I was corresponding via e-mail with the “Sales Executive”, one Leticia Meyer, regarding the purchase of a Sony AV receiver. She confirmed that they had one in stock, price R4300 + R220 delivery charges. She confirmed that the moment payment confirmation was received she would dispatch the item and I would have it within 24 hours. She promised to inform me the moment she received this confirmation notice.
I did an EFT and forwarded her my bank’s payment confirmation.
My bank did likewise.
From that moment on she stopped
communicating with me, ignoring my e-mails. My bank managed to recover only R503 from their account because the moment
the money is received they transfer it to a private account.
