paid him in cash, after I had given him the requested cash he left a set of keys which I had given him to enter my property tried calling him but to no answer, and suddenly his phone is off.

    I got caught with the same scam in Nelspruit. They advertised in local paper...pool and lapa combo deals. Dug hole and did concrete than disappeared with my money after requesting payment to buy marbelite and pump. I have a photo of the scumbag and two of his rubbish workers.

    I have also been a victim of this. It sounds very similar to our story.
