Hi Pierre,

Please post this scammers telephone number here (and the name he goes by as well as the location he said he is at).
I've been contacted privately by a guy which also looked like a scam, so I've walked away. (If number is the same, I will post the guys' name here as well to try hand help others be warned.

Jip, thats the exact same guy that tried to scam me!

To me he said he lives in P.E.
His "truecaller" name matched the one of "Jacque Cilliers"
His profile pic on whatsapp(which has since been deleted) is a modified photo of the "REAL" Jacques Cillier (ie. The CEO of FNB). When I asked him if he is "that" Jacques, he laughed and said no no...he is not, but many people mistake him for that. Lastly when I asked him for a bank acc, it was a Capitec Account 20039570103.

Hope this helps other people to avoid being scammed.

Pay and clear is a dead giveaway of a scammer.. They are always pushed for time and demand immediate payments. The moment someone asks me for an immediate payment, whether he is legit or not, can shove the items where the sun don't shine..
