A 'Victor' phoned wanting to buy my car. He didn't care about the price. He said he worked for de Beers in Namibia and was presently in Rustenburg and could I get there. He would give me cash and then we would proceed to the police station to get an undertaking of legal transfer of ownership.
He said he could not get to Durban as he would be fired. I asked why he could not do an EFT and he said he had no bank account. I asked for his email and he said he did not have one. He asked what I did so I said I was in fraud investigations and he was not fazed at all. He made me phone him because he said he did not have money for credit for his phone. After our first conversation I did some Googling and found that this was indeed a scam. When I phoned him back and confronted him he broke into afrikaans and obviously denied everything......then asked if I had contacts in the SAPS that would be interested in dealing in diamonds!! This dude goes under many different names and mobile numbers.
I told him to come to Durban and meet me with my police buddies and he said he'd get back to me..
Hi mobile is 0785401959.
