A vehicle was sold through a Classified site www.olx.co.za in South Africa (BMW 320D 2006 (Reg. TZS442GP)The Seller reported that Ebay will contact me & verify the process. The mailing address, Icons, signatures all belongs to Ebay as verified. The seller or "Ebay" forwarded a Identification of the seller as she is a S.A. resident but located in London U.K. After contacting the seller & according to her response in Afrikaans this is clear that I.D. fraud wasn't part of this transaction as she replied once in Afrikaans (non-S.A. residents don't know this language). I made a payment of $8432.26 for the vehicle as the vehicle was reported to be stored in Porth Nolloth S.Africa. After the final payment the seller & "ebay" stopped responding to my request to deliver the vehicle till now. I even tried a "fony" email address & the same seller tried to sell the vehicle to mea second time? Is this fair from a S.A resident to "run" to London just to make herself Identified & selling a car registered in S.Africa? Leaving the victim without the car & Money.. When will these people be prosecuted as they are revealed through I.D. but sceme they're untouchable? And what measures for security does Ebay impliment if anyone can use/copy their "secure" business website?

2005 Opel Corsa 1.8 Bakkie

AUTHOR: Angel - (South Africa)

Thank you Mario for your ripoff report.  On the 13 July i was the winner of the above bakkie advertised on E-bay by Rika Van Der Gryp.  I received an invoice from e-bay informing me of the item i purchased for the amount of R 20,000.00 with instructions to send a money gram.  On the e-mail was an attached copy of Mrs Van Der Gryp identity document.  After reading the e-mail i felt a bit uncomfortable and decided to quickly do a name search on google and thats when i came across your report about this scam.  Im sorry Mario that you lost the money you paid but i'd like to thank you for having put up this report or else others may fall victim to the same fate.  I sincerely hope this con artist will be caught soon.  The details supplied to me state she is in the united kingdom and the e-mail address i must forward the payment details to are a hotmail account (i just read that we are not to supply e-mail address on our report, so i have just written where her mailbox account is held).

Nearly caught by this fraudster

AUTHOR: Regan - (South Africa)

Good day

I am currently in negotiations with this person "Rika" who has "moved" to England and selling her car in South Africa.

If it wasn't for Rifoff Report, I might have gone through and paid the amount into their "verified -ebay" account.

Is there anything I can do to alert either the UK or South African authorities while I have the attention of the seller, who is waiting for me to pay them?
