KNT Properties is a Hoax

One the 27th of December 2013 I responded to an advert on Gumtree from a certain Kimsley who claimed to be a property agent working for a company, KNT Properties, phone number: 073 659 8598, based in Johannesburg. After I told him that I wanted a place to stay in Auckland Park, he told me that he had one cottage left and I would need to secure it by paying an administration fee, whereupon he would immediately take me to it for viewing.

 I payed this fee at the Melville ABSA branch, scanned the proof of payment, and emailed it to him ( When I called him to ask if he had received it, he did not answer my call. Worried about this sudden change in behavior, I used a different number to which he replied and claimed he was still busy with another client. He never got back to me and I had to call him once again only to find that his phone was switched off.

Then and there I decided to involve the police who unfortunately told me that they could only serve him with a letter of demand to his physical address, which I don't know. All this time, he never once called me or replied to my email to explain his actions.

    Never pay anything until you have viewed the place you want to rent. Use well known agencies.
