I was scammed of R16 850 by Patience Zambuko from 14 crystal gardens, 4 fouriesburg road, Rooihuiskraal, Centurion, cell number 0783555887. I met her on facebook where she gives the impression that she is a God fearing mother of three boys which is why I thought I could trust her. She claimed she could help me stock for my business since she had suppliers from China for the goods I was looking for. She fronts a business called Pat Kloset which I have since picked up on instagram and facebook and goes by the name Patience Thelma on facebook. I noticed she has since removed me as her friend from facebook. probably because she thought I would expose her on facebook.
She told me she was going to China in 3 days and that if I gave her money she would bring me samples of what her suppliers could provide for my business. I managed to raise R16 850 since it was short notice and gave it to her via EFT. I have all the proofs of payment except for the portion of R1000 I think which I gave to her in cash. She assured me she would return in a week and bring me back stock samples for my business.
Needless to say, this never happened. She has given me one story after the other, too many to mention with regards to the stock samples she was supposed to bring me. It's been almost 3 months and obviously there is no stock and she clearly conned me of the money I gave her. I googled her name and found out that I am not the only person she has scammed. When I asked her about the other claims she said people were just hating on her. She obviously does this for a living since I am not the only person she scammed. She also seems to move houses and change her number a lot, probably to get away from the people she scams so I don't know if she is still at the same address or telephone number. But just be aware of her. She clearly alters her scam tactic depending on her victims so she probably uses different stories to con different people.
The last I heard from her she sent me an sms to say she had had a 'breakthrough' and was going to give me my money back. Unfortunately she has said the very same thing many times before and she still has not given me a cent of my money back!
