Vehicle sale Scam for transfer of money


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.

    Thank you!!!!!! God bless you for making this guy known..... Glad my friend told me to Google him... Which help me to change my mind in a split second about that car.... And he still uses the same story from a year ago.... I would have lost a 1000 just 5mins ago. My heart goes out to those who were trapped into this, I would have been one of you if it wasn't for this report. Thank you.

    Hi all, Please can you all advise on your area locations so I can try and pin point his area of scamming. I am from Cape Town. Somebody has to open up an actual case at your nearest police station. As much information about him is needed.

    My nephew just got scammed by the ass. we need to do something about him otherwise he is going to carry on doing what his doing. I suggest we open a case against him. we know how he looks and have his ID number, which will be easier to catch him. he is taking advantage cause no one is doing anything.

THANKS guys! This same car seems to appear on a few sites with the same pics but different locations. DEFINATELY a scam!I @Shane, are you serious?? Either you are blind or you are in partnership with this RAT!

    We were caught in the same situation today, he told us he stays in plettenbergbay and we are in Gordonsbay. He said that we must transfer R1000 then he will meet us half way. We drove all the way to swellendam and he never pitched up. He needs to be locked up

  • Username7670 20 Feb 2015, 01:49 PM

    Hi there, Stephen that is right he is and he was prepared to drive the vehicle down to me. The FRAUD needs to stop and his adds needs to be blocked and removed from OLX, so that others do not fall pray to the scam. Stephen I understand your anger as I was there.Out of interest, how much did he scam you for?

  • Username7857 19 Feb 2015, 10:19 AM

    Hi I have just been scammed on the exact same car. just that it was from Plettenbergbay. I really don't want to swear but the words that I am thinking off is not good enough for people like this
