South African Private investigator Anton Koen confirmed that the Lamborghini Urus stolen on February 4 has been seen in Mozambique.
Koen said he was sent images that clearly revealed the registration number of the stolen vehicle in Mozambique.
The vehicle was stolen on February 4 through a dealership scam, where it was requested that the vehicle be taken to the dealership, but it was never returned.
“We now have an idea of where the vehicle is. We will work closely with Interpol and other agencies in order to find the vehicle,” said Koen.
He urged anyone with further information to contact him on 071 127 6091.
The R200 000 reward has not been claimed and is still available.
The NEWS reported online that a case of theft was opened at Bedfordview SAPS after the car was stolen in a dealership scam.
“Residents with luxury vehicles should be more vigilant when confronted with unknown queries from persons requesting their property or trying to get to their property.
“If there is nothing wrong with your vehicle, you need to question why it needs to be taken in. This should be the same in all cases, as there are various scams to be wary of,” said Bedfordview SAPS spokesperson Capt André de Jager.
Koen said three high-end vehicles were stolen from February 2 to 4 in the Johannesburg and East Rand area.
“This is a scam where owners of high-end vehicles are called and told they have a problem with their vehicle, and requesting the vehicle be returned to the dealership. Thereafter, the vehicle is collected, placed on a flat-bed and taken away.
“Owners then call the dealership a few days later asking about their vehicle, with the dealership having no knowledge of the vehicle,” said Koen.
He added that owners of vehicles such as Ford Rangers and Hiluxes need to be vigilant as well, as these vehicles are also being targeted.
“You should call your dealership to confirm such requests.
“Speak to somebody you know at the dealership who would know if the request is valid or not,” said Koen.
Koen urged anyone who has any information to contact him directly on 071 127 6091.Source: Bedfordview and Edenvale News
