Attempted scam – Careful!

      A guy called Lionel Khumalo phoned from what sounded like a call center, frantically trying to buy everything I had on offer WITHOUT wanting to meet and view it all first.
      He offered to pay the full amount saying that he was able to transfer from ABSA, Nedbank and Standard Bank as soon as I sent him my banking details. He called me two or three times “reminding” me that I need to send him my banking info ASPA for the EFT, sounding very impatient.

      I obviously didn’t go through with any of if and after doing some forum searching on ODP and on Google, I found out that he is a well know scammer who would have sent be a bogus EFT which would not have cleared 7 days later.

      Here are all the details I could get out of him:

      Number – 083 9833 709
      Email – [email protected]
      Area – Observatory, JHB

      Be careful out there people!
