Fake model Agency L Phen Zo Model and artistry

I replied a Gumtree ad (ad 127918627) last week, to work as an interview consultant for a modelling agency, a guy named Lorenzo Nel, asked me to forward him my Cv, he said I qualified for the job. He then sent me a contract, which I signed and sent back. He emailed me a list of prospective clients, which I was to meet at Rosebank Mugg n Bean on Saturday 16 May. I met the people, and my job was to convince them to sign up with the agency and pay a registration fee. After which, he kept pressing that the clients should make payments as soon as possible. Then I realised, I had not met this guy, and he claimed the offices were under renovation so that’s why I had to meet people at mugg n bean. When I traced the offices, centre management said there was no modelling agency using the rooftop offices. I then asked him a lot of questions, and the answers didn’t make sense. I then knew it was a scam. I refused to give him the client information, or to give the clients his banking details, now he is threatening me. I have the emails and whatsapp conversations. I’m not sure of the way forward.

    It is imperative that you expose this fraud, their contact details and adverts. Also report to SAP. Your reporting and exposing could save a lot of people. Good luck
