      I’ve also been conned by this thief on 17 / 07 / 2012, I only opened case today 19 / 09 /2012 in Bothasig. I deposited money in a FNB Account No. 62365189169 Smart Account under the name of Mr Siphiwe T Ludidi. Hoping this new info can help.

  2. Lu says:

    Hi Corrie,
    I am also a victim of this Gordon Guy.
    I also posted an ad on gumtree looking for a Golf 5 engine. He called me and said he had one. He also insisted that I deposit the money and I asked if I can only deposit R 2000 and he agreed. I only deposit the R 2k last Thursday to an FNB account. I called him this morning and he said he’s busy he will call me back. I am conned!!

  3. Lu says:

    I opened a case already!!
    He said he is from Richards Bay in KZN to me!

  4. Zandile says:

    Im also a victim. So once you’ve opened a case what happens then?

    • Junk Mail Admin says:

      Hi Zandile – You’ll have to follow up with the SAPS, if they require any information from Junk Mail, you’re welcome to contact our Customer Care Department via ccc@junkmail.co.za

    • Michiel says:

      Hi,

      Anything happened after reporting the case to the police? This guy is still operating now under the name Shaun, and is still using the same phone number 073 8388 634

  5. Russ says:

    I had Mr Tom Khumalo try scam me yesterday.
    He sent me the Nedbank proof of payment sms and requested collection right away. Thank goodnes I googled his name and saw this scam report. Thanks guys.

    Today no payment in my account, so I could have lost my lounge suite to this scammer.
    He was operating from the following number 0786623576 and used the following email address tnhsupplierscc@rocketmail.com.
    It seems he either runs a close corporation or using the CC as a fraud front. I goodled the CC and got the following info online.

    TNH Supplies CC, 16 Prince George Avenue, Brakpan 1541, South Africa, 0117444423
    Hope this may be of any aid for those that wish to try get the SA Police to check the address out for some payback.

    Wish these fraudsters would earn a decent living like the rest of us and stop trying to con the ordinary citizen.

    • Junk Mail Admin says:

      Thanks for your feedback Russ. Please forward us these details to our Customer Care Department via ccc@junkmail.co.za

    • Jade says:

      I have just been scammed by this fraudster as well. I am currently tracking him down. I got a SMS from Nedbank confirming payment as well as emailed proof or payment. How many other people have been scammed by TNH Suppliers cc? He was even polite enough to phone me and inform me that it was a fraudulent deposit and he had stolen the item from me but thank you very much and could I not phone him again. If anyone who has been scammed by this company can provide me with the cell numbers, e-mail addresses and postal addresses I would be grateful. It will help my case and aid the security company I am dealing with. I want this guy punished!!!

      • Henno Kruger says:

        Hallo. If you are still looking for steve he will be trying to pick up a parcel at postnet eastgate mall tomorrow. He did the same to me and is still trying to scam me. I am going to notify the police about this and hopefully they will wait for him there tomorrow. This guy has got one hell of a cheack and needs to be punished.

        • Henno Kruger says:

          Thanks for the update Jakolette. Please forward us details of your encounter with this scammer via ccc@junkmail.co.za

        • Didi says:

          We were conned as well, by this Steve Khumalo guy. We posted an ad for a PS3 on OLX and almost immediately the next day someone was interested. It was Steve. He was even “willing” to pay postage costs. We waited for payment to come through and received an SMS and an email with “proof of payment”. Since it was from Nedbank, we figured it would take a few days before it is deposited. The we did the stupid thing of posting it instead of just waiting until we received the money. We tried calling him and he just swore at us and would keep putting the phone down in our ear. We then called from another number and asked for “Tom” to which he said it was him, then we asked for Steve and he said that it was him as well. He’s a clever little thief. What can we do? Do we just open a case? Have the police apprehended him?

          • Henno Kruger says:

            Thanks for your feedback Didi. To our knownledge the police have not apprehended him. Open up a case with the SAPS (if you have not done so already).

  6. Lu says:

    Hi,
    I have been conned again.
    After that Gordon guy disappeared with my money. I continued looking for an engine. I came across an ad from this fraudster called Daniel Coetzee. He has ads on gumtree and also here on junk mail. The company name that he fronts with is S.A Engine and Gearbox Distributors. He had a workshop in Unit 5, 52 Lauda Road,Killarney Gardens here in Cape Town. I went to his workshop before I paid a deposit for my engine, after I saw it. I was Convinced that he was legit until I paid my R5k deposit. He had cars standing in front of his workshop waiting to fixed. He kept on saying my engine is being transported from JHB. Only to find out even, the guys wo had their cars standing there were also victim of this Daniel guy. He operates with the pone number 0711 668 438

  7. khalil says:

    Why pay someone a deposit without viewing the item? How did you pay a deposit for the Golf 5 Engine ? Please call me on 072-726-7402. Hope I can advise you further.

    • Henno Kruger says:

      Hi Khalil – I’ve asked our Customer Care Department to follow up this matter for you. If you don’t get a call back from them in the next hour, you can e-mail details of the possible scam you’ve encountered to ccc@junkmail.co.za

  8. Paula says:

    This man is still using the same cell number 073 8388634 and the name Gordon Anthony. He scamed my Dad out of deposit money for a car enjin!!!

  9. Gwen says:

    We placed an ad to sell our camping trailer and within a day received a response via sms from a ‘ponen’, he wanted the trailer for him and his wife and asked for banking details which we gave.The notification came through but we knew to wait for the cash to be in the bank. He sent a sms to say the cheque was deposited so can we send the trailer to him, I told him I’m waiting for the cheque to clear then I’ll send it, needless to say we have’nt heard from him again.What really annoys me is the fact that FNB has taken R75.00 from me (the innocent party) to ‘lift’ the cheque, how unfair is that. The so-called Mr M Ponen’s no: 0827328386

  10. KilleRgiRl84 says:

    Luckilly i believe in google otherwise i woildnt have come accross the interesting information today. I have advertised jumping castles on Junkmail & OLX for sale. Yesterday i recieved an sms from Steve 0790929745 to ask if they are still available on which i replied and asked if i could forward some pictures of them and he replied with his e-mail address tnhsupplierscc@rocketmail.com. I sent him the pics and just recieved a call from “Steve” to say i must please send him the banking details so that he can deposit the money and send the driver to collect the goods. I told him that i will wait untill the money reflects in my bank account and hesaid its fine. I would really like to get this guy who ever he is locked up for the loss he has caused everyone. What now how do i go about this ????????

    • Henno Kruger says:

      Hi Kille – You’ll have to report this person to the SAPS. Also send us all the details about this scammer. Contact our Customer Care Department via ccc@junkmail.co.za or telephonically on 012-3423840 x2295.

  11. Johanna says:

    Thanks to Google. Having doubts I Googled the e-mail addres and found this. The same happened to me as to KilleRgiR84. Advertised something on Gumtree and Olx. Same guy Steve contacted me via SMS from 0790929745 with same story. After reading the above I let him know via SMS that the item is already sold.

  12. Andre says:

    I got contacted by a guy going by the name Steve and wanted to purchase my mobile device. He asked me what bank i was with & told him FNB, he said he was with Nedbank. I sent him Nedbank details and after a few minutes, i get an sms from ABSA. When i asked him why he transferred from ABSA, he said there wasnt enough money in his Nedbank so he used the ABSA account. I was suspicious from the start to a person offering to wire funds to your account without even seeing the goods. I knew it was a con & eventually googled the number. And this post came up.

    His assumed name it Steve Khumalo with the number 0790929745

  13. Steve Lhumalo’s mew details (khumalosteve633@yahoo.com)
    Phone Number: 0823812689

    He phoned me this morning saying he is going out of town and wants to pay me before he leaves, and will collect the lounge suite this afternoon…

    I advertised on Olx and without even viewing the lounge suite, I received the payment notification from Nedbank stating that an uncleared cheque had been deposited. I sms’d Steve (or whoever he really is) that he cannot collect untill the funds have cleared. I have arranged with him to meet up this afternoon…

    Anyway, just thought I’d add his new contact details…

  14. Ed says:

    I wish I read these stories before losing my camera worth Ksh(100,000) – approx. R10,090. Same story here in Kenya, I got a call from a potential buyer on OLX-Kenya who deposited a cheque for the goods, then my bank confirmed the deposit. Later in the day the conguy sent someone to pick the equipment from my place. I wish I waited till the cheque he deposited got cleared…but this is just a lesson I had to learn.

  15. Marius says:

    Hi i just got called by Steve i posted a add on gumtree and he called me and i got a notification from absa deposit R18 000 sms and he emailed me proof of payment. and i new this is a scam he called again and said a cain wait till the money shows in my account. his using the cell nr: 0731315477 and 0761765263 and email adress :dominic dominic he says ists his friends email.

      Hi.
      Yesterday I posted an add om gumtree for my galaxy s3. A steve khumalo contacted me using khumalosteve633@yahoo.conm and a cellphone number of 076 176 5623. Stating that he made a payment from his absa acc to my fnb acc by an sms notification. He then got angry as I told him that I will not courier the goods until I can draw the money. The address of the “posty net” I must send the item to is : post net at east gate mall. Hope this will come to use for you.

  16. Jey says:

    Steve is also trying to con me out of my laptop but I did my research on him, many thanks to this post or I too could have been a victim of fraud. How could we catch him, he told me he is going to the office now to make a transfer, so can’t this be setup somehow?

  17. Doug says:

    That steve oke (Steve Khumalo ) is at it again. I am selling one of my tablets and he has already sent me a proof of payment via ABSA. This proof of payment looks different from the other ABSA ones. The money “should” theoritically be in my account tomorrow as I am with a different bank. I sent him an sms saying that once the money is in my account I shall release the goods. He has since not replied or phoned. How can we catch people like this?

  18. O says:

    I advertised some sound studio equipment and a guy called Kevin Khumalo mailed me. I was looking to sell fast so when i got the mail i called this guy. At first he thought I wanted to sell him a generator! After a few seconds he was able to recall what my sale was. Anyway, I was having a rather busy day and although I felt that things just weren’t adding up I needed to try to get my goods sold. Kevin contacted me again and he said he was going to make a deposit. A few moments later I received an SMS stating that money was deposited from an ABSA account. Kevin called again and said I must mail send him the goods immediately…….. but like I said, I was having a busy day! I had a few meetings and could only make it to Postnet a few hours later.
    At postnet I got them to wrap the goods while I ran to the bank. RED FLAG…. deposit hasn’t cleared yet. Went into the bank itself and they said 2 days to clear. Called Kevin back and said I won’t be sending goods till the cash is available in my account. He got very agitated and said that if there’s a problem I must return the money to him electronically.

    So now I’m left with having to pay postnet for their packaging costs (rather large parcel I might add). Didn’t pay them for that yet because I said I was going to wait for the cash to clear and they can hold my items until then.

    So today I have some free time and decided to google this email address and what do you know!!! I find you lovely people having similar encounters! So I never lost anything except the packaging costs but here’s the info that raised flags:

    Email from Kevin Khumalo
    Email address: khumalosteve633@yahoo.com
    Phone: 0736374544

    He wanted counter to counter service via postnet to postnet Eastgate Mall JHB.

    Apparently his driver will collect and this guys name is PERSNI GUYO

    Now, Kevin/Steve is still contacting me because he wants me to send the goods, which I will do once the cash clears…if it ever does! But if this guy really is trying to scam me we can catch him easily because he’s expecting a delivery…. I need to tell him when though….

    SO WHAT CAN WE DO????

    • Henno Kruger says:

      Hey O – Report this person to our Customer Care department via ccc@junkmail.co.za and to the SAPS.

      • coenie says:

        I was scamed by a bruce khoza 0741381380. I would just like to know if any of these guys have ever been caught. And what can we do to help find these guys.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi, I was scammed yesterday. I feel like a total idiot. I placed an ad in OLX to sell my galaxy tab2. I received a call from a so called Selby Mckenzie: 0810178035 saying he wanted to purchase the tab for his daughter. I gave him my banking details and a sms came through EFT. He then told me if I could drop it off either at Eastgate shopping mall or Bedfordview. I then told him he must collect. I stay in a security estate which I have asked them to give me the printed footage of the vehicle which was a taxi and the man that collected named Kelvin. I have this morning contacted Selby again and I received a sms from him stating that it’s just a taxi and that his not that stupid and we will never find him. Please just notify any person selling anything to wait for payment to clear. I have learnt my lesson.

      • Henno Kruger says:

        Sorry to hear that you were caught Michelle. Thanks for sharing your story.

      • Samantha says:

        Hi Michelle. I have just received a call from a person under the same name, in regards to a ad I posted today for a Samsung galaxy s3 mini. And before I confirmed anything with him needed to do a quick search- he is needing it as a gift – and is willing to meet in jhb with cash as soon as possible? should I trust?

  19. Lu says:

    Guys, i got some feedback from SAPS Rondebosch about my case I opened with that Anthony Gordon guy. They told me they cannot locate that Gordon Guy as this phone number 0738388634 that he is using is registered to Richard Mdluli, Thee Richard Mdluli(the dude that was a police boss and got fired)! i really dont know how he got to use Richard Mdluli’s number. They also told me that they cant arrest the Owner of the FNB Bank account that because there is no enough evidence that she is involved.
    Did you guys get any feedback on your cases about this guy?

  20. Johandri Ras says:

    We advertised our PS3 with motion control. Unfortunately we also fell in a guys trap named Eugene Gabriel Davids Tel: 072 442 8066. He send a fake Nedbank payment sms and a fake ID that he mail from Eugene Davids [egdavids@rocketmail.com]. We phoned him twice where he just said the money will show in the account the next day.

  21. Grace says:

    I put up an ad offering a reward for my missing dog and got a call from a ‘Kevin.” Numbers 0792076724 & 0613874467 He says he knows who has my dog. problem being my dog is dead. Googled his numbers and I see he has a few adverts up on junkmail which seem to have been deactivated.

  22. selwayne says:

    I acted on an ad on olx regarding a property to rent in Faerie Glen. I knew from looking at the price and the description of the property that it was too good to be true but took a chance. The advertiser calls himself Willem van Eck but can’t even speak Afrikaans property. He used three different numbers when calling me – 0613874467 and
    0742345951 and
    0791691885. And he wanted me to pay a holding deposit of R2000 by cash send (instant money) to secure the place as “another couple is interested too”. After some uhming and ah-ing we decided its probably a scam. How can you pay a holding deposit on something you haven’t seen right? Phew.. Close one!

  26. john says:

    Thanks to Google iam about to to be scammed as a guy by the name Rodney buthelezi has deposited R6000 to my account in response to my galaxy s3 an d my z10 which I advertised.my surprise was how quickly he was willing to pay the money right away without seeing the items,my conscious brought me here and you guys for your help,thank God I have learnt my lesson without being robbed,my worry is if my bank account is not going to be affected by these scammers

    • kefilwe says:

      Yoh,thanks to Google I wouldn’t have known all this,a guy called Rodney Buthelezi just transferred 3800 via EFT and I received a bank notification in just less than an hour after he called me,for my 5•2 channel component 3D home theatre system that I posted on OLX,now I know the transaction is fake,now I’m worried that my bank acc might be affected by this

  27. Really it is a pleasant in addition to helpful bit of facts. I’m glad that you distributed this useful facts about. You should stop us updated such as this. Thank you giving.

  28. colleen gouws says:

    I was also scammed last week. I posted an Acer Aspire laptop and this guy (KEVIN KHUMALO) contacted me about it. He was very persistent and we had to go to JHB (Bedfordviev, Eastgate mall) to deliver the laptop. I received the “payment notifications” from Nedbank and even a proof of payment slip when I arrived at the mall. The price on the laptop was R5500. Will I ever get the laptop back? This “Kevin’s” number was 0710890865. Please, I’m desperate. What can I do?

    • Hi Colleen,

      We are sorry to here you were scammed.

      Please open a case with the Police with the information you have so that they can look for these scammers.

      Please also keep us updated by e-mailing our Customer Care Department: Care@junkmail.co.za.

      Thank you for using Junk Mail!

  29. colleen gouws says:

    This is a reply to “O’s” post. He wants a playstation 3 and carsound from us, so we must make a plan to get together and contact him about the “stuff” we have on offer. Then we must take him down at Eastgate mall. Its the only reasonable plan we have to catch this guy cause the police works on their own time and barely retrieves the goods. Contact me on ccgouws@gmail.com if you want to help us!

    My dad was almost conned this way, lucklily I was one to fast for the conner. My dad wanted to sell his car. He advertised it and received a call from Ismail and Indian who sells vehicles. This guy just happens to operate from right opposite the John Vorster Police Station in Johannesburg. He was very interested in the vehicle and gave my dad R15 000.00 in cash and said the rest would be transferred. My dad kept the E-Natis documents luckilly. My dad was selling the car for R40 000.00. We waited 4 days no payment was received. We went to the Police Station and they did nothing even though they know him very well. We then took the law into our own hands. My husband and I made turns to stake out the premises with my dad in the car. We saw the wife was driving my dad’s car. We saw the tyres had bee changed an all of the trimming on the car had been removed. On the day I followed her, she stopped at the Oriental Plaza. We waited for her to come out with her shopping then I pounced, screaming at her that she was a thief and the cops was coming for her, I really screamed so loud that everyone was staring at us and I was really in her face. She got such a fright she dumped her bags and the keys and she ran back into the Plaza. I loaded the shopping into my dad’s car and told my dad to drive my car and I drove my dad’s car. I then called him and told him I have my dad’s car, the R15 000.00 which he paid already and his wife’s shopping and if he want’s something out of this deal he better meet me at the Jeppe Police Station. This guy was swearing and threatening me like you cannot believe. He called me a week later and said he has the rest of the money and wants me to come to his shop. I asked him whether he thought I was an idiot and told him we can meet on my terms. I had in the mean time informed the Jeppe Police of what was happening. We met at the Police station and I had the vehicle and his wife’s shopping. He wanted to give me the case. I said no, you go to the bank and deposit the cash into the account and I will confirm with my bank once the money is in. He was fuming. He went to Eastgate branch and deposited the R25 000.00. The SMS came through and I then called the bank manager who confirmed that the cash had been paid. He sped up to the Police Station and glared at me while I had a huge grin on my face. I handed the keys to him and told his “it was nice doing business with you”. If he could wipe me off the face of the earth he would have. We won.

    I received a call from some Shaun character, he wants to meet today to buy my ps 4.. I think I scared him off when I told him that I would not give him the product until the money reflects in my account
