    Good day. I was contacted by whom I suspect is the same person or group of people offering me parts as I placed a add on OLX wanting spares. They are from a company MS Auto in Port Shepstone . I was emailed a quotation with FNB banking details and due to me not trusting every peron started enquiring before paying over hard earned cash. I phoned company's in the area and know one ever heard of a David Lester / MS Auto for that matter. Also various google search pages pops up about this persons info as scams, for what it's worth please be aware of these guys. They are very convincing and I nearly paid funds over.

    His detail as follows
    Kind Regards
