A broadcast was via BBM and Whatsapp reading as follows:
Please watch out for a scamster by the name of Rienette Engelbrecht trading under “R&R Enterprises”. First, she sends a message asking people to enter a competition… “Romanovbrat@gmail.com is my mail. Please send me your name and surname, delivery address and contact details. Please use your name as reference” The prize is gfrag injections valued at R800.00. The competition ran for 1week to get people in my contacts to invite her on bbm with my name as reference. I won as many of my contacts invited her. She told me my prize will be couriered to the following week. Now she starts bbming adverts of gfrag on special. One of my contacts that I am aware of bought from her and she was provided bank account details in the name of:
Br code: 198765
My contact requested a cell number and was given “0712755123”. She was advised that her package will come by courier in 3 days time, the Monday or the Tuesday from Gordon’s Bay. She had to supply full contact details including her physical address. There was never any doubt of a trick or a scam as the person who initially sent out the invite appears as a referee (in this case I am a referee to my contacts).The parcels never arrived and she doesn’t respond to messages. She eventually sent a broadcast as follows:
“Sorry Everyone! Can all clients who haven’t received their tracking number or parcels invite me on Whatsapp 0827071182. My phone was in for repair and its still not totally fixed so I’m taking it back. I will be using Whatsapp for the next 2 days till I get my phone back. I will bc again when I am on bbm again. So sorry for this. Regards.”
The new number is off and not on Whatsapp. The intention of this message is to warn everyone not to get scammed. However, if there is anyone that can assist in tracking her through all the details provided it would be great. Please broadcast.
