Jan (Harm) Buitendag

Jan Harm Buitendag runs several pseudo business fronts, pretending to deliver products or services. He typically requests large percentage deposits to be paid for the total invoiced amounts, and promises speedy delivery.

He then typically fails to deliver on time, and keeps the customer in the loop by promising to have the job done 'next week'. After weeks or months of no delivery, he promises to pay back the deposit.

The same process of empty promises of payment is repeated, trying to prolong the process for as long as possible until the customer either gives up any hope of ever receiving back the money paid in deposit, or for Jan to move onto a new business and cut all links to the recently exhausted (frauded) business.

He runs a very well schemed and thought through scam, and being an ex-policeman, is very hard to trace. None of his various cellphone numbers are RICA'ed, making it impossible to trace.

Getting details on his various pseudo business fronts, simply run a search on Google for the following numbers to see existing complaints on websites like HelloPeter.

    Good day SonOfTheKing, we have had the same experience with Jan Harm Buitendag and his wife Sharon Janse van Rensburg. These Fraudsters deal with ANYTHING - I have spoken with folks in Kimberley whom Jan sold cars to under JHB Finances. Currently they are doing business under "Africa Pergolas". Please get in touch with me since I have many other Fraud Cases that have been opened in the last year and we are trying to get all these cases centralized so that we can put these people behind bars. In fact Sharon's father and brother are also part of the scam business - a rotten family. Regards, Flatertjie
