A fake seller trading under: (has many items, search on his contact & name)

Nr: 062 061 0293
I found the add via Junk Mail, all seemed relatively okay. (They covered the surface search to appear legitimate.)
They claimed next day delivery.
The red flags came when courier company contacted me:
"First Express" with email email@example.com.
(This company has so to say no online trail.
They claimed a absurd +/-30% insurance required. Payment via eWallet or Cash Send.
Seller apologized as "forgot" and said its normal.
Then they claimed there was a tax clearance fee of R1200, all of which is apparently to be refunded on delivery.
Payments to them has stopped. This was a plain shipment from PE to Durban, shipping was discussed in original as Fed-Ex/Courier IT. Everything is recorded on email.
