How would one even think is being scammed when they are the one who called.I initially paid R7200 for an iphone 6 and R2950 on "import duties and clearance".This guys are good. undeniable offers. I was asked to pay the 7200 in to an fnb account and delivery is within 24 hours of payment confirmation becasue their office was in Bloemfontein "98 kellner street" and this is actually a real street address in bloemfontein.The following day emailed me that a payment of R2950 is needed for customs duty and clearance, they even send me contract that on my signature , the amout will be refunded back to me the following week wednesday. How can one not believe a well draughted contract carefully detailed and has real like signatories. they send me a tracking number for my parcel, they have this website that at first seems legit soon but not soon enough i realised that it was actually a scam.. the racking number seems to be realistic and its believable because it works on their fake website and you can actually see the location updates on your parcel. they have a fake company profile, all things you'd expect from real companies. they send you these invoices that seem real and refund agreements that seem legit. They even have a fake registration and vat number. As i was starting to get really suspicious of this people i checked their company name on CIPC website and it didnt show, i even used their "company registration number" but no such company existed. They have a real physical address so i checked it and in fact it did exist. They really are masterminds, the caller "chris" had a french/nigerian accent very formal. But all that was bull. they know what thy doing. Be careful

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
