    Angry SCAMMER - Robbie Van Der Merwe <vdmrobbie@gmail.com>

    Hi

    I guess we all fall for a scammer's at least once with the hope of finding something we want... Well i got scammed by someone and thought i would help everyone out there to catch him before he scams you.

    A guy by the name of Robbie Van Der Merwe <vdmrobbie@gmail.com> contacted me to my request for a number of pets. he had an invoice. answered all the emails up and until payment was made. then it stopped. Thats how i found out it was a scam.

    All prices was on a list he sent out (im assuming he found out prices from a whole seller) and all seemed legit. he would even suggest you buy few items now see how the quality is then buy more.

    his account number is :
    Banking Details
    Credit Card No *removed*
    Discovery Card

    I am giving this number as he might be widely spread trying to con anyone in any way possible.

    Regards

    Dragon - I think its a bit harsh that you are a newbie here - you come on and have a total moan about someone AND give out account details. We don't know who you are or who he is, therefore we don't even know who is scamming who !!! Perhaps you have a grudge against this guy for whatever reason. Personally I think before you post anything you should have introduced yourself and created some credibility !!

    I think there is nothing wrong with warning others about a scammer. One does not have to believe it blindly, but be at least aware when coming accross the alleged scammer. Imagine you get scammed by Robbie too, but could have been warned... and avoided it.

    How come you've got his credit card details if he scammed you?

    My appologies if i upset you but i believe if i can help the next person...i will... i got scammed... and i learnt from this... but i lost money and i dont see why should i let this happen to someone else when i csn do the right thing and help someone else before they loose money too...

    In this instance,i made payment. With the intent of recieving stock. Yes perhaps i was not thinking clearly when receiving an invoive to check every detail... thus lost out on alot of cash...

    I see no harm on helping the next person from this scam...

    I hope this acc no... will notify you next time you have to put money in it..you will see its a sscammers acc..

    There are many OTHER scammers out there that are just busting to get a persons account details. He has just provided it ! Do you really think he has the right to do this and advertise a persons account details to the whole world ?
    I certainly don't have a problem to name and shame from someone who we all know what kind of a person he is, but not this !
    its like him coming onto the site and saying "xyz is a BIG ripoff !!! And this on his first post !

    Would everyone be a bit more comfortable with the OP if I removed the card details...
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
