School Transport Scam


I posted an ad for school transport on Gumtree, Junkmail. I received an sms per the attached. I called the lady and while talking to her (lorraine) she advised a deposit is required to secure the seat. Already without even meeting the person or doing any screening we are required to pay. I told her I cannot just pay without seeing her and making arrangements. she said seats are limited and we need to secure it, and get apporval from dept of transport. Already alarm bells were ringing in my head its a Scam. I thereafter received an email from SADeptOfTransport.gov@mail.com (Gurshwin Velasko/Admin Clerk (S.A.D.O.T.). Please DO NOT Fall prey to them. I received an email from Lorraine as well as follows: " we are registered with the S.A.D.O.T. and they don't allow
us 2 give our clients details out but i can give u a clients details
whose child travels with us and attends Verulam Islamic School. His
name is Naseem Khan from Lenham&his number is 0818792844. The
S.A.D.O.T. will send u an email 2 confirm that we are legitimate.
Please contact me URGENTLY 2secure a seat b4 we are fully booked coz
we only have 2seats left. Thanx,Lorraine." So Naseem confirms his child travels with them. Please watch out for these people.
