I received a telephone call from a lady called Jabulile Sibiya, her fake e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. She claimed that she is from the Department of transport and she got my details from their database. She told me about an RFQ that the department has out for Fuliotic Cylinders and they place orders for these things twice a month. She needs me to submit a quote. She sent me an "official" RFQ document with a coat of arms and details of what is required. At the time I did not suspect a thing. I didn't even pay careful attention to the e-mail address.
I googled Fuliotic Cylinders and only ONE company was listed:- www.bluetrack.co.za I contacted this company and spoke to a lady called Nicole. I then requested a quote for these Fuliotic Cyclinder and the quote that returned was for R 121 000.
To cut a long story short, I placed the order but only paid R110 000. I got confirmation from Nicole that the order was "delivered" the following day. Even Jabulile Sibiya contacted me to say everything was delivered. I awaited payment and only when the payment was being delayed did I start to panic. Only now do I go back and check the e-mail address and discovered that its false. I checked the all domains using
