I have just been taken for R6k for 2 DC headsets.

the guy says his name is B Erasmus from Kuruman NCape

we spoke on the phone and he sounded perfectly legit.

He said he would send me the headsets via POSTNET and would share the tracking info. Low and behold he has not sent me anything and i also phone POSTNET in Kuruman and they say nothing has been sent by a guy called Erasmus.


The thing he is still using the same phone number 076 112 7045

i have called my bank to start a fraud case, hoping they are able to track him from sbsa side.

These thugs are so blatant. Fortunately they are getting stiff jail sentences when caught. Don't give up..contact IRS Investigations as they have put many of these scammers behind bars.
