Hijacking & Armed Robbery

Location: Vaal Triangle
Crime Date: 20 October 2014
Reported Date: 22 October 2014

Hijacking & Armed Robbery

At 10:30am Monday 20 October 2014, I took a well dressed black man who called himself Jacob, to view one of my vacant rental houses. He was driving a Silver TDI type Golf. Once in the vacant house another smallish well dressed black man appeared out of no where. He produced a 9mm Gun & told me he wont hurt me as long as I co operate with them. He tied my hands behind my back & my ankles with black cable ties. They then gagged me with tape. They took my gold chain off my neck, pulled me across the room to a corner & left with my white Hyundai 1.6 Getz, my bank card, & both my cell phones. The tenant in the adjoining cottage on the property found me. Jacob used the following cell no, 060 329 8357. See attached picture of my car that was taken

Scam Swimming Pool

Location: BLOEMFONTEIN
Crime Date: 21 October 2014
Reported Date: 22 October 2014

Scam Swimming Pool

Would like to warn other people against the following scam.
I replied to a small add in the newspaper, which advertised a swimming pool and lapa at a price below the most quotes that i got. The gentleman was on site the Monday morning, and they started digging the hole at a crazy speed. He asked me for money for his people's accommodation, which i gave to him, next to the fact that i did discuss this before hand, that his staff accommodation arrangements are for his account. Tuesday they finished digging the whole, and he wanted the deposit to buy fibre glass shell. When i said i do not carry cash and would pay it into his suppliers account, he had a lot of stories why i can not do that. After this i smelled a rat and did some digging. The supplier that he told me he got the shell from does not exist, the number is a fake and the address in Kimberley also. The number that he uses is not registered. This black guy speaks fluently Afrikaans and got a brochure with very nice pictures etc. Do not be fooled, i found out later that it is their modus operandi, after you gave them the deposit you never see or hear from them again.
Please be on the lookout for this add and stay away.

Springleaf

I applied for a loan via springleaffloan@gmail.com and a lady by the name of Helen Eastwood (0746825328)  handled my application. not long after submitting the form we were informed because this is a international loan we need to pay the receivingaccount officer for some admin fee. WE PAID. after sending back the signed contract we received a proof of fund transfer from forexremittancedept@englandmail.com advising we need to pay another R6999 into some account before we can get any cash in my account. I checked with my bank and SA Reserve bank there was no cash, I tried to get my paid cash back but no one of these guys would respond to my mails nor answer the phone if i call...

Can you please help as I'm now deep into debt and can not even afford by 3 month old Son's mink or nappies..

I still have all documentation should you require those please get back to me ASAP

CAR BROKEN INTO WHILE IN GARAGE

CAR BROKEN INTO WHILE IN GARAGE

Hi Every one,

This is completely disturbing to me as Our car is always parked in the garage. When leaving for work at 6:30 this morning we found that the car window was out and door have been messed with. nothing is gone from the car because the radio is built into the car and speakers. They took off our sensor light in front of the garage. WE have security gates on the property but Somehow that did not stop these thieves from coming in. There are obviously people watching us and knows what we drive its frightening to know this and know that they know how to get on the property who says they wont come back and break into our house. We are currently renting and I am pretty sure there is no neighborhood watch. Please for every one to be aware.. we are not safe nevertheless..

CK 53 driving school steals money

Location: Kempton Park

CK 53 driving school steals money

CK 53 driving school is a scam. The owner Kobus Remerus takes as long as he possibly can to teach the K53 method of driving to suck as much money out of his clients as possible, i have had confirmation of this from other driving schools where the students came to them after having had a bad experience with this driving school. He claims that it takes more than 20 lessons to teach someone k53. What utter nonsense and blatant lies. Waste of time and money.

Must serve time

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 19 October 2014
Reported Date: 19 October 2014

Must serve time

I am aware of a person that is wanted by the police that has also breached his suspended sentence. When he got caught again he fled the country but now his back. He needs to serve his suspended sentence but blatantly walks around in this area as if he's not wanted. His name is Jean-Claude Silva de Barros. Has been caught for possession with intent, and he has served a sentence of Assault GBH. He lives at No 4 Deon Hof in Fredrika Street, Gezina with his father. I haven't got his case numbers. His date of birth is 1986/02/08. He varies his name and no police can find his record. Sometimes he gives his name as Jean-Claude Silva Baros, Jean-Claude Silva Barros, Jean-claude Silva de Baros,, and so on. He daily goes to West Park in Capital Park to go smoke dagga with his friends at about 4 to 07 pm.
