    The people sent are innocent transport for hire that don't know anything about the deal.we had same problem and discovered that the people sent were not even aware of what was happening.the scammers themselves use fake names wrongly Rica starter packs sold on the catch transport for hire does not solve bottom line do not release goods before you see the will be dealing with a ghost.

    Hi, these guys tried to scam me and when they they came to fetch the goods that were for sale I arranged with the Hartbeespoort police to arrest them. They came to fetch the stuff with a blue hyundai bakkie and were two men. I opened a case of fraud against them. The case number is 31/2/2016. They got arrested on 5 February.

    The Omar Williams scam, he scammed me he is phoning me from 0734410585, 0718269586 and 0736564147. He uses checks to pay in money into your account, when the check bounces the bank takes back all that money. Please don't deal with these guys.

    Guys please be on the lookout for a women now phoning from the number 0710395738 calling herself Sharon. My husband and I got scammed for R5500. We received a sms that the money has been transferred from Standard Bank, which I thought was legit.
    She was very eager and said she will pay the money quickly because she is on her way to church (making it even worse). She organised two men to pick up the furniture. Their registration number is RXP803GP.
    After these three days have passed and the money still didn't reflect in our account we started to get worried.
    Well, I never thought something like this will happen to us and even more that there are people like that out there.
    Please be careful, it is now even women phoning and I could hear the kids in the background.

    Hello!, just an update. He just tried to scam me (06/01/2016) thank you for reporting his email! I sent him linden SAPS address to collect instead of my own. The number he used was +72 78 055 4275 going by the alias of "Omar Williams". For other users please be sure to double check the transaction number, phone your bank to confirm the transaction. If the "proof of payment" does not have one, it is fake (like his). There will always be a transaction number. All the best*

    Got scammed by the same Company on 20 May 2015. Carlos send me an sms from Absa and email confirmation that money was transferred to my bank account. He send a driver called Larry to pick up my cellphone that he bought from me. So they got away. Unfortunately I got to late to google his company. Please people don't do business with them!
