Beware of Car Sales People on Gumtree

Just though i would let other South Africans Now, I met a guy on gumtree who had a Ad for Car finance. After speaking with him i was told that he has a contact a transunion who can temporarily clear my name so that i can qualify for car finance, this service costs R2500. I paid the R2500 only for him to Disappear, he will no longer take my calls and does not respond to any form of communication. He had ads on gumtree which ended with "Listed or low credit score clients welcome" He used the Name Sibusiso Khumalo email, cell number 0848533035. He now uses the name Solomon on Gumtree with exactly the same cars as before, his number is now 0623160650 the modes operandi is exactly the same, i had one of my friend phone him and he said he has a "contact" at transunion who can clear his my friends name but this time for R3500. I have alerted Gumtree to this but they don't seem interested because they removed only the one ad and the fraudster just put it up again. Please steer clear of this thief  he is a fraud and targeting financially vulnerable people, If you do not qualify for vehicle finance through the proper channels then just wait until you do.
