On 16 Feb 2015 I replied to an ad in OLX regarding a guitar and amplifier for sale by a certain CORNELIUS LEMMER in George. We came to an agreement on the price (which was basically the asking price) and as to shipping as well I agreed that i would pay the shipping if he couriered the goods. I then deposited R6500 into this persons FNB bank account no 62521127226. Thereafter we communicated via whats app although it became more and more difficult to get hold of him. I sent him proof of payment and he confirmed receipt of the transfer by eft into his account and confirmed that he is shipping on 23 February 2015.
Obviously the goods never arrived and shortly thereafter his phone number ceased to exist. I did have e mail contact with him via his e mail address of c,firstname.lastname@example.org but very rarely does he reply to my queries save that he sent an e mail on 6 march saying that the goods were returned to sender as no one was at home to collect.
After this there has been no reply at all and no tracking or reference number supplied despite my repeated requests.
This is a clear case of Fraud and Theft.
Never pay money before receiving the goods it is silly, I did and lost it all.
