Another Scamster - Jaco De Klerk - Watch out guys

Unread post by Camaron Parker » Sun Dec 16, 2018 12:49 pm

Hi Guys

Just a heads up about another scamster in our midst. He goes by the name Jaco De Klerk and cell number is 071 182 1026. Not sure where he is from. Bought some items from him at prices that seemed too good to be true. He saw one of my wanted items and contacted me via whatsapp. Payment was made via Absa Cash Send, as he insisted so no way of reversing payment. When he had excuses to send me the tracking number I just knew I've fallen into the trap. I have since been blocked on his number so no way of getting through to him

I have a picture of his profile as well, but not even sure it's him

Just a heads up to you guys. Its holiday season, so be careful out there. Also rather pay money into a bank account rather than do cash sends

Screenshot of his whatsapp profile attached

Hi Cameron,

Sounds like the same Pierre Opperman that got me. He used the same payment method etc. He also had lots of excuses for sending the waybill, and then just stopped answering Whatsapp etc.

Its like gun laws .... they only apply to law abiding citizens. I was taken on friday by some very clever nigerians. All numbers not rica'd, bank account was opened by someone off the street who was paid to open account in her name :evil:

Just in case anyone googles their number and the chance is good these scammers will use aviation parts to scam people i will post their numbers below with the names i have (probably fake)

Petros the crippled "father" - +27722314662
Politsie the "son" - +27661948557
Then third number they used is registered under Popo Walmer2 - 072 665 6303
The number used to send the bank details 0634023836

Bank details:

B Lukwe Capitec Bank Acc 1375354750

These guys where selling a car that they copied from another advert. They have awesome stories and sound genuine. They said they where in Standerton. Whilst they where "delivering" the car to me i ran the number plate and their cell phones - guess what, car registered to some poor bloke in vereniging and their cell phones where in Yeoville the entire time. The arrogance of this is that they are still using the numbers and same advert on gumtree as i type this. Be careful out there guys, you all know how careful i am with regards to scammers but i was taken again on friday. They are getting cleverer as they work in gangs and do nothing else but sit in shopping centers or in flats (where it is difficult to detect the actual person, but not impossible to do so) and think up fraudulent scams.

And so I learnt a valuable lesson with this incident. PM via Avcom first or verify account with Avcom

Almost got caught. I was going to buy an Align 600n. What made me worry when I spoke to him was he did not want to deal with cash he wanted money deposited into a bank account. I pulled out. Same number 071 182 1026 and same photo as Cameron has.
Said he was on a farm just outside Calidon.

This guy has been banned a few times on avcom under different names. Sad people steal instead of getting a job or doing something themselves

This is the important part - open a case. If you don't open a case, the police for sure won't investigate. You might feel it's futile to open a case, but in the end it might make a difference.
