    Sorry for your loss. I am just glad I published my loss, and I was just disapointed in myself that I did not trust my gut feeling when he pushed us to send the ipad. It is sad that innocent people like us is scammed like this

    This man now goes by the name Roy Jele and he used the same number 071 917 7456 and fax number that's how I came to this site page. He also scammed me with wanting to purchase my ipad on gumtree and used same story about his son going overseas and needing the item urgently. He sent a credible looking email and sms from fake nedbank account. His so called driver's name was Lastone Mwanza and he had me send it to a postnet in Randburg. It is very disappointing when people use others good nature to their advantage. Be warned!! And if any one can get the police to trace them via this number 071 917 7456 please do.

    This guy goes by the name of Kevin Khumalo now. Tried to scam me but I refused to sent him the galaxy S4 until the bank cleared the cheque he paid into my account! I googled the fax number he gave me and found this site!

  • Ludwig 25 Feb 2014, 02:41 PM

    He is busy with a transaction with me. Also the same story. Luckily I googled his name. His number is 071 917 7456. Will keep him on a line and see what happens. Definitely not going to send the parcel.

    Henry new number= 071 971 7456. He is expecting a Galaxy Note 3 delivery address from me, be smart and he will meet you in Rosebank / Sandton for a pickup.

  • Username5570 29 Jan 2014, 08:52 AM

    Hi All I have been conned. He phoned me for my IPAD that was for sale on gumtree. He told me that his son is going overseas. Anyway I received the POP & his ID as well as an sms. It all seemed legit but after a few days of the receiving the funds I tried calling him & his phone is off. What is the best thing for me to do ? I have his address which i courier the IPAD to.

  • EScam Alert 28 Jan 2014, 09:30 AM

    I've been following these scamsters for some time.They tried to con me last year, just using a different name. It's all the same people - offering to send a driver to collect it or will arrange postage. Unless the money is in the account and you're able to transfer it out, don't release the goods... If you're uncertain, contact me on and include all information you have.

  • Fanie7 3 Jan 2014, 07:34 PM

    This henry got a SA ID Book.Beware.

  • Fanie7 3 Jan 2014, 07:29 PM

    Yip,this guy send me also a conformation of payment. The sadness is that Nedbank don't want to confirm with me that the copy of payment is the real thing.Luckly i'm not a client. Sorry henry.

    O yes and he used and 071 4030 728.

  • Melissa10 3 Dec 2013, 03:35 PM

    This guy just tried to do the same with me. I advertised my camera and accessories on OLX for sale. He responded in less than 30min. Kept on phoning me and said he can do the EFT straight away and we must deliver tonight at East Gate Shopping Centre in Bedfordview and he will deposit R200 extra for 'delivery'. Send me a POP from Nedbank (Double checked against a relative of mine) and it was fake. He sent me Nedbank's proof of Payment (Which I also compared against another one - also fake), his ID and his Proof of Residence. Also gave me the story that his son is going overseas tonight and he need it asap. Luckily my husband was more clever. Please stay away and double check before falling for this guy.

  • Henry6 18 Nov 2013, 10:39 AM

    Jip same guy same number did the same thing to me 15 minutes ago!

  • Siyabonga 6 Nov 2013, 11:29 PM

    This guy just tried the same thing with me, however what I don't understand is if he is using the same number then why hasn't he been caught..

  • Jonathan8 23 Sep 2013, 03:42 PM

    He just tried buying my iphone - gave me exactly the same story. Sent through the proof of payment and id (which is clearly faked). The Nedbank logo wouldnt be out of focus and the sms notification has spelling mistakes.
