I saw an ad in the Personal Classifieds of someone who`s looking for a tug and I also replied that I`m looking for one.
He contacted me via cell phone with one on offer with photo`s attached and he sounded quite decent to me. We had a few chats that won my trust in him and then he offered to send it to me with "The Courier Guy" from PE after payment was made (I even paid for the Courier)
I immediately paid him for something I now know doesn`t even exist as I never heard of him again nor received anything!!
I was blocked on his phone after I decently asked him for my money back otherwise I had no choice as to open up a case with SAPS.
I need help and advice as to drive the culprit to the pen?
I do have his Banking detail as well as the Cell phone number for what its worth?

That's the problem with WANTED ads, they often draw the cockroaches out because everyone can see the ad whether they're a genuine Avcommer or not and you get targetted - I speak from experience , having had Wanted ads out myself in the past.
Fortunately my simple yet effective vetting system worked everytime to weed out the scum. I will only deal with buyers and sellers who have a proven AVCOM record of posts and they must verify themselves with a PM through AVCOM, even if they made contact with me via cellphone/Whatsapp.
I know there have been isolated incidents of disputes over sales between Avcommers but by far the overwhelming majority on this forum are genuine
and honest buyers and sellers.
Once again sorry for your loss.
