Car scam warning

18 November 2012, 08:58

Yesterday I received an email from a stranger asking me if I wanted a free car. Well I wrote back, to the email address provided and suspecting it was a scam awaited a reply from them.Below is the answer I received, Please all out there this is a scam. They want your money and I don't think there is a car involved.
From: Cobus WoolleyDate: 2012/11/17 11:33:08 AMTo: Subject: 2005 TOYOTA RUNX White 140i RT, 5 Doors, Price 
R30,000      
Hello, Thanks for your message regarding my car.Im verry sorry for 
the lateof my reply. My car is still available, in a very good condition 
and everything is running well. I bought the car in South Africa inside Pretoria with high price , the car is still registered in South Africa. I know that it will suprise you that i'm selling the car with this cheap price but the fact is that for a cogent reason I'm not selling the car anymore, I'm giving it away on donation . I have found a new job out of South Africa since 2 months and im rightnow in West Africa precisly in Republic of Benin with the car but the constitution here does not allow the Right Hand Drive car, that is a problem that I have so I decided to give the car away to anybody whocan ship the car back to South Africa and take care of it well. All i want is that you will pay me back the money that I spent to bring the car here R12,000 when the car arrive in your city in South  Africa. If you are ready to take the car, I have contacted a TransportCompany here and they said the shipping cost to south africa is R18,000 and it will take only four days for them to deliver the car inyour city with all the cars paper works in order. So the total cost that you will spend for the car is R30,000(Price on the ad). If you are ok with the situation explained above and ready to pay this price please contact the transport company to have more details about the transport and the delivery service of the car in your city inside South Africa. Here is the Transport Company contact: ELT TRANSPORT Email: ecolinetransport@fastservice.com Tel : 0022995163749  Here is the car details: Condution: UsedManufactuer: ToyotaYear: 2005Milleage: 180,000 kmEngine Zise: 1398 ccFuel: PetrolTransission: ManualDoors: 5Colour: White•FWDAircon,power steering,radio cd,remote central

The Apathy of SA’s Academics

With SA’s leading opposition party, the DA, feeling uncomfortable in its own skin, traditional white farmers joining the EEF, the uncertain future of the ANC as ruling party, the frustrated workers class, the ANC’s radical land and transformation plans and a president who is reluctant to face justice, South Africans need to sit down and talk. Read more...
