Look out for Clive Moffat

I received and order to my first aid company for a Talon trading ordering R14 000 worth of goods, I checked the bank a cheque was deposited by a "Tom Jones" I called the cell number and informed clive moffat that I would not release the good until the cheque was cleared.I decided to google their landline 011 803 0004 and numerous scams for different frauds by Clive Moffat using this number have been reported. BE AWARE of frausters my official order looked very professional.

    Same story with me claimed his name is Jacob adams from Wearcon. Order looks very professional said he needs the goods same day delivery will deposit the money. Lucky i googled the company and came across this site

  • Carol18 30 Jul 2014, 03:00 PM

    This person operating under the name of Johan and cell number 078 951 8101 sent a bogus order yesterday - 29 July 2014 - for collection via fax to one of our suppliers. He also tried to buy on account over the counter with another supplier. Very brazen.

  • Nicky14 11 Jul 2014, 07:22 AM

    Hi, I'm a journalist looking to expose this scamster. Please can you pop me a quick email with your details: movingframes33@gmail.com. I'm particularly interested in 2014 cases - we are working on a lead and need other examples of where a similar scam was pulled. Thanks, Nicky

  • Soundselecttheshop 13 Jun 2014, 09:22 AM

    same story sent us a purchase order from "wearcon" and an absa proof of payment i googled this number and found this he was using the alias Jacob

  • Sarel3 2 Jun 2014, 12:17 PM

    This persons operate now under the following telephone number 0789518101 Called himself Johan.

  • Amanda2 27 May 2014, 09:18 AM

    They now go by a company called Rapid Contracts cc with a fraudulent Vat number. They send a proper PO from the fake company, send fraudulent pmt confirmation and then deposit a stolen cheque into your account. Tel 0710661252 or 011 803 0004. Fortune Peterson and goods to be picked up by an independent driver or delivered to fake address.

  • Amanda2 27 May 2014, 09:07 AM

    Same number, wanting music instruments which we did not release. The police could plant a tracking device in an item and then track the parcel right to the guy who is doing this. Or trace the number from the phone he is using, but they don't want to go through the trouble. I have tried everything to get them to catch these guys, but no help whatsoever. The retailers will have to catch these guys themselves or it will keep happening.

  • Cynthia 20 May 2014, 12:06 PM

    I have put an add on OLX for a phone that I'm selling. Minutes after I have placed the add I could so much phone call from people interested in buying the phone and the majority of them wants to do an EFT, they will send you proof of payment and their ID document. Said to them I cannot release the phone until funds are cleared into the account, but I also didn't want to release my banking details and I said to them it's cash only and never received a call from them again. Now person cannot even place an add on the internet without being targeted by these fraudsters

  • Brian31 11 May 2014, 01:03 PM

    The Fraudster going under philippetersen14@gmail.com and new number 084 382 9537 tried to pull a fast one on me buy talking about eft i would never see and he does not even know what iPad i was taking about as he probably tries his luck with all of them online, he is now using the number 0843829537 and mail philippetersen14@gmail.com is a dark man with only one interest to con people

  • JF 3 Apr 2014, 09:22 PM

    I have just been scammed by this guy and he now goes by the name Selby Khumalo. I gave him my goods worth R8000 and the payment never came through. I tried calling and he always says he will call me back. He says he works at trinity holdings pty ltd. please watch out for this scumbag.

  • LM3 26 Feb 2014, 03:03 PM

    This man now goes by philippetersen14@gmail.com and uses cell phone number: 0743809293. Enquired about my laptop. May I suggest that you check out IDShield.co.za? It protected my cell phone number and email address so that the fraudster doesn't have direct contact with me. I was able to check him out before making contact. (IDShield.co.za saved me one there.)

  • TK2 21 Feb 2014, 01:54 PM

    Also got a call from 074 683 3462, said he wanted to purchase my tablet. He asked for my bank details and wanted to transfer immediately and will send a driver to collect. Weird part is, how can you purchase something you haven't seen? I checked out his number and got here. Very dodgy

  • Stu 19 Feb 2014, 01:25 PM

    Same number (0743809293), went by the name Philip. Selling my laptop, sent through a Nedbank proof of payment, then called after. He hung up when I explained the money hadn't cleared.

  • Andre11 11 Feb 2014, 05:14 PM

    Jarrod Just contacted me on 074 683 3462 from grinakerltamining@mail.com fake email that was setup. Waiting for the supposed proof of payment which was said I should receive tomorrow morning and if we could do same day delivery. Funny Jarrod has a super split personality problem with 3 different voices in 1.

Our company payment policy does not provide for EFTs fortunately. We are online retailers only. Watch out for him - his number was: 0712889161 his email - firstpromo@consultant.com

  • Martin3 13 Mar 2013, 05:57 PM

    You guy should stop complaining. If you want catch the guy leave your contact details behind, I will contact you.

  • Ingrid2 12 Mar 2013, 08:33 PM

    I also posted an item for sale on gumtree on Saturday, 9-03-2013. I received an e-mail from Gerald, that he wanted the item urgently. Sms's were sent back and forth making arrangements for payment and delivery etc. On Sunday, he sms'ed a proof of payment after which he called to ask if I could deliver to perval centre, joe slovo, houghton and I said i would do so once payment reflected in my account. With not having rceived any funds or any further communication, I became suspisious and decided to google him-and here I am. Thank you to those of you who took the time to post these warnings.

  • Tobie 12 Mar 2013, 06:56 PM

    I advertised a complete pc in the junkmail. Had 2 buyers from 2 different numbers(0798095478 and 0741130316 Gerald)who wants to EFT and send me proof of payment. afterwhich I have to deliver to 1 Perval centre corner of Joe Slovo street and Louis Botha in Houghton JHB. Do they really think I am that stupid, Firstly they are more than happy to pay without even asking for details about the product. Please use caution when advertising.

  • Anonymous85 6 Mar 2013, 01:27 PM

    I advertised a notebook in Gumtree. Gerald phoned me 0741130316, and said he would transfer money, and give me proof, where after I must deliver the notebook to the Perva l address mentioned above. a Couple of questions exposed the scam. Be aware when you place adds in Gumtree and Junkmail, so you do not get caught out.

  • Piet15 5 Mar 2013, 02:23 PM

    Aron Davies.. Apparently from Krugersdorp. Want to buy a motorbike from me. How many names do this fraudster have. Send me proof of payment from Nedbank. And no shit Its fake.. Luckily I did some homework by using the mail address that was used to send the proof of payment to me. dave bannet - davebannet@mail.com I told him wena ma-inja. He got very arrogant and slam the phone down .. The number 0843172908 is since not working. And the bike is saved.. Be care full do your homework before handing the goods over.

  • Martin3 4 Mar 2013, 07:16 PM

    It is not that difficult to catch these guys, contact me I know how to get them. Guy is trying to steal a camera from me, what idiot pays R35600 for a camera that costs R10000 new... I am busy messing him around.

  • Innov-X-Africa 30 Jan 2013, 11:02 AM

    Kevin Jones has just sent us an order and 'proof of payment' for our equipment worth R200000.00. Yes, the documentation does look quite professional, until you compare it to original docs from the bank. I reported it to the police, but they say that unless he personally collects from us and we can 'beyond a reasonable doubt' confirm that he is the same person who called in the order, they cannot arrest him????

  • Debbie5 18 Jan 2013, 12:02 PM

    Received a request for 2 way radios and received official order for 36 portable radios a few says later. Value R63612.00 He said he will make once off payment once the stock is ready for the Courier to be collected as he is in JHB.. Googled the vat no as somethings on the order looked out of place... almost nothing matched ...

  • Lebo4 8 Jan 2013, 09:23 AM

    Wow I amm a few of the victims who were scammed abt the Job. Im am sooo hurt and disgusted by their acts. May God be with them. Worst part most people who I know left their Jobs for this scam. They hardly answer their landlines. I think as South Africans if we open a case against them,we can get them to jail.

  • Olga3 14 Dec 2012, 06:47 AM

  • Wesley5 7 Dec 2012, 03:27 PM

    This guy's latest scam appears to be taking advantage of desperate job seekers. Again, his company documentation is excessive and at first glance it looks legit, but the fact that they expect you to pay R130 up front for a medical report led me to believe that I was trying to be scammed. Guess where I eventually ended up based on some of the info I received back when I applied for the job? Here...to this site. He really needs to be caught!

  • Corma Kaschula 3 Dec 2012, 05:45 PM

    He also use the name Johan with cell phone 081 798 9071 Today he pretended to work for Group 5 Building and to Steal razor Wire from a company in Spartan

  • Pilot Crushtec 20 Sep 2012, 09:33 AM

    Hi All Please be advised that the same number 011 803 0004 Named Dave Bannet now and not Clive Moffat tried to scam us by buying a Tower Light and had an Official Purchase Order with Grinaker-LTA Mining and Aveng Grinaker-LTA Company logos on it. His cell number is 079 862 7713. After catching him out his cell number goes straight to voice mail.

  • Diotron Electronics cc 15 Sep 2012, 09:35 AM

    Same guy - Talon trading, Clive Moffat tried to con me out of 15 Motorola Portable radios but i do not release any good s if funds not cleared by my bank.Be carefull and make sure your funds released before sending any goods especially if someone is in a hurry to get the equipment-alarm bells must then start ringing.

    Kevin Jones from First Impression Promotions cc reg 2005/025060/07 Vat 4440194746 also operates from Perval Centre. I received an "official" order from him for CCTV equipment worth R 27 000.00. He wanted to transfer the money from a different bank than mine and then immediately send a driver to collect the goods.I told him once the money is cleared in my bank then he can collect, needless to say he hung up on me.I Googled the company and spoke to the MD of the real company and was told that Kevin Jones has defrauded many people in this way, they get calls like mine every day.

  • H S Technologies 3 Jul 2012, 10:13 PM

    I have received an order today (03/07/2012) for 8 Laptops, 8 MS Office Professionals and a LCD screen. It adds up to R103,423.00. Luckely I google most of the info I get from clients to see if any cases were reported on the info. The address (perval centre , 1 muller st c/o joe slovo drive) brought up this page. So thanks for reporting this. BTW, the guy's name is Kevin Jones on my order. The IP address this order was submitted from is Probably a dynamic IP so it wouldn't mean much.

  • Lenette Moorcroft 22 Mar 2012, 02:36 PM

    Yes, this Clive Moffat looks very legal and above board, but he he is a very clever fraudster! He ordered chairs from my company and straight away deposited his cheque into the bank account.I suspected something was wrong just by the way he conducted business. When I phoned him and explained about the cheque clearing first, he practically slammed the phone down on me! Hope he gets caught soon!

  • Username2042 20 Mar 2012, 01:38 PM

    All their paperwork looks so official, it's scary to know we have such fraudsters out there. He also kept calling me to rush the goods and get them out so we wouldn't notice the cheque would not clear! These people need to be stopped before other innocent people get scammed.

  • Clayton Casimali 20 Mar 2012, 01:20 PM

    We have received an order for 3 Laptops to the value of R55,000.00 on the 19th March 2012 from: Details Used: Clive Moffat Talon Trading (PTY) LTD , Address Perval Centre, Joe Slovo & Muller St, Houghton, JHB P.O Box 2490, JHB 2055 - Tel 011 803 0004 - Fax 086 541 9037 , Company Reg No.: 1951/000000/06 Vat No.: 4320116074 Luckily I have not booked out any goods to be couriered because our company policy of payment terms. I am happy to see that this has been reported. I hope this guy is caught, and he phoned a couple of minutes ago to find out if I can courier it overnight.

  • Cally Morgan 19 Mar 2012, 03:50 PM

    This landline number (011) 803-0004 has also been used when placing an order on my company - for plastic housewares. The order and paperwork all looks official - they used a company name of Ast Holdings (Pty) Ltd. The cell phone number is 078 969 3974 - used by a person called Morgan Nomvete. A fraudulent Standard Bank EFT as proof of payment for the goods was emailed to me. Then a stolen cheque drawn on Nedbank - Novis Shoot & Fourie Trust Acc (a firm of attorneys who ceased trading in 2005) was deposited to my business account and FNB. Goods to the value of R51 588.71 were supplied and collected from Time Freight's Depot in Isando by a hired vehicle with a hired driver. At this time it is unknown where the goods were taken. The incident has been reported to the police. They are following up the ID number of the driver, the vehicle registration number and the details of the owner of the cell phone. They are very organised and slick fraudsters. BEWARE!
