SMS

I received an sms: Omo washing powder has rewarded you five hundred thousand rands from ref, NO,02kg. Call Mrs Sonia Owen on 0837733780. The sms came from 0788718770. I phoned from the landline and guess what.... I don't have to pay anything, only sms my address ect. and phone back!  I was going to sms the address of the nearest police station, :-) but then thought they'd have my cell number. I didn't even enter any competition! Good luck Sonja Owen or whatever your name is!

Truck Business Opportunities

Location: DURBAN
Crime Date: 6 February 2015
Reported Date: 10 April 2015

Truck Business Opportunities

I saw an advert in Gumtree where this guy advertises that he can guarantee you Truck Contracts and even has a contact that can get you Truck Finance. He needs a fee of R4800 paid upfront. Once you pay him he gives you the contact's number for Finance. When you contact the Finance guy this is where it all goes wrong. The finance guy also needs an upfront fee as well before he can get you the finance. I paid my fee in Feb and up to today have not received any positive feedback. I also have to contact them to see the progress. They don't phone you. Once you pay this guy he does not contact you as well. I eventually gave up as this is just total scam. I see the same guy advertising on Gumtree but using a different cell number which tells you something. I want to warn all South Africans not to trust this guy.

Blacklisted for a loan never taken

Blacklisted for a loan never taken

I went to find out about taking a Consolidation loan, to obviously consolidate my debt as my fiance and i want to get a new car later on this year, but I came to find out, that I was listed on ITC by a GandA Cash Centre on the 19th March 2015 for a loan taken in November 2014, of which I have never heard or dealt with.  Subsequently, this is stopping me from getting a consolidation loan after I've battled for a long time to get my itc back on track and get my debt consolidated.

Car Sold to us. Turned out to be cloned.

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 20 September 2014
Reported Date: 5 April 2015

Car Sold to us. Turned out to be cloned.

A Fords Figo was advertised on olx.co.za with the seller of the name of Thabang Gotschi. 
We initially wanted to view the car but afterwards he contacted saying someone else is with him and potentially wants to buy the car. He then phoned later to tell me the car has not been sold and to make it up to me we can meet half way to inspect (physically between Hatfield and Johannesburg in Centurion). We met halfway in Centurion close to John Vorster Road. Me and my wife inspected this neat car. I double checked the numbers on registration papers and we did the deal. He gave me registration paper. This was an original water marked registration coming out of the eMalhehleni's licensing department. I eft R60 000 into the account he has given me. He was unresponsive to me after the deal and I learned that this car was cloned. Thus a stolen car but with engin and VIN number identical to another car with the same model and make.

After 4 days when we realised this we contacted the bank's fraud department who froze his account. R57 000 has already been withdrawn(our loss). The police investigator could not get statements from some of the persons at least where it happen until now. Some police members have been helpful but others did absolutely nothing. This seller is on free feet and up until now the police can not manage to catch him. They have his id number know where he stayed at the time (maybe still same address)

I can not believe the police can not catch this man. I always have to phone the police to get answers. The investigation overall from police side is poor.

RFQ/ Tender fraud

Location: George
Crime Date: 31 March 2015
Reported Date: 3 April 2015

RFQ/ Tender fraud

I received a call and email from lesegomoagi@dmr-gov.org sending me a RFQ with the details of the Department of Mineral Resources ( see image) requesting Pickon cylinders with quantity 145. I searched the internet for pickon cylinders and found that they are sold by a company called Itekaneng Engineering with the website address www.itekaneng.co.za. The website has a number of products it sells specifying good technical specifications. I called them on the number 044 004 2322 or cellphone number 076 7225350. This number is answered by a lady called Belinda le Roux. She gave me a quote and faxed it to my fax but what I was surprised at was that the faxed came from Kobos Internet cafĂ© but I was not that alert. I tried other companies for the same product but they did not manufacture the product and indicated that they have received many calls abuth the product. I then quoted my client at DMR and after two days came and indicated to me that my RFQ was successful but they need the product as soon as possible. She send me the letter of award and offering that can come and pick up the letter from her and I was satisfied but the email and faxed were satisfactory. I have also done business with the same department before so I was okay. I then placed an order with Itekaneng and paid R58,000.00 into their account using FET from my FNB account into their FNB account the account name was ITEK BOGERE ENGINERRING with account number: 62387373930, this was a legitimate FNB account. I then faxed the proof fo payment and and issued order number with details of delivery address. After a day I did not receive any call from the Suppier itekaneng engineering but when I called the lady Melinda Le Roux was always upset with her bosses but very friendly to me. He promised me I will receive my goods with a day. when I called her on the 2nd of April 2015 she lost it and drop my calls but I kept on calling I indicated that if she does not deliver I will cancel the order and report them to the police if they don't refund me my money back. After 15 minutes she indicated to me that the driver was on his way she will deliver in the afternoon before 3pm. After 3pm I did not receive any call then started checking the details again I realised I was scammed by very good con artist. This is well orchestrated crime. I checked the DMR number again and realise that Lesego did not work for the DMR when I called that number someone is answering but Lesego is at hospital taking care of her daughter. The cellphone  number ( 084 5244118) she gave me rings but she never picks up if someone pick up she tells the same story that she is at hospital and left the cellphone in the office. When I try the landline (012 771 6304) someone answer and always say that she is gone somewhere,  this number does not even belong to DMR number.  At Itekaneng engineering the 044 004 2322 is either picked by Melinda or someone but the order are always being processed and Melinda calls with promises but no delivery.

The lessons learnt from here is that it is always better to use official number for any communication. Do not pay for goods you are unable to collect and inspect the place. I have done business with even going to the supplier or client before but never had similar problems. These guys are good but always trust your hunch, I had a feeling something was wrong here but I never listened to my conscious.

I am trying to speak to FNB to try to hold the money and even release it back to me I will update the site about progress as for now my R58000.00 is lost.  if someone can help please send me email to phadimobuscon@ webmail.co.za about dealing with this crime .
