Reported Date: 2 September 2014

Online Shopping Scam

My husband wanted to treat me with my favorite perfume for my birthday. He ordered it from Queerscents (part of Queerlife). The website looked legit and he received regular message from them. But unfortunately after they confirmed receiving the money all communication stopped. He did not receive a tracking number as promised and it has been a month now and no parcel arrived. The phone number (076-998-1153) provided is turned off and no responds from any of the email addresses. We even contacted Queerlife with no luck. The website is still active and we would like to prevend anyone else to fall into there trap. Don’t shop at Queerscents!

FRIESIAN SCAM

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 2 September 2014
Reported Date: 2 September 2014

FRIESIAN SCAM

The criminal/s advertise everyday on OLX South Africa. It is clearly part of the Shipping Scams going around.

It is reported daily to Legal OLX and Support OLX. The reports result to nothing in a daily ongoing campaign to get them stopped and effectively block them from the classified ads.

We are a group of concerned people who have now compiled a long list and have records of the amount of reports sent to OLX South Africa and OLX South Africa simply respond with a standard reply - not in the least bothered and claim the criminals are blocked but they are back the same day with the same mobile numbers and advertising names and continue having a lucrative criminal business FREELY on OLX South Africa. OLX claim they can only block them through the email addresses but have done nothing to add the mobile numbers or at least vet the many fraudulent Friesian and Quarter Horse ads BEFORE they go online.

The pictures of the horses are stolen mostly from UK equestrian sites, Royal Dutch Friesian Studs and equine.com featuring horses that will cost a fortune to even bring into South Africa...Laughably selling them for R10,000. Where possible, we also notify the owners of the horses and in many instances the pictures are under copyright law...These criminals laugh because they are back every day and OLX South Africa tells us they take it seriously but their system is limited.....REALLY? South African Police is useless as well but if we can get OLX to have a proper system in place to prevent these ads from going online it can help tremendously.

The criminals/fraudsters/scamsters/ scum of the lowest order have BASICALLY OPENED A CRIME SHOP on OLX South Africa and nobody is stopping them!

If a car is stolen it is a crime...Why then is OLX not doing something about a crime they are clearly aware of and repeatedly made aware of on a daily basis through these reports to their legal and support team? I can only draw the conclusion that they feel no moral obligation to curb the crime in which ever form it takes place through their ineffective system to block these criminals completely.

For today another link to a fraudulent ad is:

Suhail Bhamjees false affidavits

Location: Dundee
Crime Date: 22 November 2013
Reported Date: 2 September 2014

Suhail Bhamjees false affidavits

Suhail Bhamjee of Kamunu Wholesalers has aided his father and their hitman in organised crime,by providing false affidavits to the police in an attempt to have me arrested.
I proved that the statements were false as Suhail had manipulated the text message conversations he claimed were from me.
The prosecutor threw the matter out of court.
Desperate attempts by Suhail,his father Shiraz and their "hitman" have failed and now they have to be exposed,so that everyone knows what their evil tricks in business are.
Heads up.Beware of these Bhamjees from Katima Mulilo,who have business interests in Dundee,as they have no scruples.
These Bhamjees involvements in organised crime are serious matters,however they have manipulated law enforcement officers to keep them out of the limelight.
But what they do not know is that google cannot be manipulated .
Google Kamunu Wholesalers and read all the complaints.Sic.

Illegal Cell Phone Subscriptions

Location: George
Crime Date: 27 August 2014
Reported Date: 29 August 2014

Illegal Cell Phone Subscriptions

I have a Mobile Router contracted from Vodacom. I noticed when logging on that an amount of R7 a day had been deducted from my account for "Foto SMS" services. This amount has been deducted by Vodacom for the past 5 months. What baffles me is that the sim card is for a router, NOT  a cell phone. This is a service I would never use, AND I certainly did not subscribe to in any way.

I went to the local Vodacom office to enquire and of course was told that they do not have any control over 3rd party deductions. I was told to phone a number given for this "service" and on doing so was told by Telkom, "that this number has been suspended". The lady at Vodacom then phone a company called "Smartcall" who apparently is responsible for "billing and deductions" only. The lady, Shannon, confirmed that money was indeed being deducted from my account for a 4th party called "interband.e". She could not give me a phone number for this company, because, she said, they only communicate with them by e-mail! She then forwarded an e-mail to them asking for proof of subscription, and, a possible refund. This e-mail was cc'd to me and the address is interband.e@gmail.com . Shannon did not include a name on the e-mail, but she did cc the e-mail to Cathrine Seko and Yvonne Seko.

So, Vodacom is deducting R210 a month from my account for a service I did not ask for, for a service that is impossible to use on my device, and then as far as I can tell, forwarding the money to a "company" that has no phone number and is operating from a Gmail account. All this via a company called Smartcall which is obviously a front for collecting money from unsuspecting people like me.

What really riles me is that the number for the sim card is never ever used by me, I don't even know what it is. I don't need to know it, it is  sim card in a router (or modem). How do these fraudsters get the number? There are also SMS's on this number from the usual suspects telling me this number has  won millions! The only way these people can get this number, as far as I can tell, is via Vodacom.

Is Vodacom, and Smartcall,  thus not also involved in this type of scam? What is RICA all about? How can these deductions be made by companies without referring to the account holder?
