Solve Direct Electronics scam

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 20 November 2014
Reported Date: 26 November 2014

Solve Direct Electronics scam

I was recently scammed by a group calling themselves Solve Direct Electronics through an ad on OLX, however the sellers are also operating on Junkmail, Locanto, Classifieds.com.na, Afribaba and Gumtree. How they operate is they post an ad and when people inquire, they respond through their "company" Solve Direct Electronics sales@electronicsdirectsa.com, they also use accounts@electronicsdirectsa.com and info@electronicsdirectsa.com. They then ask for a few details and of course payment details into the following account:
FIRST NATIONAL BANK
62503528806

They also operate through http://vtechdigitalelectronic.com and http://dixondigitalventure.com/ which refers ownership to Solve Direct Electronics.

They're website says the don't wait for the money to clear, but in reality the person at "accounts" said nothing will happen until the money has cleared.

Once the money has cleared, "sales" then sends a message with a tracking number for the courier company. The "company" used is swiftbay. Website www.swiftbay.eu.pn. They did a really good job making the tracking number function work. My tracking number given was SW741120908N. I did some digging and this site has no contact details and feels incomplete. I then did a google swift and found this company http://www.swiftcouriers.com/. Swiftbay clearly copied the logo of the real company.

I was then contacted by the "courier" who confirmed a few details and made me feel confident. Until she (she sounded Korean, definitely not local) asked for an insurance fee which would be refunded. Bare in mind I paid R7500 for a laptop and the courier is asking for R2950 for insurance. She sent an email with banking details to:
Capitec 
1399619142

This didn't sound right so I emailed swiftcouriers and they confirmed they have nothing to do with swiftbay and that I should notify the police.

At this point both Swiftbay and Solve Direct Electronics were pushing me to pay the R2950, which I haven't done and won't do.

Contact details:
Solve Direct Electronics people:
076 301 9819
072 541 6784
082 703 1117
051 004 2341

Courier:
083 495 5596

I have emails of and phone records of everything should you wish to confirm any details.

Fake Private Investigator

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 18 November 2014
Reported Date: 26 November 2014

Fake Private Investigator

We needed a private investigator to find our cousin who is missing. We browsed on the internet and found him close by as he is in Centurion. We sent an e-mail to zulprivateinvestigator@gmail.com. He responded using this number 081 512 9496 and his name is Eward Azan. We made an appointment for the following day where he met my  brother and my cousin's mother. The strange thing is that he didn't park in front of our office but he was driving. He explained how he works and requested info on our cousin and some documents including his id copy which we gave him. He demanded a deposit of R2500 which we paid him. The following day he claimed to have a lead and demanded R2000 for petrol as they work as a team which we gave him. He wanted more money again and we started to be suspicious of him. My husband demanded proof of info he said he has including pictures.  All this time he is phoning us and updating us on what's happening.  When we want info,he refuses to give us. My husband told him that we won't give him any money until he give us the info. I told him to stop communicating with me or the mother and  contact the my husband only with the info but he is avoiding him. We have nothing from him and when we call him, he says these things take time and he stories don't add up.

SCAMMED BY ELECTRONICS DEALER

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 24 November 2014
Reported Date: 25 November 2014

SCAMMED BY ELECTRONICS DEALER

Jason Holman (Jason electronics ) and the courier company all route logistics services - these two companies are in cahoots with each other and are there to make you pay for goods that just don't arrive.I ordered and paid (40%) for a camera i order from Mr Jason Holman, Managing Director,Jason Electronics & Computer Accessories Ltd.078-235-1424. Before doing this I searched the Internet with the company name for any reports of wrongdoing and found none. Against my better instincts I went ahead. All was good until the tracking number indicated for "All route Logistics Services" on the website "allroutelog" that the package shipped from Kenya and was now stuck at customs. David (Tel: 0614708208 / 011 075 4634), the contact person, sent me an email asking for an additional R3700 to release the package before they can deliver. I did pay 3700 as Jason assured me my daughter who is a photography student will be re-reimbursed. as cost was from customs. All together 5780+3700 paid. now courier calls and says there is another package cannot be released separately another 3700 payment.  i only ordered camera. This guys posts on sites nearly everyday. unsuspecting customers are losing thousands a time. i ve reported and all adds have been removed. PLease dont by any electronics unless you know the company. or go in store BE SAFE! They are ruthless to take money from kids.

Prince Dhlomo

Location: Boksburg
Crime Date: 19 November 2014
Reported Date: 25 November 2014

Prince Dhlomo

Man by the name of Prince Dhlomo ID number 680531 5467 08 0 (pretty sure it is fake) called in connection with buying a cell phone. He sent through proof of payment to us as well as a copy of his ID. He gave us an address which i assume is fictitious. 

The money did not clear in the account and on calling to ask him about this said a courier would be calling to drop it off. The courier then called and asked for 550 upfront payment in order to drop the phone off to which we said it was for princes account, but reluctantly said we would pay. he then would not accept cash on delivery and insisted on a transfer to which we refused. 

We will be going to the police station shortly although we know nothing will be done having seen someone posting using the same id number as fraud. the name on this id was Morris Motsepe

Using my name in fraudulent activity

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 6 October 2014
Reported Date: 25 November 2014

Using my name in fraudulent activity

Some person is posing as me, Marj Murray, offering to clear credit reports. Please note this is a scam. Someone has got hold of my full name and ID and posted illegal adds on Gumtree. I have laid a charge at the SAPS and the SAFPS and have tried to get hold of people who have been scammed to also lay charges - they are reluctant to do this as trying to get your credit report cleared is also illegal.

Do not fall for ANY scam that advertises clearing your credit report - it is illegal.
