    Martin Botha is active in the Western Cape now via Gumtree.
    Reported today.
    Still with the same fake ID and the same fake car registration.

    Martin Botha tried scamming us today. He advertised on OLX with all the same info and documents. He seems unstoppable. Hope the law enforcement can catch up with him.
    So many people must have fallen for this. Fortunately we found this information.
