Car Scam Artist Johnny 0719624296


Johnny 0719624296 advertised a BMW 750 for R130000 in Port Elizabeth. I contacted the man, offered him R100000 and he said, he is happy with the amount. I'm staying in Cape Town, I made all the necessary arrangements with Johnny to view the car on Saturday, 01 feb15 and bought the tickets to PE. Late on Friday afternoon he sent me an sms, telling me, there was another buyer, if I pay a refundable deposit of R5000, he will keep the car. I checked Johnny out on the Internet, was advertising quite a lot of cars and the company he works for, Inter Africa, looked also fine to me.  I paid the deposit. On Saturday morning I flew to PE and waited for Johnny to pick me up at the Airport like agreed. 5 hours later I booked into a hotel and booked the flight back for Sunday. Then Johnny contacted me and explained, there was Auditors at the dealer ship and he could not help me that day and he was very sorry and he told me, he would send the car to Cape Town. A driver, his name is Moses, cell no 0603910116, phoned me and asked, where he has to drop off the car. I sent him my adress. The next day Moses phoned me and told me, the Police stopped him and there was a R4000 fine. I phoned Johnny and complained about the situation, Johnny asked me nicely to send Moses the money and we can deduct it from the purchase price. After a couple of days the car was still not in Cape Town and I phoned Johnny and Moses what's going on. There was a couple of stories about paperwork and some other car which was also on the Truck and they were looking for an additional R 6000. I complained a lot to Johnny and Moses about it, but Johnny assured me, if I would pay Moses the R 6000, I would receive the car the next morning. I'm still waiting...... Johnny advertises a lot of cars on OLX, Ananzi and other webpages. Watch out, he makes a life with the money, other people work for.
