Beware of scammer Daniel Goosen or Local PC repair man

Beware of this scammer apparently named Daniel Goosen. He provides fraudulent company docs and sells electronic devices slightly cheaper so you get interested. Demands that you pay him via spar or money transfers and his excuse is that he can't have money for second hand products in his account. Luckily I got suspicious and due to the fact that I work in a logistics company (he is based in Port Elizabeth) I offered to ask my driver to pick up from him, he said not possible since he is working different provinces everyday. He gives fraudulent details and a fake esquire account so that you can apparently pay for things via him. Many people have reported him unfortunately he doesn't get caught. Please beware as he seems legit but when payment is done he vanishes. There is an ongoing fraud case in Port Elizabeth for him but as usual our police isn't up to scratch. His email address is and he has fraudulent company documents in the name of Local PC repair man / repairman. Please be vigilant as he is extremely good and has scammed one person of R150 000.

    Got scammed as well on for a laptop. Just letting you know he is still out there and using that +27 78 384 5655 number, his phone is off now. He is still using the Daniel Goosen name.

  • Andrea128598 9 Mar 2019, 05:27 PM

    I was just scammed, got to Google a bit late. Is there anything we can do

  • Giovanni 27 Feb 2019, 06:50 PM

    Same as the rest, found a add for a PS4 pro on Junkmail. Daniel Goosen with same pics and lame story but different cell number:+27 78 384 5655. This dude needs to be caught!

  • Sonja126999 19 Nov 2018, 09:03 PM

    Also almost just got scammed buying a playstation 4 . He did not want us to visit his premises nor did he want money to be paid into a bank account.
    it was helopeter and this website that saved us from being scammed

  • Ailen 13 Nov 2018, 11:12 PM

    Found the guy on olx also, his new number is 0780879145, still a active number, someone really needs to do something about this guy, I'd hate to see more people get scammed by him, it's good to be careful when buying stuff that needs to be delivered that why u should always meet In person in a public place

  • Cassie125420 2 Aug 2018, 08:52 PM

    I suppose Mike Bolhuis could catch this guy but he is definitely not gonna do it for free.

  • Cassie125420 2 Aug 2018, 08:44 PM

    I doubt you can track his ip address without a court order, you'll just end up at Cell C/Telkom ect. server locations.

  • Cassie125420 2 Aug 2018, 08:39 PM

    He just popped up on Gumtree. Thanks for this post!

  • Hatebeingconned 14 Jul 2018, 09:44 AM

    @Adnan.Darki - How did you track his location? As he is on line at the moment

  • Hatebeingconned 14 Jul 2018, 12:05 AM

    I got scammed today. I saw an ad on OLX under a Stacy Brink and she then gave me this Daniels number who also sent me the same watsapps and payment terms. I paid the cash and then nothing. The numbers I have from him today are 0780879145 and 0656479977

  • WandaNaude 10 Jul 2018, 09:50 AM

  • Moe100 29 Jun 2018, 10:18 AM

    Guy just scammed me, his number is +27 62 445 0390. Daniel Johannes Goosen. He's still online if someone could track his IP, that'd be great. He needs to be locked up.

  • Calz229 8 May 2017, 01:15 PM

    He is using someone else's documents it's not really Daniel Goosen but someone's identity and company details he has stolen.

    Hi. This guy scammed my son as well. I have been tracking his number. I see today he is now doing a seminar at the boardwalk in PE. His number is 076 112 9239.

    Please contact me on Together we can catch him.

    There are cases currently against him though if this happens to you please do open a case and contact me.

  • Calz229 19 Feb 2017, 01:55 PM

  • Thelaw112 19 Feb 2017, 09:54 AM

    Hi his using a new number ?+27 76 112 9239?

  • derekgal 2 Feb 2017, 09:08 PM

    Guys, please also watch out for Tev's Electronics in KZN ... spread the word - also scammers as they come after the fact and ask for extra delivery fees.

  • Calz229 1 Feb 2017, 08:01 PM

    Please spread this far and wide as he does have a knack of scamming people very well. It's near impossible to catch him. Why don't we deliver a fake box of merchandise for him and catch him receiving it maybe an exchange for a PlayStation or computer parts.

  • Nightwish 1 Feb 2017, 07:38 PM

    Post any case numbers here

  • Nirith1ZA 28 Jan 2017, 07:28 PM

    He is currently advertising on Gumtree and OLX for PS4's and Xbox One's. Asks for details first before making contact via Whatsapp. Apparently has a website for thelocalrepairman.

    If it sounds too good to be true, do some research.

  • Busster 24 Jan 2017, 01:34 PM

    This guy is still active and i am currently talking to him.
    same docs he sends using 079 189 4952.

    We also just got scammed by this guy. What a shame!!!! Luckily we just sent R500. I'm angry at myself for not doing proper research like i usually do. Guess i paid some schoolfees.

  • falcon 25 Nov 2016, 04:33 PM

    hi guys i just found old daniel again hes got an new number that is 0791894952. and like the all said u cant meet him and hes selling stuff that he never even have. so please help to find him. and make him pay.

  • Jones101438 14 Nov 2016, 02:14 PM

    Yip, He's still at it even now (Nov-2016). I was on the verge of giving him money but then came across this forum -Thank you. But take heart guys, this man/women will be caught soon. They always get caught. But we have a responsibility to GET THE WORD OUT, to make people more aware. This is a valuable lesson to me, TO NOT ALLOW MY GREED TO TAKE OVER.

  • Calz229 9 Nov 2016, 08:29 AM

    No point in opening a case, there are many cases opened but police does nothing as usual, the most you can do is probably get a private investigator as this guy seems to work around the fact that there are no police.

  • Jonotwin 7 Nov 2016, 10:48 PM

    In July 2016 i got Scammed from him. R3500 Gone. As a Student that is alot of money.

  • Jonotwin 7 Nov 2016, 10:31 PM

    How do we open a case against this Guy?

  • IHatescammers 4 Nov 2016, 01:45 AM

    I also got scammed by this Daniel Johannes Goosen. As I am at work and very busy I do not always have the time to go into an in-depth background check of the person I am dealing with. I did speak to him on the phone and he answered all my questions, thus, I had no reason not to trust him - He did provide me with some information that I think may be useful: - his "company" web address. Also check out the "contact us" section: - I'll be opening a case with the police. If anyone does manage to find the whereabouts of this person, please contact me by leaving a comment on this thread, if the police does not find him first. All I want is 5 minutes alone with this arrogant piece of shit.

  • Calz229 24 Oct 2016, 03:12 PM

    Yes in fact they are, I have been defrauded before regarding a computer and as i was busy did not even bother to look up credentials, long story short got sent to an address in JHB, phoned police to report about 2 MINUTES AFTER DELIVERY AT SAID ADDRESS unfortunately they said I NEED TO GO TO JOHANNESBURG OFFICE AND REPORT AND OPEN A CASE which is ridiculous as it will take a day to go through at least let alone get to that address, scammers know that police are lazy and take advantage of that as obviously if they came within 15 mins of said address and not complaining that they cant do nothing they would have caught the guy with my computer. After being scammed i did a lot of research and discovered there's thousands of cases but just no one bothered to take it up and that is how it continues. Basically unless you take the law into your own hands the recovery of money and products is so slim it is basically zero. It is the reason why there is such a huge amount of fraud and they just don't get caught, only use different identities and if it is going to be this hard just to get the police to do their job then your money and products are basically gone.

  • Calz229 24 Oct 2016, 12:58 PM

    Tried to get assistance from police, as usual useless, apparently I must open a case in Port Elizabeth when I am in Durban. Glad to see people are aware, please share and circulate this throughout social media and make people aware of what this man can do.

  • Shampoo1014 15 Oct 2016, 07:29 PM

    Please note that I came across this scammer today again and he is still operating.
    So far, he is operating on OLX from what I have found.
    Username: Johan
    Cell Number he contacted me on: +27 79 189 4952
    Advertising in: Ashton, Western Cape

    Please beware of this guy as he is incredibly smooth and dodges your questions very well. Do NOT fall for it.

  • draco 29 Sep 2016, 08:19 AM

    If you can find an ad like that again some how through olx he must be traced with a number quickly.

  • draco 29 Sep 2016, 08:13 AM

    That Daniel Goosen fraud stole 1800 rand please something must be done!
