Eurgent Delivery and Third party fraud

Hi there,

There is a company which posts fake ads on OLX and gumtree Normal 0 false false false EN-ZA X-NONE X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin-top:0cm; mso-para-margin-right:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:10.0pt; mso-para-margin-left:0cm; line-height:115%; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi; mso-fareast-language:EN-US;} supposedly selling electronic goods. The goods on offer range from Apple computers and iPads to digital cameras. The company I dealt with (they change their company name and cell numbers but trust me they are the same people) was connect cellz and at the time they had a legitimate website which has since been taken offline. These people offer good prices on their products and request a deposit before they ship the goods. That was mistake number one on my part, never ever give a deposit online as you can never get that money back. Once the deposit was made they gave me a tracking number for my parcel which I could check on the following site, which turns out to be a fake courier service. Remember that name Eurgent Delivery Express, they aren't legit. My second mistake was to pay the courier company import duty and insurance fees. The alarm bells should have been ringing but I really trusted these people as they were very friendly. I should have know better as they didn't have South African accents, I'm pretty sure the lady Shila is Chinese and the delivery guy sounds Nigerian, he goes by the name of Mike or Gator or Paul but it's all the same guy.
In total I've lost over R20000 due to my ignorance and having faith in humanity.

If anyone has been through a similar ordeal please email me at  so we can expose these fraudsters
