Omo (web site) scam

Location: Kuruman
Crime Date: 19 December 2014
Reported Date: 19 December 2014

Omo (web site) scam

Approx 3-4 months ago, I entered a competition which appeared on what I thought was a genuine "Omo" website. There were various prizes mentioned including washing powder for a year etc and the "GRAND PRIZE" of R 250 000,00.
Today I received an sms from 063 034 6179 stating that I had won the R 250 000,00 cash prize, that I had to call Mrs Zandile Khoza on 073 593 6469 and quote reference 991RPK.
I did.
"Mrs Khoza" then instructed me that I was to purchase R 180,00 worth of airtime and call her back from my cell phone. I purchased the airtime through my bank, which loaded it directly onto my cellphone, and called her again.
She then told me that I had to give her the reference number in order to claim the prize. I again gave her the reference number 991RPK but she said that she needed the reference number of the airtime voucher. I asked her if this was so that she could download the airtime and she said that she needed it to claim the prize for me.
I told her that I would have to buy ANOTHER R 180,00 airtime and that I would call her again.
I looked up "Omo" on my computer and found that there had been a scam such as this in 2013 and felt the need to report this as a possible attempt to defraud.

Lynda Logie - rental fraud

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 3 December 2014
Reported Date: 18 December 2014

Lynda Logie - rental fraud

A rental scam by a prospective "tenant" who calls herself Lynda Logie (https://plus.google.com/103890858784280359331). After signing the lease agreement and receiving the keys, she will immediately claim that the house was burgled because she never received the keys and cannot lock the doors (even though she is clearly inside...). Will list a large number of items stolen, and communicate in a threatening way that she requests immediate compensation. Will attempt to arouse sympathy (from police, lawyers, debt collectors etc.) by claiming to be a "retired nurse" who has to care for a "retarded daugther" (https://twitter.com/yellow_chip).

Ru-Barns defrauding people

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 30 June 2014
Reported Date: 18 December 2014

Ru-Barns defrauding people

Beware of a company called Ru-barns owned by Shane Rudman.

He acts as a middleman who buys cars for people. He has taken peoples money and lied that he has purchased vehicles only to say that they are defective. He has promised refunds and it has never materialised.

when asked to show proof that he indeed purchased defective vehicles and returned them to the seller he has fallen short and failed to explain.

He has had criminal charges laid against him.

He uses his companies limited laibility as a cover  to defraud people. He has recently lied that he is facing a liquidity crunch yet different cars are parked outside his home.

Please beware of this business.

Crime Date: 4 December 2014
Reported Date: 17 December 2014

Australian Puppies and other puppies

We were looking for Australian Shepherd puppies.  We found Angella Grasic from Prieska, Northern Cape and contacted her via email . The puppy was quite affordable! She asked what bank I use and after saying ABSA she send me her banking details also ABSA. The account holder for her deposits is Mr SM Green.  We contacted her and asked whats going on and she replied that it is her husbands account. After a day she stoped taking calls and her husband answered the phone saying his name is Kevin.  A courier, Sky animal post contacted us the next day and required an insurance fee of R3000.We wanted them to refund the insurance deposit after we arranged to go fetch the puppy ourselves but they don't answer the phone.Grasic kennels claim to sell Australian Shepherd puppies. Angella add another R500 for travelling.  The travel insurance where said to be refunded as soon as the puppy is delivered. The morning after another R5000 for a pet travel license where required. Angella even send a copy of an ID to assure you, but don't be fooled...
