    I had the EXACT SAME thing JUST happen to me now. I posted an ad on Gumtree, this "Hope" person said that they will meet me at a Sasol garage (Burger King just next to King Edward School, along Louis Botha Ave), then asked me to send my banking details and email address for proof payment. I told this person that I will not do that and rather meet at Menlyn Mall or Brooklyn, to which "Hope" said: "I'm in Johannesburg, send your details, I will pay and arrange a courier to fetch it". Immediately I searched for this cell phone number (0607063412) and found this website. I found "Hope's" urgency to be a bit suspicious. (19:02PM 20August 2015).

    This guy tried his luck with me this morning. Same number but the name is now "Hope"

    I got robbed by this guy last week Friday. Reported the case to the police, got phoned today by the so called 'investigator' only to be told that I should not have done business in this way, and that all the information I gave them was useless, as they cannot trace the phone numbers. It's aggravating to find that our police force is so pathetic... but honestly don't know what else I expected...

    This guy has done this to me to he is using 0730912120 and the friend is using 0768115490

  • Roslyn 30 Jul 2015, 02:34 PM

    This idiot just tried the same thing with me, but with my GumTree add. M.O stays the same and the proof of payment from Standard bank just looked suspicios. His new number is 0607063412. good luck!

  • kylieboi 27 Jul 2015, 10:23 AM

    This guy just contacted me to buy stuff from me. Luckily I have almost fallen for this before with another person so I know better. Number he is using at the moment is +27 73 091 2120. Please dont let this guy rob you be smart. Cash or wait for money to clear before you hand anything over!

  • Wynand11 22 Jul 2015, 01:45 PM

    Jaco also contacted me just now. number 0730912120. a friend of Zuma it seems. Be careful guys. He sent me a POP made out for more than i asked for and tomorrows date... LOL...

  • Wynand11 22 Jul 2015, 11:48 AM

    Gerald Zuma also sent me a POP rather quick from Standard Bank. His current number that he is using now is as follows. 0607063412. Be careful guys...

  • EvR 15 Jul 2015, 02:30 PM

    This Gerald Zuma wants me to deliver a 5 ton generator worth R330k to him at the Joburg fresh Produce Market. Still uses the nr 0791308164 and email zumag8@gmail.com. Be careful guys!

  • Renee2 14 Jul 2015, 12:48 PM

    Was contacted by Steven 083 518 6457. At 11:04 I told him I prefer cash because bank payments can be faked. And he stopped sending me sms's. 12:09 Jacobs - 073 091 2120 contacted me to here if I still have the phones. Good luck to everyone who just want to use olx for what it was created for.

  • Jeandre3 13 Jul 2015, 01:46 PM

    Lucky I googled the number, just placed an add on OLX to sell a Lenovo Flex 2 laptop and almost immediately got a call from a James phone number 0835186457 who will send me an ID and payment confirmation to buy my laptop. Sorry about everyone else who got scammed but thanks for letting everyone else know. Is there something we can do to have this guy arrested?

  • Username2074 9 Jul 2015, 04:17 PM

    Tried to get 5 laptops valued at R45000 from me now. Sent POP from Standard Bank. More details about this prick. Jacob Abrahams abrahamsjacob2@gmail.com 0730912120 And a plus.... I got his address 4 Marion Heights cnr Bond and St johns road Houghton
