Scam contentsI posted an ad on gumtree for a Lenovo laptop for R9000. This man then called me offering to buy it for his daughter who needed it for school. He proceeded to send me the money and proof of payment then got an Uber to pick up the laptop. He then notified me he had received the laptop. At 6pm, he sent me an email claiming his account was frozen and the money had not gone through. He then said he was sending the laptop back with a courier company as he did not want to be in possession of something he had not paid for. The “courier guy” got in touch with me and refused to bring back the laptop unless I paid him R1200 upfront. We suggested meeting at Marlboro where he claimed he was and the courier company insisted he wanted the R1200 upfront. I contacted Evans to try to get him to speak to the courier man and he stopped answering calls and said his network is bad. This is when we realised they were both in on the scam together and searched Evans name online and found other ads of him scamming people the exact same way. Please beware of him!

The number of Evans is 0812880290 and the courier guy is 072 180 5666
