Melvin Gumtree Ad

This person named Melvin posts ads on Gumtree. He then asks for a deposit via his bacnk account or E-Wallet and then disappears. Please find his details below:Account number he provides:M M ConstanceAcc #: 753666510Branch Code: 007154I have 2 contact numbers for him: 0760614146 and 0747737658His e-mail address is: delmabeng.mach@gmail.comHe goes by the name Melvin and claims to be in Kimberely at the moment.

    I have just been defrauded by the same people. I paid R2500 for a Maine Coon kitten and when I arrived in Durban to collect it, I was told they had had to go to the Cape on urgent family business. They said they would fly the kitten to me but I was then told I had to rent a crate for the cat for R4700. Like an idiot I believed them. Please be aware. I am taking steps against this scam.

    Please be very cautious and avoid ever dealing with this man! I recently fell victim to a scam where this individual,going by the name of Melvin ( advertised a block machine on OLX. First I had to deposit 50% into his FNB bank account under name(F Mabade) Acc no. 62474487975 and then another amount for transport/delivery fee to Cape Town from Kimberley. In total I have now paid this man a couple of thousand Rand and I am still without a machine. He claims the delivery vehicle broke down on the high way enroute to CPT and that it would cost another R1000 for him to get it fixed. Luckily I realised that when he asked for another R1000, that something smelled fishy here and I refused to invest anymore than i already had in this deal. He now appears to be confused and dont know what to do, since i am not willing to pay in more money. Please do not let this guy pull the wool over your eyes with his fake emotions. If you recognise this name/email etc please stop any further transactions with him and report it.

    Essentially this is part of the Cameroonian scam, a sister scam to 419. The French accent is an astute observation. Naturally French is widely spoken in the Cameroon. The other scams this party is participating in confirms this like this export scam: If you have lost money to fraud, do report it at SAPS.
