    Naand mense, ek ruik 'n scam-rot. Junkmail bevat 'n advertensie vir n Nissan Patrol stasiewa in puik toestand vir R38 000, geleŽ in Roodepoort. Sodra 'n mens reageer, dui die adverteerder aan dat die voertuig ongelukkig in Togo staan omdat hy intussen daar werk en nie meer in SA nie. Hy sal dit voertuig skenk (!!!) maar benodig 'n deposito vir die vervoerkoste.

    Hy is nie bereid om 'n kopie van sy SA werkpermit as bewys te stuur nie en raak venynig as hy nie geld sien nie.

    Hy was blykbaar 'n Rooikruis-medewerker in SA maar nie een van die Rooi Kruis-kantore in sy area ken het nie.

    Laat weet my asb indien ek verkeerd is, of as en hierdie saak anders moet hanteer op die forum.

    Ja, ek soek nog. Ons wil graag Januarie of Februarie koop. Tot dan gebruik ek tyd en data om 'n goeie kennis van pryse en moontlikhede op te bou.

    Default Bcf Refridgeration and Andrew Brown scam!

    We 4x4 users and campers love our gadgets and sometimes something comes along that sort of tickles your fancy and blinds you into parting with your well earned cash. This happened to me recently and going completely against my gut feeling, little knowledge and bells ringing "SCAM, SCAM, SCAM" I paid the R2460 deposit on a 12 V Ice Machine for our off-road caravan.A couple of days later, the alleged supplier and manufacturer, Andrew Brown from Bcf Refridgeration, (yes, I know, spotted that also, and should have been alerted by the misspelling), who has been extensively advertising on outdoor fb sites: Kamp-mal, and a couple of others, again approached me requesting a further payment as the components and materials were coming in faster than he had originally anticipated. This time the request raised the hairs on, not only the back of my neck, but the whole body. Geez, if they could get viagra to do this like this did to my bodily hair, then it would be even more popular. I informed mr scammer, that I would not be paying any further money until delivery.Never mind, I was told. No problems. He will make a plan - probably scheming how to get the extra money from me.Then all the problems started - early completion of the alleged machine, to be delivered on Friday of the last week, OH NO, phone with contact details and telephone numbers with GPS location and dropped pins on google maps. Missed delivery, Saturday promises delivery in afternoon, no pitch. Sunday- no pitch. Monday morning - phone call - will pay money back or deliver in evening to my sister-in-law. Take option of money back - NO, what about components etc purchased, cannot pay back full amount,OK deliver Monday evening at Spur grounds in Rooihuiskraal Rd Centurion. Get constant updates of progress to said location and even to the point of him sitting down to have a meal at Spur. In the meantime my sil is dispatched to Spur to collect. When he realises that she is there, he queries at which Spur, knowing full well that he has the right location but he is bs.Long story short - friends trace address - fake!! bas-turd SCAMMED me, and a whole lot of others looking for him at said fake address, that he had been occupying until it got to hot in the Kitchen. One unhappy client has laid theft charges at Boksburg North SAPS and will be adding mine to the case files as well. Hopefully said mtf will be apprehended soon!Will be adding this to Hello Peter and all other scam warning sites soon!!!!https://www.facebook.com/groups/expo...62275841Beware out there guys: these turds lurk all over - he advertises fridges, repairs, gas, 12/220 elec solar and ice machines. I lost some money, paid school fees NEVER AGAIN.

    for EFT person needs account number and bank name only.name of account holder is irrelevant as is address too.
    give them right account number with wrong personal/account name and wrong address and wait for $ to clear.
    it should if they pay in.
