Scam alert: I’ve seen a few of these cases now. There’s a guy who’s contacting people who’s cars have been stolen. He says that he’s respraying the car in “Ladaim” (he spells it that way- correct spelling is Laudium) and that there’s two armed guards checking that he doesn’t take pics, or call the cops. He says the car will be leaving in the night and that He wants R3000 for information and the address.
People desperate to find their vehicles probably pay the amount. So this person is preying on people who are already down on their luck. Normally calls from an 063 number. There’s a profile pic but it’s probably fake.
Here’s the victims text, “Good morning family people are trying to get money out of us when we busy looking for our stolen cars. Posted a pic of my car yesterday and I received a call from this number +27630902669 this guy telling me he knows where is my car and he needs R2000 but I can pay him 20% first and he will give me all the details about my car.”
The true caller ID screenshot has been added as well as 2 other screenshots from another victim.
