Theft and Fraud - SHABEER AC NOORGAT - Rims and Tyres


Hi, on 17 November after our advert was on OLX for about 4 days for BMW M5 Rims and Tyres to sell, a SHABEER contacted my boyfriend interested in buying this. He then convinced my boyfriend that he will transfer the R17 000 immediately, and he will send a driver to pick this up the same night. The arrangements was made that the tyres be picked up from my house. The sms came through that the transfer has been made from a standard bank account: Standard Bank notice of payment: SHABEER A C NOORGAT has paid R17000 into FNB acc .............. on 2016-11-17 Ref: (My telephone) Helpline: 0860 123 003. SHABEER said that this will take about 48 hours' to show - whereby I still didn't feel comfortable. (and usually it doesn't take this long)
While waiting for the driver, SHABEER phoned me from a private number a couple of times to find out if the driver has picked this up yet, in the meantime no money showed.
When the driver pitched, he loaded the rims and tyres and wrote me a delivery/collection slip from a Nakawale Transport, 15 Jeppe Street, Johannesburg. I was still not comfortable and wrote down the registration number of the vehicle without them noticing: VGM768GP. The driver's name was Joseph.
On Saturday 19 November, SHABEER phoned and informed the rims does not fit his vehicle, and he can send it back if we pay R800 which he will hand to the driver to bring this to us. Needless to say, the driver still haven't showed up with the tyres and rims, he promised he is on his way the whole Saturday, and when phoning him he is getting more drunk and eventually switched off his phone, SHABEER's phone is off. When I phone the driver, a Desmond picks up and promises that Joseph will contact me as he has the tyres and rims and should've brought this back.
I now have to go to the police station.

    Hi, anneke!
    I have fallen for the same trick. Same number plate for the pick up truck. Did you receive any money, I'm suppose to get my non-existing by Monday but I know I have lost the product I sold and probably the money as well. Where did this guy arrange the pick up? Did he send you any proof of who he is? Did you open a case against him some how?
