GoSharkDiving - Tourist fraud

The company GoSharkDiving, 10 Prestwich Street, Cape Town Central 8000, runs a scam and cancels tourist bookings and then does not re-imburse tourists. Paul, the owner, has done the same thing with a previous company. This fraud is being investigated by several credit card companies and features also extensively on Tripadvisor. It gives South Africa a bad name and could negatively affect the South African tourist industry.

CAROL SUSAN RENTALS

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 2 March 2015
Reported Date: 2 March 2015

CAROL SUSAN RENTALS

Carol Susan advertised a 2 bedroom flat on gumtree.co.za for R4000 in CT city centre. Initially I asked if this is correct, because of its low price. I was given lots of detail on how good the place is and that the rent is not the problem, but that she wanted someone that would look after the flat etc etc. She also mentioned that they moved to Virginia, USA, which came down to the fact that she wouldn't be able to show the place. And when finally asking for the deed and name and ID number, they gave no reply. I discussed this with a few people and one lady experienced the same from Carol. The person I spoke to researched the detail of the ad and email addresses on the internet and found that the same flat was advertised in the UK. I hope to help someone researching this if caught in the situation. Their email address that they used is caro.susan8994@hotmail.com and outlook_51ab3790b08618ca@outlook.com

Listing Agency Scam

Location: Benoni
Crime Date: 27 February 2015
Reported Date: 2 March 2015

Listing Agency Scam

I was scammed out of R350 by a fake company known as Move in Property Management. The perpetrators ask for a fee of R350 for a service of 3 months to help a client look for property but all of the numbers are disconnected, they change email addresses constantly and many people have reported this same issue on hello peter. I have also asked for the person who dealt with for the companies registration and for her ID document copy but obviously with no reply. I am sure they have scammed thousands this way as they display proprieties on sites like the junk mail at really low prices and catch desperate people with this scam.
Their website is : http://www.moveinproperty.co.za/
The person that i spoke to used an alias of Nadine with an email of  nadine.moveinproperty@gmail.com and a contact number of: 011 732 3008

Watch out for an online thief

Location: Benoni
Crime Date: 29 September 2013
Reported Date: 2 March 2015

Watch out for an online thief

Hi Everyone,


Aslanis Deliyiannis aka Michael Deliyiannis replied to one of my adds on Gumtree and came to me with an offer that we will enter into a partnership and both invest ZAR 15 000. We would buy seekelbos hout from Eastern Transvaal and sell it in Mozambique. He made his wife Anna Giorgina Deliyiannis stand as a guarantor.

The deal was that we will sell this wood every two months and divide the profits. It has been over 20 weeks now, and Michael did not give us any profits and also refuses to give us back our capital.

He is a real sweet talker, and claims to be a devout Christian.Yet, he has let us down and stolen our money.


Please beware when dealing with such criminals online. He is a robber and scamed quite a few people.


Regards

Car Scam Artist Johnny 0719624296

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 30 January 2015
Reported Date: 27 February 2015

Car Scam Artist Johnny 0719624296

Johnny 0719624296 advertised a BMW 750 for R130000 in Port Elizabeth. I contacted the man, offered him R100000 and he said, he is happy with the amount. I'm staying in Cape Town, I made all the necessary arrangements with Johnny to view the car on Saturday, 01 feb15 and bought the tickets to PE. Late on Friday afternoon he sent me an sms, telling me, there was another buyer, if I pay a refundable deposit of R5000, he will keep the car. I checked Johnny out on the Internet, was advertising quite a lot of cars and the company he works for, Inter Africa, looked also fine to me.  I paid the deposit. On Saturday morning I flew to PE and waited for Johnny to pick me up at the Airport like agreed. 5 hours later I booked into a hotel and booked the flight back for Sunday. Then Johnny contacted me and explained, there was Auditors at the dealer ship and he could not help me that day and he was very sorry and he told me, he would send the car to Cape Town. A driver, his name is Moses, cell no 0603910116, phoned me and asked, where he has to drop off the car. I sent him my adress. The next day Moses phoned me and told me, the Police stopped him and there was a R4000 fine. I phoned Johnny and complained about the situation, Johnny asked me nicely to send Moses the money and we can deduct it from the purchase price. After a couple of days the car was still not in Cape Town and I phoned Johnny and Moses what's going on. There was a couple of stories about paperwork and some other car which was also on the Truck and they were looking for an additional R 6000. I complained a lot to Johnny and Moses about it, but Johnny assured me, if I would pay Moses the R 6000, I would receive the car the next morning. I'm still waiting...... Johnny advertises a lot of cars on OLX, Ananzi and other webpages. Watch out, he makes a life with the money, other people work for.
