Classified Ads Scam
| Fake online electronic storeThrough an ad on Gumtree I was redirected to an online store camera2lemz.com that sell camera equipment and other electronic equipment. I then placed an order for a new camera. After making the payment for the camera the sales person Ronald made all kinds promises that he couldn\'t keep. I then got an email saying that they no longer have stock on the item and that they will order it from the head office in the UK. I then received a fake tracking number from timeframe couriers saying my package is enroute to France.. After another day I received a email saying the package arrived in Cape Town and is being held by Customs, and a payment of R4000 is required to release the package for delivery. I then started asking for a local tracking number. I then got hold of a telephone number for this courier company and was greeted by a very rude Nigerian man called James. He demanded payment of R4000. I then decided this people are not getting anymore of my money. They work together in stealing people\'s hard earned money and once they have done so they continue to squeeze even more money out of you. I just hope that some else can read this and avoid being scammed by this criminals.|
