Joburg Man Narrates How He Got Scammed On Facebook And Warn Users

A man known as Jack has narrates his experience of how he was scammed on Facebook, into buying a ‘repossessed cars’. Speaking on the Azania Mosaka Show, Jack says he used to chuckle to himself when he heard of people being scammed.

Jack shared, “I thought that could never happen to me. It’s embarrassing and not nice to go home to your family and tell them you’ve just lost R30,000.” “I had just sold my vehicle and was looking for another one. I was going through a couple of sites and saw a site called Bank Repossession Cars. I thought it looked good and liked that every car was in a different showroom. I found the car I liked, I called my friend and he told me it’s too good to be true.”

“So, I said to my friend it’s a 2016 car, possibly the person paid for four years then hit hard times. The bank probably just wants the balance. I phoned and a very well-versed gentleman picked up the phone and we spoke and everything sounded hunky-dory.”

“I said to him let’s do the deal. He told me before we do the deal, his finance manager would be in touch. So another man called me to tell me that the cars were going on auction and to secure the car, a 50% deposit is required. So I agreed and asked him to send me the documentation, which he did.”

“I went through the documents with a comb, everything checked out. The website was there with the matching cars so I thought it was all perfect. So I phoned back and I was told it’s an EFT with immediate payment and I said no problem.”

Jack called the next day, no one picked up and that’s when he realized that something was wrong.
