House Renting Fraud

A man by the name of Dion Muller Damens, claims he is the owner of the
house at 10 Louis Botha Street, Beyerspark, Boksburg. His add was on Olx for a 3 bedroom house with swimming pool for R7000.00 per month. When you call him on 063 442 9784, he sounds very polite. When I phoned him to query the availability of this house, he informed me that he was waiting for a final answer from other viewers, but when I told him I can pay the deposit and rent amount in advance, he said he would send me the contract immediately. This was without even viewing the property. He then emailed photos of the house inside. (Which is not how this house looks inside). He then kept on phoning me to inform me that there were other people interested in the house and can pay him immediately. I told him I would do the transfer for the deposit immediately. When he texted his banking details, the account holder name and the name he put on the contract were not the same. I asked him about this, his excuse was that all his accounts are in this name. Dion Daniel Damens. The name he used on the contract was Dion Jakob Muller Damens. My husband had a feeling this was a scam and went to the house to speak with the tenants. He spoke with the owner of the house, she was very concerned and frustrated with this situation, as she has been overwhelmed with strangers knocking on her door to view the property. She has been the owner of this property for the last 10 years, and is not selling or renting the property. Dion kept on phoning me to query if the deposit was made. My husband finally spoke to him and told him that he was at the property and spoke to the owner & that he is a scammer. This young man has scammed a lot of people out of their hard earnings and pretending to own properties and wild life. He puts is ads up on Olx and the next day they are removed. Be careful people.
