STAY AWAY from any of the above websites. It would appear they are a syndicate supposedly selling electronic equipment, using various website addresses and numerous names, from JAMES JAGAR, ALEXANDER MARTINEZ, DAVE BOYLE etc, obviously fake. I saw an ad on GUMTREE and ONX advertising a laptop. After responding to the ad a few days later I received a mail from ALEXANDER MARTINEX with a link to the website GLOBALDIGITA. On this website electronic equipment is advertised at reduced prices. After doing an EFT into an FNB bank account for R12 000.00 which was to include the laptop and delivery by FEDEX, no delivery was made. I was then told to pay an extra R3 050 for extra shipping costs, into a CAPITEC bank account. A few days later I was asked to pay a further R6 050 into a different CAPITEC bank account for extra goods that were put in the parcel but I was told that they would refund me once I received the parcel. These guys are absolute con artists, convincing. After stupidly paying these amounts they then had the audacity to ask for a further R15 000.00. This is an organised operation and DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR THESE SITES !!!!!!! My advice is to NEVER buy anything off a website without making absolutely sure they have a physical business address and even better, view the goods in person. Take your time and check the sites out carefully. These fraudsters change websites and names very quickly, making it difficult to track them down.

Bought a MacBook from "Digital Outlets" and they shipped my alleged laptop via "Indigenous-za" then all of a sudden when delivery started it was just one problem after the next with them asking me to pay for import duties and then them finding extra contents in my package so then they charged me more and eventually I refused to pay because I found out it was a scam.

Good day, I recently found a website called www.digitaoutlet.com where they supposedly sell gadget TV's and so on. I purchased to what to me looked like a PS4 500gb attached is the invoice I then EFT'd R5000 to a nedbank acc J Mthembu Acc number 1077197365 branch 198765 on the 27 oct 2014. A tracking number 1414490282 was provided to be used on the www.indigenous-za.com it showed my particulars and where delivery is to take place. On the morning of the 29 Oct 2014 I was told the parcel is at customs and a further R3050 needs to be paid to account number fnb N G Nath 62501253380 branch 250655 which I paid the amount. On the 29 Oct 2014 at 16:00 an email was sent that they have had problems as the parcel had more than 1 item in and needed a further R6500 please find attached all email communication attached. This is when I came to a realization that I was scammed. Its too late I know but I am hoping somehow I can be helped in recovering some of the funds. Please find attached documents relating fraud/theft of a scam. The websites involved is www.digitaoutlet.com supposed PS4 console supplier and www.indigenous-za.com shipping company. The police say they need proof of withdrawal in order for me to open a case against them. Cellphone Number of Albert Olsan 0731434323 for digitaoutlet and James Jager for shipping company 0737725377.

The Digital Outlet web site is a scam fake site, usually fronted from OLX or Lacanto or similar free ads website. I paid a 40% deposit for a Sony Xperia Cell phone and then was introduced to their fake website www.indigenous-za.com with fake tracking number etc. There then follows a story about customs duty and they try and get more money from you. They used three different accounts from FNBm Capitec and ABSA. DO NOT GO ANYWHERE NEAR THIS SITE OR THIS CELL NUMBER. They are also using 0737725377 for Indigenous-za for their man "James". The original Indian sounding voice changed to a West African voice later in the whole proceedings.
