    I'm pretty sure this is the same guy that tried to scam me, although the name he used was Sello Nthobong. What gave it away was his email address macferyconstruction2000@gmail.com- see the "Macfery" name again? Same modus as the others, 5 minutes after ad was placed in Gumtree for lounge suite, he phoned, wanted it for his mother. Sent me ABSA SMS proof of payment, also ID, Proof of payment and Eskom proof of residence. I told him there would be no collection until the money was in my account- still waiting..

    I have just loaded a report. We advertised our old refrigerator on Gumtree. Patrick Baloyi phoned my husband and used the same ID etc.
    This guy is rather busy!

    I posted my furniture online this morning and within 10 minutes i got a call from a so called guy Patrick Baloyi
    This guy send me an email using Benson Macfery and he also send me his id book which looked very dodgy. He also send me a letter from Eskom. well i was fooled cause i send him my banking details although i gave him wrong physicl adress.

    He send me a proof of payment and also i got an sms. I went to Absa bank and they told me that i should not let him come fetch the furniture till the money is available in my account.

    i send him an sms to tell him i will let him come once i have the money. Then ever since then he started to ignore me.

    This guy is a dog and he thinks he is smart i hope he is busted and rot i Jail. I think God because i had smart people around me.
