ILLEGAL MECHANIC

Location: Secunda
Crime Date: 12 May 2015
Reported Date: 29 July 2015

ILLEGAL MECHANIC

On 12 May 2015 I have bought a car privately.  I have ask the Mechanic of Malan & Patricia's Auto Servives to check what is wrong on car out of a mechanical sight, he's reply was "small faults, won't even cost you R2000.  On 13 May 2015 the car went to his home (he is running a business from home).  He started with the car, and every 2 weeks he requested money for this part and that part etc.  All payment was done via EFT to him.  He also requested a new gearbox for the car as according to him it was faulty.  So we bought a gearbox and it was delivered to him.  I have asked and paid him money, as I have also requested that he take the car when he is done for Roadworthy as the testing station is not far from him.  He agreed and got paid R200 exstra for his time.  He phoned me to collect the papers as he said the car went for testing, he just need to do small stuff on the car.   On 15 July 2015 I have receive an SMS, stating "Your car is on the pavement with the key in the visor".  When my husband and me got to the car, the windscreen had chip marks and cracks on, it looked if the car was in an accident from behind.  This is not how he took the car on 13 May 2015.  As we tried to drive the car home we found that the gears still does not work, the engin is making a hudge noise, the oil are running out of the car.  I called him and comfronted him he said the car is right.  I have asked him that I need a receipt for the money paid and I want it on paper on what he did on the car, till today he refuses.  I have found out that the car went through testing In Pretoria, when I asked him how did the car go for testing in Pretoria when the car was suppose to be in his yard, he said that he have paid someone to do it for him without seeing the car.  For 3 months now I struggle.  On the 15 July 2015 I took the car to " Service Station in Trichardt" and asked them to check for me what is wrong with the car as it just came from a mechanic.  Till today the car is still there being inspected, as they have found that nothing was done on the car by the mechanic just tampering.  This Malan & Patricia's Auto Services is conducting illegal business from their house.  I need to know what can I do in this situation, as money was paid, nothing was done, and their are damages on the vehicle which was not there (I have before photo's and can get after photo's).  I also have all SMS'es and whatsapp where all comminication regarding this was saved.

It has come to my attention that someone with the same name as me are out there since 2012 committing fraud in my name.  My Id was stolen a few years back and i am convinced this is ID fraud as i am alerted by ITC when someone does an inquiry on my as well.  This is very humiliating and embarrassing for me and my children as I am a grown up woman just living a normal life.  I cannot walk around and look over my shoulder all the time.  should anybody require my assistance please feel free to contact me.  We all know there are lots off scams out there but open your eyes before entering into any deal or transaction.  Regards

Fraud by Gumtree User

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 2 April 2015
Reported Date: 27 July 2015

Fraud by Gumtree User

Gumtree user "ASAIF" advertised a property to rent in Bardene, Boksburg which he claimed he owned.  I went to look at the place on 2 April 2015, and he said that he had a lot of potential renters so I need to pay the deposit of R12 900 asap if I want it.  I paid the deposit the morning of 3 April 2015 (he advised that it should be paid into his wife's account).  Two weeks later he phoned me asking if I want to buy the property because he had a cash buyer.  I then declined the proposal and requested my deposit to be refunded.

After some research I found that the property went on auction by the bank two weeks after I paid the deposit. 

Initially, after involving legal representation, he forwarded me the proof of payment reflecting that he refunded my deposit in full.  When I looked very closely I saw that the last digit of my account number on the proof of payment was a "3" and not a "2".  Thus trying to fool me into believing that the payment was made.

When I threatened to open a case of fraud (at the end of May) he refunded R5000 but no further payments were made after that.  He did advise that another R2100 was paid during July and that he will send a proof of payment but have not received the proof of payment nor has the R2100 ever made it to my account.  I have not received any further communication from him since.  He still has R7900 of my money.

He regularly advertises various services / products on Gumtree, i.e. property, hifi, petroleum supplies, etc.  Please be cautious when doing business with him.

BEING CONNED

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 24 July 2015
Reported Date: 26 July 2015

BEING CONNED

I was notified by "one" Derrick Owen, that he has a Zotye 1.3 Nomad engine for me as well as pictures.  He sugar coated me that the engine will be delivered, he supplied me with a false (I presume photos) etc. of said vehicle engine.  When I told him I wasn't happy to pay full amount he assured that a 50% of R3 000-00 is sufficient.  He sugar coated me that the engine will be delivered at said address I supplied me.  Upon reading all the previous reports, afterwards, I note that he has various alias' and different bank accounts.  My question is has anybody reported this fraudster to the Hawks, furthermore he company name and registration number is non-existent.  Rest assured that I will take this up with the authorities and the press and will trace this fraudster down.  His company's name is "LNM AUTO"  with address "108 Van Rova Road, Tongaat, KZN" Telephone number (032) 525 8301 / 076 721 9413


DO NOT DEAL WITH HIM OR HIS COMPANY(S)


If you want to learn a lesson first receive the goods before payment comments.

Fraudsters Adventurebookings.com

I booked and bought a voucher for an advance driving course through Adventure Bookings.Com, Nov '14 valid until 2017. Their office neighbors confirm they have moved office to "New York", and other clients are also looking for them. They don't answer their cell phones nor emails when you try to book the course.I have opened a case of fraud against them as they seem to be scammers.
