FNB won’t re­lease de­tails

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

I’M FROM Mamelodi. I saw an ad­vert on OLX for an Audi A3 for R60 000 on De­cem­ber 2 last year.

I called the mo­tor dealer and was told that the car was on auc­tion, so I had to pay in ad­vance so they could re­serve the car for me as there were other in­ter­ested par­ties.

I de­posited R60 000 into the dealer’s FNB ac­count in Sil­ver­ton that day, and was told to fetch the ve­hi­cle in Boks­burg that af­ter­noon.

When I ar­rived at the ad­dress they pro­vided, it was an open field with no build­ings. I called the cell­phone and of­fice num­ber, but the num­bers weren’t an­swered.

I went to the FNB nearby and was told that the money had been with­drawn from their ac­count, but they could give no de­tails, so I went to the po­lice sta­tion to open a case. Noth­ing has hap­pened to this day, and I have been told the po­lice are still wait­ing for the ac­count holder’s de­tails from the bank. Ev­ery time I call or go there, I’m told the same story. Please help. Johnny Chauke
