    Thanks Roger - where do I go to report them to SARS. I am also doing bit of my own investigation and will keep you informed.

    My advice is as we did, send a copy of your invoice to SARS showing the banking details. They have charged VAT and are using Fake VAT numbers. SARS has the interest, resources and authority with banks to access all info and prosecute/fine once individual that owns the bank account is identified. Also go onto all there adds and report them as fake to the webmaster. This will hamper thier "scam" . I am also convinced once SARS catches up with them they will be prosecuted fully and fined for every cent they have scammed.

    Unfortunately I was succered into this as well last week - I transferred the money and tried to get hold of them as they promised delivery on Friday. I did send e-mails, none of the phones are working and my bank just said they can not promise to get the money back - what do I do.

    Yes 100% personal experience, have reported to SARS,ABSA and MWEB are tracking their ISP's. A basic phonecall to their numbers will confirm ,If answered (Very Seldom)say that you are awaiting your delivery and phone will be put down immediately. If answered and ask for Chris and say you are enquiring will set you up like they did my child. Note Springs address is FAKe as To is UK and East London Address.

    Is this for real? I have colleagues that were thinking of buying stuff from his site. Is it your personal experience? Sorry to ask.
