Mr Andre Du Toit has been in the employment of an established Website development company. He has posted several adverts on the gumtree website, advertising ecommerce sites which generate income. He sent me regular emails asking when I would like to get started and several months later I paid him R3000 to provide me a website. He insisted that it would take a maximum of one week to complete. He eventually provided a link to a site 2 weeks later but the site looked strange. It was familiar to me because he tried to sell me the same site several months ago when I mailed him from another email address! It was in a foreign language and very garbled, almost like the contents of a web trash can. He assured me that he just needs to load the engine and it will be functional. 2 months later I got nothing from him except advertisement emails for more sites. When I asked him what's happened he used excuses such as he was sick etc. Upon careful examination, I noticed that his email was different from the initial one used. Apparently he left his company and started his own company called "Wesmon and Associates", piggy-backing of his previous company's reputation and clientelle! He requested more money at this stage and I eventually was R3000 poorer, with no site or refund.
I have discovered that:
- Andre Du toit has scammed several others and tries to resell the same sites.
- He has some knowledge in his field but has built up a client base from his previous employer, who he has stolen from.
- He has posted NO physical address or landline number on his site, which is indicative of his intent to con, scam and steal.
- His website has been tailored to create the impression of an established business. He is only in existence for 6 MONTHS! he also makes reference to a publishing company which has no affiliation with him- I checked with the company.
Mr Andre Du Toit / Wesmon & Associates are fraudsters. Do not pay him any money, rather get a reputable company to do your site
