Please be aware of this scam! We advertised a vehicle on gumtree yesterday and within minutes received a call from “Simon” a truck driver from de Beers mining in Namibia. He was so convincing, he confirmed his got the cash but will collect the vehicle next week, he saw the photos and was happy to pay now and collect later! He wanted us to meet him at Makro in Vanderbijlpark today 6 October at 9:00am but not in the advertised vehicle. He called a few times last night asking that we confirm the minute we leave our house. I searched the number 0714122415 on truecaller but it did not show, I then searched the web and read all about the Namibian truck driver scam!
