MXIT Lift Club

My sister advertised for me for a lift club, as I am using my moms car to work.  So she got a reply to her advert on mxit from a La Rochelles Transport a woman by the name of Claire Ratcliffe's. So I called her and she told me that they are part of the South African Department of Transport and I would need to make a transfer of R200 to secure my seat.  She even told me its not a scam after I researched it on the web.  But sadly I still got scammed.  I feel like such an idiot.

    Thanks Shurinsa and Mike, maybe if you have mxit, you should report the incident to them, possibly they might be able to track the advertiser, unfortunately my sister did it for me, but I believe that she reported it to them.

    Jacqui and Shurinsa, I too have had the same thing happen to me, the scammer said her name was Teressa, it was the exact story as yours, her number was different though and when I did some reseach on the number I had and the number you gave above, the same guy comes up each time...Clinton Mills from Cape Town, now to me it seems that he must be involved or it is a friend/relative of his. Please post if you get any further information, thank you.
