I know it's difficult to police, especially at weekends when the scammers post their adverts.
Perhaps there should be a waiting before an ad goes live so admin can check if its kosher or not before allowing it.
Simply checking the ad for a motorhome for R63,000 will show up that that same ad has been running for months elswhere at R43,000 and the same lovely couple keep replying word for word be they in Kimberly, JHB or PTA. Now I see they are in the UK. Surprise surprise.....
Remember folks..............NEVER EVER PAY 1/2 A CENT DEPOSIT IN ADVANCE............EVER !!!!!!!!!!!
I see the Fiat Ducato is also for sale at 1/2 price due to a " medical emergency" ???
Maybe these scammers have both gone to hospital for brain ops...............
These idiots will never stop, because they do make money off the gulable people who continuously fall for these ads.
Agree with you Duncan, Admin should try an block all ads to be scrutinised before they are released.
Geert, die webtuiste asook die mense wat val vir die "bargains" as dit te goed is om waar te wees, dan is dit ook so.
Die adds moet nie net geblok word. Sekerlik moet jou eers op die forum registreer voordat jy kan adverteer. Die sel nommers en e pos adresse moet moet bloot gestel word aan al ons forum verbruikers reg op die voorblad van die forum sodat ons nie met n slap riem gevang word vorentoe.
Belangrik om ingedagte te hou is dat jy kan sien op die forum wat jy ry en kan dalk so in n hinderlaag gelei word om jou motor te kaap. Eiende van die dag is dit niemand se plig om ons te beskerm dus moet ons onself beveilig soos byvoorbeeld te gesels op die forum soos nou en te ruik waar die hond stink.
Seems such a nice chap.............
Daars weer n bladsy en half se scams in die classifieds, alles Privaat advertensies, vandag opgesit
As ons so iets sien, moet ons maar vir admin kontak "My Dashboard" "adminContact" en vir hulle laat weet, Soos Frans hier bo noem, hulle is besig met hulle ander werk en sien nie altyd die scams nie.
Die Forum is een van omtrent 5 of 6 rekenaar based jopies wat hulle doen, so hulle sien dit nie altyd vinnig raak nie.
Just thought I would let you know that this Chris Guy 9 years later still using the same script. So has not been caught and I can only imagine he is using the same script because it WORKS!
Been playing along a bit, but sadly he already deleted his advert so I cant report it to admins either.
And the sad thing is, even if admin deleted his post, he will post elsewhere, international fraud is very hard for police to deal with. We have so many local issues they can hardly keep up with. So I am hoping to just keep spreading the word to make people aware.
Seems such a nice chap.............
Super nice isn't he 😆
100% same post as when you posted yours 3 years ago. And same as reported on news 24 9 years ago!
If you see something that looks suspect. Directly click on the Report button under the post. Admin will be notified directly.
Thanks Leon. I am aware.
The point is that they are clearly still succeeding using various platforms. I report to admin on Junkmaol, problem is all they will do is delete the post and no action is taken thereafter.
I hope to spread more awareness that this is still going on,
Even the English from this advertiser is not by an Englishman??????
Sorry don't trust Him.
When admin is notified they delete the topic and they will block the domain from where the info came. They will even put up a flag if a similar domain is used again to gain access to the forum.
There are lots of slim people out there. So they have their ways of changing domains or get past this type of walls. Just by going to another internet cafe the domain is changed although its the same person doing what ever they do.
We on the forum can help by reporting such things quickly. Then it sorted by admin much quicker.
