More Information
Hi Guys

Just a quick heads up - we've been following this story for a while now.

A few weeks ago, a buyer contacted one of the dealers in connection with a story that they had seen in one of the magazines. They offered to purchase the quad on the strength of the story - and could they please make a deposit and collect the goods.

The dealer agreed to this arrangement and a proof of EFT was done - but no funds arrived. They then agreed to deposit funds - and a cheque was deposited - which turned out to be someone else's stolen cheque book.
The dealer was alerted by the bank - and the depositor was arrested...

As we understand, he agreed to cooperate - and the dealer was contacted again to see whether the funds were in his account. Once again - nothing
- so they deposited ANOTHER stolen cheque. Eventually, the dealer had enough and told the guys that the funds were cleared and that the 'customer' could come and collect the quad.

Two gents arrived this morning to collect the quad and the dealer kept them busy while the police were called. While they were in the shop - other individuals were sauntering along the window and checking that the coast was clear. When the dealer went outside - they ran away, chased but to no avail...
The two gents were kept in the shop, and the police arrived.

The story they give is that they were payed R1000 to collect the quad and they knew nothing about payment etc.

Anyway - here are their mugshots and a picture of the bakkie that they were collecting the quad with - just a heads up...

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT FUNDS ARE CLEARED BEFORE YOU RELEASE ANY BIKES...

Just a public service, keep your eyes open and all that.

Cheers
