So, we received a RFQ from a mine in Zimbabwe asking to quote on heiner slurry pumps and drills and for generators. I replied to them and said I would look for the items and get back to them. I found heiner pumps in the cape. And got the generators from a friend! I then quoted the mine! The mine then sent me documents saying we need to register as a vendor and please send company details etc! I did all of that! A few days later we got the order! I then contacted them and told them they would have to pay upfront as they were Zimbabwe and they have a bad reputation etc! They agreed but said they would send a person to South Africa to view the goods! And I said thats ok. They agreed to be here on Thursday! Then I thought shit I can show them the generators cause they are just down the road but I can\'t show them the 12 pumps they want cause they are in Cape Town! So I called the pump company and asked them if they could perhaps send me one pump so that I could show my client! And if my client did not pitch could I send it back? And they said no problem! So I bought 1 pump! 34k! On Wednesday I called the mine to ask them what time they would be arriving on Thursday but no answer... I tried all of Wednesday!! On Thursday morning I called the pump company to tell Them to keep the pump and to refund me!!! But ...... No answer! I suddenly clicked and realized that something was wrong! So I googled the mines name and found there website and all looked good! I google the pump company again and all looked perfect!?? Then I googled shiri mineral mines Zimbabwe scam!! And then my heart sank! I managed to speak to the guy again! He told me that it was him all the time both the buyer and the seller ! Using diverted land line number and fake web site Etc!!\'
\' I kept thinking this zim guy is going to try something!! Like give me fake cash or fake check or something!! But actually I was looking in the wrong place! It was the pump company that was fake!!

Much the same as the above. Request was for pumps and motors. Googled picture and was same as advertised on a MASCUS link. Farm machinery. Should have clicked then. These guys are very slick and are aware of what they are talking about in terms of equipment.
