Mxit Exchange/Gumtree and Junkmail

Hi All Mxit Exchange or Gumtree and Junkmail users, just a warning. If you place a add on one fo these sited, there is a man contacting you with different names and nr, he normaly use a afrikaans name like Deon. He are always willing the buy the items, for his mother or son or daughter who ever the item you are selling will suite, he then offers to pay you the amount you want, but in EFT, as he is on a farm in Limpopo, you can only deliver after he made the EFT. U get the sms from your bank money has been paid in, if you then phone your bank, they will tell you the money has been placed on hold, or the next day that the money has been reversed, so please don't think the money is in your account, unless you have verified this with your bank.

Is there any way to trace the number as I do have peace order against them and now they are harrassing me through mxit invites. I ahve laid a complaint in court and will really appriciate your help. Please help.

    I have been a victim of this, on Gumtree. The guy kept contact with me on sms and just before delivery he said that his son had reached his maximum limit so couldnt give me cash and would do an EFT. He used a fake ID number which i managed to track down, and the Person whose ID it is says he has conned people 3 times using his ID. Is there any way that one can trace the number he called from?

    Good morning, Thank you for letting people know about this problem. But if this has any involvement on MXit Xchange we will be able to assist. If this has taken place on Xchange please email with the details you have so we can investigate this further. Please put the email to attention Matt, once I have received it I will be in contact. It is rather unfortunate that we do have individuals scamming for money but action can be taken, to stop any further issues occurring.
