Vehicle Scam

Hi, I was looking to buy a fortuner on OLX and came across this ad Ad details2013 Toyota - Fortuner III 3.0 D-4D 4x4 Auto which has done 38000 km, is located in Heidelberg, and currently on offer for R 195,990.00. please call 011 078 7294 fully serviced still as it is.  A Mr Jason Moekeona answered and stated that he is from Alpine Motors and the owners are emigrating and need to make an urgent sale.  He further stated that there are many prospective buyers so if I am interested I need to pay a deposit of R50 000 to secure the vehicle.  So I played on and ask him to send the banking details.  This is what he emailed me:mike khoza <> 11:44 (3 hours ago)to me Hi

Herewith the bank details

As per our telephonic (conversation) agreement, both parties have to be happy with (product) car.
Like I said on our conversation, if you are not happy with the car your money will be fully refunded with immediate effect on your presence. I can certainly promise you that the vehicle that you keen on buying is mint condition.

Kind regards

This is a genuine scam.  OLX should pursue this matter and apprehend these criminals.  The pic of the vehicle is from Hillcrest Toyota.

    I became a victim of these very same scam artists!! I found an add on OLX of a 2009 Mazda 3 with sunroof for R55000. I was given an adress in Randfontein where I can view and test the car, and was told that if I was unhappy with the car my money will be refunded on the spot. It seems these people have been playing this game for a while and continue getting away with it. Details I was given: nr 3 Main Reef Road, Randfontein. Telephone numbers: 0833480713, 0110546089, 0110787294, Mark, Jabu and the 'director', David. Account details: Paul Auto Motors and Spares.

    Guys I nearly became their next victim just few minutes ago. I was going to buy a TOYOTA HILUX 2012 MODEL 4X4 but I was given a Personal bank account instead of a business bank account. I spoke to someone by the name of SAUN but when I called him the second time a different voice answered and he also claimed that he was SAUN. The guy I spoke to first had a coloured accent and the second one had a Foreign accent. They were putting all sorts of pressure for me to deposit the money but I asked for their Physical Address, email address, telephone number (landline) because they were phoning me using different cell phones. Their details are as follows: ALPHINE MOTORS ACC(T KHUMBACA) ACC NO: 1424832320 BRANCH CODE: 470010 CAPITEC BANK FAX: 0866364279 EMAIL: Let's be careful guys and not fall onto these traps. if you see this please inform others

    I was also a victim of such scam where my hubby overseas bought me a car for $300 000.00 with a bogus motor dealer named Mbiza Motors. Their number is 011 074 5702 & they will give u Sandton City Mall address & claim to be at 2nd floor, if u go there nobody knows of them nor is there a dealer around named that. they sell cars that they don't have & the manager with a Nigerian accent who calls himself John doesn't allow u to come to their offices & will tell u to deposit the money into their account & they will locate u. I refused to deposit money & I wanted to see their offices they refused point blank I went to head of Security at the mall they tried to call & get the address he never gave them & threatened to get the security fired, so we went to the Ops Manager to make him aware of this, apparently, the Sandton City Mall is where Mbiza Motors lure their prey. I wasn't the first victim nor will I be the last until the police start investigating this Mbiza Motors. I cant get the car or the money.
