    i think she's moved on to durban. just had the same thing happen securing a deposit for an apartment so i was abit sceptical now. asked if we can drop off money and she gave me the same story about using internet banking.tried to google the company and came up with nothing. the only way i found out this was fraud was by googling her reg number and finding this site. so thank you!
