He replies that he could not get hold of me and reversed the eft.I do not know if eft's can be reversed. Monday, he calls me and tells me that I must look at my account. I see a cheque deposit into my account and I tell him same. He says he will call me later to discuss it with the bank. The cheque is dishonoured the next day. The quad is suppose to be bought for his Cape Town branch. He uses another person by the name of  Shawn. Contact number 074 245 7981. Shawn is in cohoots with Skalk. I do not release any goods until the funds have cleared in my account.

    We are based in Nelspruit and had a similar experience But we dealt with a person called Quinton tel nr. 074 947 4180. Same Bedrock construction from Grabow tel. nr 021 825 3102 I also spoke to Schalk and another person Johann. They ordered 4 Queen sized beds from us and never paid but fortunately we did not release the beds, and we can also now not get hold of them.
