    I'm a another victim for this scam. Almost exactly the same story and pictures of this nice Bantam for a good price on gumtree. I told Matin Botha (If that is his real name) that this vehicle is for my mother in law and she does not have a lot of money so please if this is a scam he should rather drop the call. He told me that he does not want to sit in jail for a small amount of money and it is not a scam. So it continued were he stated he is in Klerksdorp and somebody from Carltonville is on there way to look at the vehicle. I told him that we are leaving Kempton now and please he has to wait for us. He said first come first serve but if I pay a deposit he will keep it for us. So I paid R3000 via E-wallet. After that he did pick up the phone ones and that was it. Now his phones is of. It happened today 3 March 2018.
