Online sales scam

This company is a fraud. In Tech Electronics (Ahmed as per the add on Gumtree). I ordered and paid R15130.00 for a Hisense 65K680UAD LED Tv. And still have not received my goods. Their MO is after receiving a tracking number from another fraudulent courier company Zoom Logistics Services, they inform you that they accidentally packed an extra tv in the parcel due for your delivery and offer a huge discount on the extra item in the parcel and expect you to pay for it then they will arrange delivery. The courier company then demands a courier fee payable by the receiver although according to In Tech Technologies the delivery is free. They then withhold the delivery until the money is paid via e wallet to a cell phone number. After numerous days the item was still not delivered and I was requested to send my TV license, still no delivery, then another email requesting R755.00 that is due to SARS as the parcel was now held by customs and duties were due on a parcel that supposedly came from Port Elizabeth. I refused to pay the SARS money and offered to collect the parcel from the courier warehouse where I would on viewing my goods transfer or pay the money in cash but they refused. They demanded the money up front and all communication seazed after that. In Tech technologies gives a address in port Elizabeth 82 Cape road, Newton Park, Port Elizabeth. This address is for another business called Ability and A-Bay stationers. In Tech technologies uses the following e mail address and contact number and website:, +27784002166,
Zoom Logistics services have a and e mail address:
They used these cell phone numbers for the e wallets to be done: +27616547107 and +27628832151.
It has been more than 3 weeks and I still have not received my tv and am R15980.00 out of pocket.
