Scam artists looking for refunds!

Got a call from a Deon Mabuza wanting to make an appointment for his wife Amanda to see the doctor, he wanted to pay the consultation fee in advance. Got an EFT proof of payent the following day, for R68 500 from Mr. Mabuza's company (based in Bramley). Called him to ask what went wrong, said his bookkeeper made the transaction by mistake, can we refund him. Called my boss, who told me he had been called by the bank to say it's a fraudulent transaction. Cheque was deposited in Cape Town, automatically reversed. Upon Googling the received email address, it is a huge scam by a guy who uses Ronnie Menzi as well. Same MO for every fraud attempt (overpayment/ mispayment/ etc, please refund). Capitec bank, under their company names. Be careful!

    A person by the same maybe in process of trying same scam on me. Has deposited an amount of over R49000 for a quote of R2000. The company's name is Mabuza Farms situated in Kyalami according to him. May be an unfortunate coincidence and his 4 employees really need trauma counselling!!!!Wait and see

    The same happened to me this week, Deon Mabuza made an appointment for his son as his wife had died, then sent R34600 from his construction company as payment. Fortunately the hypnotherapy community is closely in touch with each other by social pages and three others reported the same modus operandi.
