Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Hello Peter complaints go all the way back to 2019.

You can report cyber fraud to cshubcsirt@cybersecurityhub.gov.za (https://www.cybersecurityhub.gov.za/report-an-incident)

I am sure action will take forever, however if you reference all the complaints on Hello Peter, that may speed things up a bit.

PM sent with owners details. I had the same experience. I forgot to mention… if you paid on their website using a payment gateway like Payfast, you can contact the payment gateway for a refund. Unfortunately the one I used was no longer handling DroneParts payments so could not help me. Seems I was not the only one….
When I pass on - please don't let my wife sell my stuff for what I told her it cost.... :lol:
