Very sad! I used them once in 2019, got what I needed. Used them again late 2020, and after severe delays at least got my order after >7 months. But was nipping towards the end, as it was pricey!

Promised myself to not go through it again, even though they have/had especially quality gear that wasn't otherwise easily available in SA.

I guess the cycle just got more & more vicious, with delays extending, and money-wise not immediately honoring orders.

There can never be a justification for taking people’s money and not delivering or giving them a refund

What he has done is pure criminal theft

The evidence and testimony against him is damning - it is not a one off - there is a pattern of repeated deception

It is good that you pursue this matter @zebra - Flying Brick
Too often, people just let things like this slide instead of holding criminals accountable
Good luck and I hope you and others get your money back

Yoh - glad I got my stuff from them before it went south.

For me there was not a huge amount involved but it would have psst me off if I didn't get it.

Maybe the guys who are out of pocket won't get there money back but at least he may not be able to repeat the pattern  >:D

We have laid a criminal charge, with a SAPS case number: case number to follow tomorrow.

More tomorrow

Update: still busy with the affidavits to both banks, (busy day here  ;) ) so in next day or so, we should be in a position to outline the exact STEPS needed to follow, for others planning on doing same.

Cheers

This guy to me looks very much like someone on Instagram running a company called 2js Detailing in Vanderbijlpark who advertises high end vehicle detailing, paint protection and correction etc.

I checked out 2js detailing and MX alliance on Google search. Both Vanderbijlpark businesses and the telephone numbers are the same, so probably the same guy.

Here then are some of the steps we followed:

•         SAPS case number – CAS348/9/2021 – Maitland Police Station, Cape Town – Tel.:  0215069400.
(we opened a case with the police FIRST)
•         Detailed affidavit signed/stamped by a police officer or Commissioner of Oath – see attached.
(then we drew up an affidavit of sequence of event, and had the stamped/signed by Commissioner of Oaths)
•         Proof of payment – see attached.
(then we provided supporting documentation of our original payment in 2020)
•         All supporting documents – MX Alliance Google Reviews – we’ve reported the site to Google and site has now been shut down.
(We reported suspicious fraudulent activity to Google)
            We have a string of e-mails requesting updates, refunds etc. available on request.
(self-explanatory - we have a paper-trail going back nearly a year, etc.)

And finally, you send all documentation to the fraud department of each bank, in this case his bank (receiver of the funds) , as well as our bank (payer of the funds).

If you want advice, please just shout - I think others SHOULD take the time to file a complaint of fraud. If the amount is meaningful, it is the right thing to do, IMHO.
Cheers
Chris & Rinette

Good for you Chris - It’s imperative that we hold people like this accountable in a country with so much fraud we can’t do anything about.

This we can do something about.

I previously opted for the small claims court with cases like this - The threat of having their assets attached to settle a debt usually gets the money back (Below R20k transaction).

Thanks for pursuing this and potentially saving a lot of unsuspecting customers. Fortunately when I sent a legal demand  I was refunded so cannot institute any action but hopefully others who weren't so lucky can add weight to this case.
