Jaco Castelyn - Beware bad buying experience encounted

Unread post by PHANTOM II »

Experience:Very Bad buying experience
I am the: Buyer
Brief background: Purchased some items from this seller a while after he advertised it on FB. Paid Jaco Castelyn and he promised to send items once packed . Seller never sent items . Full of promises - every possible excuse in the book why he cannot sent items. He apparently changed his mind on selling , so I asked him to refund me . He agreeded to do so , but oviously never followed through . Items purchased were ix12 radio , 3-4 Scale helis , servos , trex 600 + spares ... etc. I believe he sold this radio to someone else on this avcom group as well during the same time period. This seller is very doggy , in my opinion. I believe he is is the PE area . I see there are some other complaints against Jaco Castelyn on this forum . Please be aware guys, when dealing with any sellers in general. I have filed a case against him with SAPS.

Jaco is a big Scammer .

He sold a Hyperion charger on WhatsApp groups few years back. Back then he stayed in P E. He also told me he send it. The track is wife's car and all kind of stories. Never got it. Told him ill open a case at SAPS.. he said got try your luck.

He sold few items to other chaps from Jhb.. took their money and resell the items. They opened cases and detective called him and eventually pd money back and the cases was closed.. and they shouldn't have done.. criminal intent is there.

Took me for R800.

Saw a post on hobby market place the later. Reported him to admin..they removed him.. seems this cockroach surfaced again.

You can also get the detective to call me. I can give him the name of another chap that he scammed and opened a case against him..
If needed I'll open case against him.. think it was around 3-4 years ago. 2018.

I have the names of the other chaps and numbers.


Rubbish.

SCAMMER: ANTON RUDOLPH / RODEOM

Think it is the same guy, same story, never received the parcel, took a 50% deposit and never sent my items.

I think he gave me a false ID,
Now use the name Anton Rodeom

I reported this to SAPS, if you have any info please send me the info.

Thanks
