SCAM ALERT!!!! I need help from anyone who has come across these people or know of them. I posted an advert on Gumtree looking for transport to work and back, I got a response from a woman called Carla, claiming to be from a company called Robertson Carpool & Tours. Her cell number is 0761258644. She asked me to do a deposit of R250 ( instant money ) to secure a seat. Being desperate for a lift club I did the deposit and then I received an email saying that i needed to pay the other R250 so that the SA Dept of transport could finalise my contract. I said that I was off sick and was not able to do it immediately. She then sent me an sms saying that if I can't pay it immediately they will have to cancel my seat and I must find alternative transport. I responded by saying if that was the case then she must refund my deposit and I will do just that. She replied by saying that it was not possible as this is for a cancellation fee. All this happened within a day. I googled this company and it is a scam so people be aware of this scam going around. If anyone can assist with any information or if you recognise the cell number, please help.
