In March 2012 I contacted Fungwa Mawarire to ship a set of brand new sofas and a bag of new clothes . The sofas were collected from the shop where I bought them from . The sofas cost £1.700 the bag of clothes had over £500 worth of clothing items.On top of it I paid £700 for shipping and his “in House Insurance” The Invoice was from the old “LTD” company rather than the new “LIMITED” version .The “LTD” was struck off various years ago.

He has now sent me an eMail ( I will forward it to you) which has the postal code of ten other victims of his deception and theft. He makes an “apology” for delays…its all eye wash and attempts to delay any action against him by giving victims false hopes. He placed my goods in the van that is described in your last article in which the owner had to pay $5.000 out of his own pocket to clear the goods and the owner described exactly my sofas and also other articles belonging to others.Fungwa used his van to “transport” his cargo. The sofas were seen at the border post of Plumtree and his cohorts were a Mr.Felix (agent?) and a Mr. Cloepas (accomplice?). Felix stated that Cloepas knows the whereabouts of the goods. My family queried Cloepas who before a question was asked stated “…the things were not in there” a blatant lie as Felix and the van owner’s family had already stated they were.This is obviously a gang of smugglers and thieves and the Police are going to act against them.

The Mozambican authorities are being alerted by us through their Interior Ministry.In the UK we will press the Company’s House and Police to gather in this bad apple and his accomplices here so that other poor people won’t become their victims.I’ve got documents that prove my ownership of the goods, Zimtownship’s Invoice and eMails etc. I’ve spoken to the owner of the van ,he is in the UK.For the time being I would like to stay anonymous as I believe Fungwa belongs to a criminal gang . Lookout for my eMail sending Fungwas “Excuse” and Confession of another ten victims he has defrauded.

I think you should be pressing the authorities and the Finance Minister (smuggling?) on this matter and finding out what they are doing about it.

Dear Editor

I am one of the people who have been conned by Fungwa Mawarire of Zimtownship. Infact he took my goods in April 2012 and up to this day he has not delivered. He cut off all communication with me as soon as I paid him off his delivery charges in June/July of 2012. I tried publisicing this on facebook to stop others from being conned as I see that his website and business are still up and running. I suspect he is also conning others through a charity organisation he has established. This guy is real crook, considering the level and amount of money a lot of people have lost. It is unfortunate that no one seems to have reported him to the police because when I checked with the police he was not even on record. I am appealing through your newspaper that all people who have been conned by this guy come together for a joint police report and a Counter Court settlement and publicity mainly to stop him from continuing to cheat and steal from people. Will you help?

Please find attached the communication between me and Fungwa and the receipts of the goods that were sent to his Manchester warehouse, which I believe he has now abandoned due to debts.

The problem is that no one has reported him to the Citizens Advidory Bureau or the Police or Trading Standards and the reasons are obvious. People are ashamed to have been conned in the first place and they don’t like the publicity or fear that if they are asylum seekers, have dodgy papers etc, contacting authorities may open a can of worms.

I want, please, through your publicity, to get as many people as possible to either contact me or you and together we file a police report, write to the companies house, inland revenue and trading standards and get this guy to stop cheating people. Will you help. I have more evidence of the monies I paid him etc.

I wait to hear from you
