Vorster Trading / E.S.P 45 Trading / Container Smart

We followed up on an advert for hoverboards with a company called E.S.P. Trading. There was a premises where we could view the stock and all seemed legit. So, we transferred R25,000 and were told we could collect as soon as the funds showed in their account.

Long story short - no hoverboards received and the premises has been abandoned.

I Googled the company registration no and VAT number only to discover that they are fraudulently using ANOTHER company's details. We have alerted this company and they have taken the matter up with SARS Fraud Department.

We googled the cell phone number.... oh wow! The number of scams these people are involved in is unbelievable. From micro-loans, to puppies to containers to hoverboards, etc.
