Internet Fraud


I react to an advert on Gumtree for a Cockatoo bird for sale. This person going by the name of Jacques Marius Selby assured me that he is a breeder and he will sent my bird from Johannesburg to George via flight with Mango. So after the first payment he took the "bird" to the airport "Mango" sent me an email confirming he booked in the bird and cage and toys etc. but the cage he provide is not sufficient for George weather and they do have the cage but i need to pay in more money as deposit for the renting of the cage and when the bird arrives a get the money back. Paid the second installment and so Mango phoned me very friendly confirming bird is checked in and flight details and time i can collect at airport in George. .... Only to  get there and there's no bird and Mango air flight didn't even fly on a Friday and Saturday. R6200 down the drain. When i tried do phone him the phone was off. but after an week i phoned again and he answered. how can you stop him because he is stealing from a lot of people.
