    This forum just saved me a lot of money that I cannot afford to lose. Thank you to everyone contributing and I am really sorry for everyone's losses.

    ROY LOCHNER is the person behind my scam. I picked up his name in the comments. I would really actually like to make contact with anyone scammed by him to find out what the outcome was.

    Basically the same thing happened to me that happened to most, but after paying him the R1500 to fetch the car from Durban, I grew suspicious when the first story for more money came in and I traced his ID number off the bank account he gave me to deposit the money in. Googled him and stumbled onto this forum.

    I've just fallen victim to a car scam, it's something that happened just yesterday. I was scammed by these people calling their "dealership" BROADWAY AUTO and using the following contact details; cellphone number: 0616652462/0712111233 & email address: josephmolise@consultant.com and contact persons are, a very mysterious, "George" who's got one of those foreign African accents, "Peter Walter" and a "Martin Miquel". Upon approval of this so called "deal" i was then told to deposit a deposit sum of R2800 to get the car registered onto my name and for delivery purposes and like anyone else who's been unfortunate enough to be a victim in this scam i then deposited the money to an ABSA account with number: 9299618063 account holder: Miss CL Khobo. These people use other people's desperation to their advantage and hurtful and unfair. I should have done thorough research on these people/person and should have involved law authorities from the start. I know i might not get back my money but my main concern at the moment is of my particulars that i sent to them. I'm glad about one thing though that no delivery of the car was ever made to me or because I now know for sure that it would have been a stolen car and right now i'd be faced with something much worse. I have involved the SAPS but if anyone else can assist me further on how to protect my details from being used in further crimes please let me know

    Guys be on the lookout for a lady named Loura Brown & Dr. George. They say they work for a dealer named FREEWAYSAUTO. They give an address of Harrismith in Free state but dont exist. Wanted me to pay for admin & transport fees(R3500.00). When I told them I'll pay when they deliver the repossesed vehicle they hanged up and never heard of them again. Funny thing is they use MFC & Nedbanks stamps and application forms. I could hear that they foreigners and knew this deal is to good to be true.

    Hi Everyone, I have been reading your comments regarding the scams going around. I have been dealing with this company called Broadways Consultant today regarding their adds on taking over instalments, I have sent them my documents, and was approved by affordability, however wants me to pay R3 500 upfront for the administration fee, I replied to them that I cant pay money upfront for a car I have not seen. I tried to google them with no luck. Does anyone know them, they apparently have offices all over, they also do not sound like local people. How can i findout if they are actually the real deal or scammers. the advertising companies should actually investigate the companies or persons advertising on their websites to protect the consumers against scams.

    You are all idiots and deserve to be scammed how can you deposit such large funds into an individuals bank account? especially one that you've never seen or met? First of all this is an illegal practice and if you should take this to court you have absolutely no recourse.

    Hi Pushy, Did you manage to get a car from those people in Harrismith - 16 Motel street. They have also sent me an approval but now they are trading as Age Motors and the lady's name is Joy? They want me to make a deposit so they can deliver the car?

  • Raphael2 14 Nov 2014, 01:14 PM

    Hi All I Have been involved in an incident were i got hold of a repo car company in Durban. They supposedly work in conjunction with MFC ( MOTOR FINANCE CORPORATION) The vehicle that i wanted was a bmw 135i coupe that had been repossessed. The dealership said in order to qualify i must deposit r40000 into their account so mfc can approve my finance due to low credit score. I then did that. I have ever since been having a bad feeling and that i was scammed as they told me to book a flight to durban then after i did they said the documents will only be ready 2 days after that. So as you may have worked out, i lost my flight to durban and the money went to waste. They keep in contact with me but keep sayin they are going to buy me the ticket for the coming week on the expense.... I think this is a total scam and i was crooked properly. I have been to the bank to freeze the account i deposited money into so we can investigate the situation. These people are in Durban and claim to be in Hillcrest. The people's names are MRS GOVENDER CELL number 078 208 2858 and NISHA 084 460 3855. I am in need of any one out there that can assist to try get these fraudulent criminals

    gumtree, trovit, ananzi, olx, etc are full of these scams. Do Not and I repeat DO NOT SEND any ID, Work Address, Paylips, 3 Months banking statements, proof of address over the internet to a person without confirming that they have a registered business you can walk into. Dont send money for any processing of finance also be on the lookout on bogus websites. Scrutinize the spelling of the sites and if the email is "xyz@gmail.com" then you need to also worry because they are untraceable.

    I feel a bit lucky here. I got a notification that a company(Streamlineautomobile) has an Audi A3 available for taking over payments. I then called the number 0840496777 which belonged to a so called Susan Wiliam. First a guy answer claiming to be Susan and I still asked is that really your name coz Susans supposed to be a female. Anyway a few days thereafter I received a call from Susan(the female). I was confused. I was supposed to be R2450 as admin and deliver fee for a VW Polo GTi and R1450 x 60months thereafter. Bargain, right? Reading all your comments, I feel relieved that I didnt go ahead as this whole deal just screamed at me: SCAM!!!SCAM!!!SCAM!!!

Who will the title holder be on the registration papers)? Why a deposit? If it is a finance/lease, then which bank will be assessing the credit? These are some of the questions you need to be clear on. There are process in financing a second hand car - if the proposed transaction does nt follow those processes, then there is malice or bad faith - WALK AWAY!!!!!! The later statement applies to friends and family as well. Regards

    I too was scammed into giving my car to a company in Bloemfontein, this guy took my car but every month came up with excuses when it came to payment, and payment was later and later each month. Suddenly he just stopped paying all together, leaving me with my car installments now being in arrears, and me struggling to get the car back to the client in CPT who this guy leased my car out too. These guys claiming to be able to rent out ur car for safely with no worries, and you having you installments on time every month are a load of scum and bullshitters. Please don't be fooled into this. I was and now I am left with a damaged name and an arrears which I cannot afford to pay.

    Saturday night a guy "Ignatius Grobler" contacted my husband about a comment we left on some site to take over payments. Said he was a lawyer in Bloubergstrand. Apparently works at Grobler Attorney's in Brooklyn Piketberg. Said the owner of the bakkie passed away, owner's wife is to old to drive and all needs to go on an auction, his "daughteer Yvette" saw my ad and they wanted just the petrol and tollgate monies from CT to Pretoria. Sunday i paid R1500 and i am supposed to pick the bakkie up at 11am today (7 Jan 2014) but now he said we can only pick it up at 12 to my husband. I called the firm Monday "grobler attorney's, belongs to a Woman not a man and he is not working there. They are also the only company with that surname in piketberg. This is Ignatius's number: 0712316796. If i find him he will never do this again. Please let me know if you were scammed this way. Also, i had to pay the monies to checkers.

    I was conned today by two ladies saying they are selling a Toyota Corolla 2010 automatic registration is ND. They said deposit is R18000, but wanted 50% deposited to a STD Bank account of EZ Nkosi, who will then release documents for the car. The car was supposed to be delivered in Durban Harbour on 9 March 2013. I waited from the morning as the lady by the name of Linda was flying from JHB with documents to meet me, but never showed up. Her number she used to call me on was 0792645560, and he 'boss's number is. 0768984402. After the delivery time they promised both their phones were off, until now. I'm so stressed and angry. In a way that I couldn't carry myself to SAPS to open a case. They said they sell cars repossessed by ABSA bank from people who have failed paying. First R9000 was done by EFT and the second R9000 was a cash deposit, all made to the following account: EZ NKOSI, STD BANK, ACC 10039987610, branch code 051001. Please help!

    Margaret, am trying to find a way of reporting him to the police as a group maybe they will see how serious this is. Is he staying at the address in Bloemfontein?

  • Margaret Muller 15 Oct 2012, 02:37 PM

    Same situation with us, we paid Norman R10 000 dep into his absa acc for a nissan suv. We went and made a inquiry at SAPS regarding his address in Bloem and Absa acc did exist. Also in the process of laying fraud caharge against him.

  • Username2536 9 Oct 2012, 04:06 PM

    I was adviced to write an affidavit so that I can get his details from ABSA bank and also from his cellphone network. I am still to try it. If talking to him does not help, I will go to Small Claims Court.
