Henry Jali / Gumtree scammer

Hi EveryoneI posted an add on gumtree last wekk Friday 24 Jan 2014. I was selling my IPAD. Not long after I had put it up I received an sms asking if the IPAD is still available. This man said that his son was leaving for overseas & requires the IPAD urgently. He sent me POP, a copy of his ID as well as a sms bank notification (seemed legit).Anyway after not receiving the funds I become suspicious & tried calling him but his phone has been switched off.His email address is jalihenrysa@gmail.com + cell no is 071 838 3155. The street address I sent it to is no. 49 Sollil Court, Corner South + Isipingo Road Belleavue East Johannesburg.This is a warning to all !!!! I learnt the hard way.

    Ranz, how exactly shall we get back what we have lost? I would say go through with and play along. Perhaps pretend to be sending the item but just put something else in the box, the courier service he would want you to use is Time Freight, alert the courier service about the situation, the cops can get involved when the item is delivered to this guy and maybe, just maybe, the others like I who have be cought out by this guy could get justice. How does that sound?

    This guy just sms'd looking to buy something from me... Does anyone want me to pretend to go through with it? Maybe you could retrieve your stuff.

    Hi, the same thing happened to me by the same gumtree scammer, he used the name Hillary Nkosi cell number 0735635134. Sent me paperwork that all seemed legit, he used the same excuse that he bought it for his son that is leaving for overseas, i fell for it given that thi was my first time advertising a sale and i just happened to be soft hearted and naive and with the thought that im not the only person who is forthcoming and trustworthy, boy did i make a huge mistake there and learnt the hard way. by the way, has anyone ever been able to track this a..hole and perhaps retrieve their item or was nothing done about it? cause if not mistaken, this cake can be tracked down using the cell number he used due to rica, and possibly the courier service used. I have notified the courier used that there is a fraudster and be skeptical to anything delivered to that address (49 Sollili Court) i even got the name of the idiot that signed for the package and the time it was signed at. Anyone got any added ideas on how to track down this dude. I swear this guy will wish he didnt cross me when i find him.

    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.
