Appliance Guru - Fraud with repairs

Under the name of Appliance Guru and the phone number 082 5798129 a fraudulent person is working.

After calling him for a dishwasher repair, he immediately quotes his prize, which was R950 for fixing it. This should already made me suspicious.

The guy turned up the next day, and "repaired" the dishwasher, unfortunately I could not watch him do it, as I had other people in the house at the same time.

He demonstrated me that the water is now pumped up, told me that i need to pay him cash, and that he will send his invoice via Email. I was really stupid to follow that, but he told me there is a 1 yr warranty and that he will be back if its not working in no time.

Actually the dishwasher was never repaired, it didnt work at all after he left. I called him several times, wrote messages, tried to leave messages on his voicemail, which was for some reason full
-> never any response

Until today he is not repsonding at all, the R950 are lost!
I would like to spare this experience other people, so do not engage with him.
