Internet Chicken Eggs For Sale Gumtree/OLX

I boughtsome eggs from an Alli Mohamed. He then sends me his banking details for adeposit of R108 for 15doz eggs as we have confirmed per email. We I havedeposit that he then said that the financial manager said I have to take notless then 2box of 30dozen eggs per box. I made again a deposit of R324. Thenafter a few attempts to get hold of him he said I can send my couriers. Butbefore they got to the place they have already left for the day. So I have topick it up the next day. So the next morning I received an email that they saidI cant send my couriers, they have to deliver. That is when I get more suspectedabout them. I told them I going to the police and will go to the bank andclosed there account. I have been to the police and called FNB to close the account.Just need to inform other people to be careful about this. Had flag them ongumtree for scam, but it look like gumtree don’t care about its users. They arestill advertising.

    i fall for the same scam as well. Ali Mohammed posted an ad on Gumtree, i called to make an order and he insisted that i make a deposit to his a 50% of the order amount. i then asked for his company/store name, but i was reluctant to give the name. i asked if i can come to his store and he said yes, gave me Rainbom Chicken's address in Rustenburg. i drove all the way there and when i called him when i was there, he first picked up and said he was on his way and nver turned up.
