Vehicles For All - Scam

A company called Vehicles For All made an offer to purchase my car for R75 000.00 in response to my ad on gumtree. They told me that they arrange financing for black listed clients and that they needed my car to get it assessed for financing. They collected my car on the 11th December 2012 and said I would be paid within 5 days.After following up nerous times I received a letter from African Bank confirming that payment would be made on the 03rd January 2013.I called African Bank on the 07th January 2013 as payment had not been received and was informed that the letter was fraudulent.The people who had my vehicle refused to return it and said that they were trying to arrange financing again. Finally I went to the police station and they were ordered to retun my car which I received on the 29th January 2013.I then readvertised my car and a lady contacted me stating that she had purchased it from them. She had paid a deposit and was making monthly payments. She was lead to believe that she could purchase it on HP.They sold my car to someone else without having paid for it.Please be careful when selling vehicles.
