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.

    This also happened to me! By reading these comments she has been doing her rounds for a few years now. Thinking we should create a trap for her and catch the idiot.

    On Saturday, I posted two separate ads - one for a fridge and one for a couch.
    Within minute, a woman, by the name of Michelle, called and said she was interested in the fridge (we never spoke about the couch).
    She asked me to send her my address to find out if she could get a driver as she was in Alberton.
    I sms'ed her the address and within a minute she asked for my bank details.
    I sent it to her and within 3 minutes, I received a SMS from Standard Bank. I was surprised as it usually takes longer to add a beneficiary and make a payment.
    I then realized that the "payment" was for both fridge and couch, while she had never even mentioned the couch...
    She called me back and said she would send a copy of her ID - same Michelle Mabote as everyone else.
    I called the bank to check if the SMS was legit - they told me that without the email confirmation and transaction reference, they would not be able to tell me.
    I sms'ed Michelle and asked for an email confirmation to be sent. This took about 20 minutes.
    The email was sent from Cebisile Ndebele ( If you Google this email, you will see that she has been also involved in a lot of frauds...
    As I received the email, my phone rang and it was some man saying that he was at the gate to pick up the furniture. I did not even had time to open the email PDF document!!
    I told him that I was on my way home - I would be there in 5 minutes and asked him to wait.
    In the meantime, I called the bank and gave them the reference number. They told me that this particular payment was for R100 made 4 months ago!
    While I was on the phone to the bank, Michelle kept on calling (17 times!!!). When eventually I finished with the bank, I took her call and I told her that I knew this was a scam - I told her about the bank and about the fact that her ID was not real (you could see the font is not the correct one).
    She went ballistic on me! Screaming and calling me a thief, a scammer and a "Nigerian B*tch"...!!

    I am just happy I noticed how quickly the SMS arrived and found this weird - otherwise, I could have add my name to the long list of people who have been scammed below...

    We were scammed by the same Michelle Mabote woman. The transportation guy claims he took our furniture to vereeniging. How true that is we don't know...

    Yeah, this is funny I am fallen a victim as well, the driver of a white kia truck came with a well respected woman, my confusion started when I asked them if they were sent by Walter Palle and they denied and later on Bug Walter called and say yes their are the ones.

    The old lady didn't come out then the guy asked me to give him a hand on a R20 000 couches.

    Walter sent a prof of payment from Absa to Fnb and I'd copy.

    Honestly with ID I had sceptical because I've never seen an I'd of 1971 with a picture that is in colour but hey I ignored my gut. The following morning Walter called me to apologize about 1500 transfared by his wife to my account so he requested me to push that money back because it was for a delivery.

    Now I started to see that I being scamed. After that Walter was no longer have a good network, speaking Nigerian Language.

    Some times I support Zinophobia. I'm honestly do.

    Yesterday Walter told me to Fuck off.

    I wish all the online sellers shouldn't provide their banking details but instead if a buyer is serious bring cash.

    I'm a sad victim of Wednesday last week.

    Ow by the way...that truck with VGM768GP is also a stollen truck. Anyone seeing or similar process of transaction. Have police ready when they coming. I'm sure there are a lot of us fallen victims

    I have pictures of the person that collected my goods.

  • reshma108521 14 Jun 2017, 11:52 AM

    I have just fallen victim to the same. I advertised furniture and goods on gumtree last week Received proof of payment, ID and proof of residence: 22 Queen Street, Kensington, JNB. Value of goods R11 000. Goods were fetched by the same vehicle. Sadly I am from Durban and was relocating from Jnb an I had to leave in a hurry so I trusted the individual. Although I was initially skeptical, the person (Michelle Mabote) sounded very convincing. Any assistance from you will be greatly appreciated.

The nxt day still no funds showed I then call WALTER whereby he claimed that he was sorry for the inconvenience due to he was still waiting for funds and said that the fridge was still with the courier's and he will send it back, then MARTIN FROM NAKAWALE called me and demand a payment of R1000 or he will sell my fridge (value R11000) I then transferred it to him, he never pitched up like promised when trying to call the same thing he just got drunk and said " WHAT GE F@CK OFF AND DNT CALL ME AGAIN" since then neither WALTER nor MARTIN phones or active.

    Hi the same people took stuff from me on monday I have photos of driver and the registration plate. What now?

  • Victim102611 3 Dec 2016, 01:16 AM

    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?
