Possible fraudulent notification of payment (WIZZIT)

Recommended Posts


I Received this email and a matching SMS to confirm that this payment was made into my account on

the 2nd November.


I have not received the money, 7 working days later.


I have emailed the buyer (steriki1) requesting an explanation, but I'm certain this is a scam.


What takes seven days for payment to show in your account?


Has anyone else received payment confirmations from WIZZIT?

With this person's ratings of only 53%, I am surprised he is even still allowed to operate on his BoB account.


I don't think you're likely to see payment. And, no, I have never heard of WIZZIT either. Possibly another "fraud" where, when one dials that number, one's call costs are astronomical? That's if the number actually exists??! :unsure:

Lucky you didnt send it, what is this Wizzit anyway? That is why I preffer BobPay EFT as the payment will have to reflect before I get confirmation and then I know nothing can go wrong.
