Holiday Flat Scam


He advertised a flat on gumtree for holiday accommodation at 404 infinity in Blouberg. We got in contact with him and after several dates of exchanging emails we paid the whole amount for 10 days. Come the 23 December 14 his phone was switched off and we decided to drive to his flat. Upon arrival at the flat we were met by the security guards that informed us here are already people living in the flat and Mr A Kamal Bello is no longer staying at the property. To make matters worse, we were that we were not the only ones he has conned. To confirm our fears we searched for his name on the web and we found lords of other people that has been conned. Be warned, A Kamal Bello is a fraudster.
We went to his bank at FNB First National Bank,  222 Victoria Rd, POB 9, Woodstock 7915, Cape Town, SA  Branch code: 201909 (Swift code: FIRNZAJJ) , Account Number: 62217094119, unfortunately it was too late. He had already withdrawn all the money and the account was in negative. Besides that there was already hold on the account.
