I contacted a gentlemen with regards to a add he placed on OLX for sale of vw polo 2006 1.4 vehicle. The add was posted on OLX since16 December 2014 from Somerset West, Cape Town as stated on the site for R 35 000.00 negotiable. His name advertised on the site is Noah with cell number 062 342 3897. I contacted this guy on whatsapp with number 072 749 2915 on 22 Jan 2015 at 12h27 asking for more pics and if the vehicle is still available. He replied yes and that all is in order with regards to paperwork and licensing. The guy said that he is willing to bring the vehicle to me but he is in need of petrol money and asked if I can eWallet petrol money to him which would be deducted from the sale price. I sent R750.00 via eWallet. This guy never pitched up and ignored all further communication. He has sent me a copy of his alleged I.D of a Devon Wesley Noah and also proof of vehicle license for Devon Wesley Noah. I am not the first to fall prey to this scam but I am lucky and great full that the outcome wasn't worse. I do believe there are other victims that were not so lucky as I am, which ended up paying the full sale amount and received no vehicle. I am doing this to warn others of this mans deceit and scam.
