    Was contacted by a Jacob Moloi to buy my Playstation4. Also send his ID, proof of residence and fake Standard Bank proof of payment. I suspected something is not adding up because he "paid" all the money including extra money for shipping. I requested the ID, Proof of Payment and Proof of residence. This was send to me and I Googled his email address only to find that he has done exactly the same to other people as well. Hope he gets arrested. Luckily we haven't lost anything.

    I was also just recently scammed by Jacob Moloi who had sent me his proof of residence and ID copy. I received a bogus proof of payment sms which looked legit but when i phoned ABSA this morning to investigate I realised it was fake. He now has my PS3 and there is no way of contacting him. If anybody finds out any information on this piece of shit please let me know. I am reporting it to the police.

    I had my motorbike advertised with a trailer. a Jacob Moloi phone me and said he is interested. he paid in full with deposit slip and i even received an sms saying that the money was deposited. Came to collect the bike and that was it. something said i should check the transaction and the bank said it was a fake transaction. If i find this guy i will promise you that he will never walk or eat again.

    There is a man called Mark Pretorius 072 373 5421, saying he is moving to Cape Town and needs to sell his Sprite Swing Caravan 2002 model for R35000. This is a scam. The wants a cash transfer due to him having an offshore account and that you have to pay the deposit cause there are 7 other people interested in the caravan.

    A guy named Ian Wood is conning people on olx. He has to adverts, one for a 550D canon camera bundle and the other for ef300 lense. I see that he has done this before (Anja's post above) he scammed my fiance and I with R4000. He gives his "address" and everything making you trust him, giving you the option to come and view what he is selling. We deposited money into his bank account. Any one have any ideas as to how we could retract this payment? (I know the chances are very slim)

  • Jacques26 26 Aug 2014, 02:34 PM

    Speed/fast payment with a cell number and a pin. NEVER do this. He's a fraud

  • Jacques26 26 Aug 2014, 02:33 PM

    He will request you to do a fast/speed payment. He's a low life fraud thats conning people for a life. He's currently under investigation and people should post if they were victims to build a strong case. I will contact you should you require?

  • Jacques26 26 Aug 2014, 11:09 AM

    Hi Everyone. If a deal looks to good to be true it is!!!!!!! These fraudsters strive on people paying in deposits and then disappearing. A caravan will be advertised at an amazing price and then the fraudster will request a deposit to keep it for you. Believe me you will not get hold of him again. DON'T PAY DEPOSITS if you can't view it first you will never see your money again or heard from him again.

    The man who posted this ad is a fraud, call him and he'll ask for deposit. then he'll tell you the car hit potholes and needs new tyers. all which he will deduct should you make the payment. dont fall for it, he sounds like an honourable old man. but he is the biggest fraud on olx. the most recent link he posted is: His name is Wandile Zulu, and his account number is 202662527 its an FNB account. dont fall for it, he doesnt own the cars he claims to be selling.

    Please dont buy any trailers from a company called Mahoxo business in UPINGTON. These guys advertize 3 bike trailers on olx for verry cheap. Luckaly I am not stupid and asked some one to check out the adress that they give once you enquire the trailers. The adress is a residential adress and not a warehouse.
