SA4U All New Data Entry - A Huge Scam
Report ID: 275
Crime Category: Fraud
Province: Gauteng
City/Town: Boksburg
Suburb: N/A
Address: Boksburg
Crime Date/Time: 23 March 2010, 1:00PM
Reported Date: 15 April 2010
Related Link: N/A
The Incident
They claim to be the only legit company in SA for earning extra money, believe me, it's not.

They don't seem to be the average Data Entry Scam as they advertise the following:

Outsource Data Operator - ONCE OFF FEE - R150, Worldwide Data-Entry Processor- ONCE OFF FEE - R180, Marketing Typist- ONCE OFF FEE - R150, Data-Collection Research Assistant- ONCE OFF FEE - R180, Data Proofreader - ONCE OFF FEE - R250, Home Secretarial Work- ONCE OFF FEE - R150, Article Typing- ONCE OFF FEE - R200, Response Typist- ONCE OFF FEE - R150

I paid them for the Data Proofreader as I was promised by this so called Ande women that I would receive 3 - 4 assignments a day where I would earn R250 per assignment. I also had to send them a copy of my ID as she said that she needed to get me registered as a proofreader which would happen in 1 day. The next day I received some information that had been taken from another website all about how to advertise Data Entry Jobs all over  the internet and scam other people into paying for exactly the same. I was furious and eventually got hold of her on her cell phone, and she said that they must have made a mistake and sent the wrong package to me and will rectify it. I never heard from her again. She doesn't answer my phone calls or e-mails and has deleted me as a member on the website. I have requested my money back but have received nothing. My sister was also scammed.

The website is: www.allnewdataentry.webs.com

They use the number: 072 728 9436.

They are also using a false address. It belongs to an insurance company in Boksburg.

Mark as SPAM/Inappropriate

Hi Good to hear that my report has helped you and well done for checking it out first before going ahead and paying. When I wanted to join, I also tried to check up first but I couldn't find any other info regarding this company so I ASSUMED they were legit. Now we know.

Oh my word, I was also scammed by that Arno woman. I also paid to do the proofreading job, and then she sent me an attachment that I could not open, when I politely asked her to send it again, she told me that it was my fault that I could not open it, and that I could kiss my money goodbye as she has sent the staff. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. I just visited the site now,its unbelievable that the site is still running. How can we let that scammer get away with stealing our money, then sit back and enjoy it at our expense. If anyone has an idea of how we can put this scammer behind bars, then count me in. They deserve all thats coming to them.

Let us report these people. lets not just sit here and discuss them. I have a copy of legislation, which prohibits this practice and if convicted, a person can get a R200 000 fine or 5years imprisonment or both. If u would like a copy of the act to read, please email me on anemke@yahoo.com so I can send u a copy (for free, hehehe!). They need to be stopped and we need man power to do that. I am personally going out of my way to go after my "offender". Please email me if u are with me on this.

I too have fallen prey to this scam, I paid R180 yesterday and have continuosly called the 2 mobile numbers 082 723 4457 and 072 728 9436 only to find out this morning that it is a scam. I paid R180 for the worldwide data processing training material into the Monolit Absa Bank Account Name : MONOLIT Acc no : 9167310901 Br code : 632005 The authorities need to do something about this person and recover our funds paid. There is no room in SA for criminals no matter how small the transgression Regards David

Monolit got me too, thinking back I guess I was stupid. I mean seriously, in this day and age a person has to check everything before doing anything. I was just so desperate I wasn't thinking. And what did it get me? I've lost the R250 I paid for the data proofreading package, with no further word from them. They pray on those who really need what they "offer" What can we do about them? They have to be stopped! Tell me what to do and I'll do it

I've been doing my part in putting a stop to Monolit. I've reported them to every single site I could find them on, and I've posted warnings about them several times as well. I have also contacted a private investigator to hear what he has to say about the situation and if There is anything else I can do... and if it's at all possible to get rid of them for good. Will keep you updated on that. Anyway, I've gone into dozens of "at home jobs" opportunities (This time doing the research first, since I've been burned by that Monolit rubbish) haven't found a single one that looks real enough to actually try and many have already been reported as scams. If anyone knows of any REAL at home jobs, please let me know at sherisegroenewald@yahoo.com Thanx, would appreciate any feedback. I will keep an eye out too, and if I happen to spot anything legit - I'll post it here.

Beware of the edata group or members of Homebiz.They say they work from Johannesburg.You pay a fee of R340.00 for training material,which you receive on line via a password and user name. Once you have done the training you go onto a website to get your assingments and this is where your problems begin.If you don't live in the UK OR USA it is impossible to get bwork as these advertised companies 0nly cater for these countries, now WTF??? Stay away from edatagroup, it is a scam and I am still wating for my so called money back guarantee.

For a 21 year old, I've been around the block..... I have seen everything on the net from fill out surveys, to data entry, to pay-per-click. Even affiliate based income companies. I had my fingers burned plenty of times. The only way to actually MAKE an income over the internet is by trading the FOREX(Foreign exchange) markets. It's far from easy but can make you rich if you're ready for the change.... Any comments? yfori@msn.com

Thank you to all who have posted warning of scams for work from home/data entry/internet work etc. I contacted one via email and discovered that I would be buying a 'Training Manual' to train me on how to scam other innocent people looking for work to whom I should sell the training manual to earn my money! Ludicrous, this is just creating a cycle of scammers. Luckily I researched before paying having smelt a rat. Folowing that experience I saw an ad in the local paper for Dataworx work from home. I requested the brochure which was a very badley printed black and white photocopy extolling the virtues of becoming a member for R295 plus R15 postage fees. Thankfully again I smelt a rat! Reading all the posts this has confirmed it for me and I will email anemke@yahoo.com for the legislation which I will send to any further scammers I encounter and by the looks of things there are going to be quite a few!!Someone needs to stop Leon De Wet from doing any further preying on people in hard times who are looking for hnest ways of earning money!

I have been going through the different sites, and adverts, I realy think the web sites that carry these adverts, (and one I found on a vodocom site)actually support these people, and there fore should be prosecuted with these people, all it says isthat these sites do not care who is on thier sites, ( even if they are criminals ) as long as they get thier money. The police need to step in and charge the site owners for what goes on with thier sites, which is an alternative to not being able to get to the other criminals, if they do not have access to the sites then they cannot do this

I found two adverts of E Data Group in our local newspaper today and thought I'll check it out. After reading the string of comments I wondered how it was possible for them advertise?! What made me think twice was the paper's note at the top of the classifieds section - "CAUTION Readers should carefully examine all financial schemes and money making proposals before accepting any of them. It remains the consumer's responsibility to check the credentials of all advertisers with whom they do business." Makes you think, doesn't it?

Would anybody know whether we are talking about the eData Group at http://www.edatagroup.co.za? I applied in December 2010 and have not 'landed' any work yet. How can I find out? I did e-mail them and got a very wishy-washy reply i.e. did I do the full course and did I contact the clients they suggested? Many of these 'supposed' clients required and supplies a "free CV" on line for one month only, which means I need to ultimately purchase the CV. eData is you wish to reply, you are welcome. Sonette

Don't trust a GMAIL email address as their point of correspondence. Why, if they have a website, do they need to use their personal address or any address outside their website? (so they can separate the evidence) Don't pay anything first. If you must pay for training or registration fee - do it in person and sleep on it before paying. They win by rushing you and rationalizing you. You win by using your emotional intelligence (especially women). That's how you won't be fooled. Don't be greedy don't be needy. The Great Mother will meet our needs - if we have faith.

HI there. I asked Dreamscapes to send me some more information regarding doing online surveys. I received a mail back from Wendy stating the amount you had to pay etc, which was R 80.00 in the mail, but in the attachment it was R 145.00, and on the website it said R 60.00. There is no sense of consistency. I have replied to her asking why the amounts are different. will let you know of any feedback

I was just about to pay the R340.00 deposit to eData Group. I'm usually very cautious about these things, but when I received correspondence containing a VAT Reg Number, postal & physical addresses, contact numbers and most impressively, a professional looking website, I was convinced I had finally found an honest online work opportunity from home. Luckily my husband watched Carte Blanche last night and they recommended this site to find out if the business was legit...thankfully he did and I ended up here reading all your comments!! As they say, if anything sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!!

I registered for the training program on www.edatagroup.co.za after it was advertised in my local newspaper. I paid the amount of R340 in their bank account with the following details: ABSA Bank, Account Number 923 615 9531. I did not receive any training material and no one is responding to my emails. This is in actual fact a big scam. One would think a company going to the trouble of advertising in the paper is real. But they are not! This company's account must be closed by ABSA as it has stolen funds in it.

Thanks guys from saving me from getting scammed once again as I was about to join edata and as for hbiz, doesn't work either, they scam you to scam others, has anyone heard of bemotivatedtoday.com, what's that all about, as for working from home opportunities visit www.tviexpress.com, its the best and is working for me, also there are presentations held throughout were you could actually meet these people, I was skeptical at first since there is a joining fee, but believe you me its worth every cent or should I say rand, if you visit the website and is interested your, sponsor is SMckenzie1. All the best to everyone.

Ek het al die opmerkings gelees. Dit lyk of die besigheidsbeginsel gekopieer is van n soortgelyke besigheid wat wel suksesvol werk in die US.Daar is dit getoets as nie n vals besigheid en een van die top aanlyn tuisbesighede. Ongelukkig is dit net vir mense wat in die US woon. Ek vermoed mnr Leon of wie dit ook al begin het,het die geldmaak moontlikheid en geloofwaardigheid daarvan raakgesien, maar dat die konsep nie by besighede hier genoegsaam byval vind om soo baie mense te kan betaal. Ek wonder of daar nie net n paar mense is wat wel betaal word, net om n paar goeie briewe te adverteer van tevrede geldverdieners, om die skyn te behou dat die besigheid wel wettig hardloop.Intussen word dit nog so baie geadverteer omdat dit natuurlik baie geld inbring. Dit is amper soos dobbelverslawing. Waar kry hulle die briewe van 'tevrede werknemers' vandaan? Ek is ook teleurgesteld. Het inkomste broodnodig, maar kan ook nie bekostig om geld te verloor nie.Sal ook bly wees as iemand my kan laat weet van tuis aanlynbesigheid wat wel werk sonder risiko.

This is such a shame...I to deposited an amount of R425.00 for this e-data package...this was to help my ill sister with some sort of income while being at home.When we got to the bank she was told that the bank account no of 4067761526 belonged to a Mr Leon de Wet and not e-data. Why can ABSA bank not pick up on this SCAM? Surely they must be able to see the activity on this account. SHAME on them. This is a very desperate woman who really needs some form of income to support her family! Anyone with more information on how we can recover this money from them please advise. bcollins@mhg.co.za

Guys I deposited R355 2 weeks back to eData group. I blame it on myself for not doing proper research because I was too desperate for a proper income. I wanted to fo the offline data entry. All I can say is IT IS A COMPLETE SCAM!! People be warned, their training manaul looks very professional, so is their handbook. They get your addresses from people who decided to do the offline ata entry by advertising data entry in local newspapers, you people send your name and adresses and they send you a brochure. You will do all the hardwork promoting them as well as paying for advertising on newspapers and if people register with them they will get all the profit while you get a lousy R125 commission. Month end!! I'm still demanding my refund but I'm just taking this as life learned lessons. Warn everyone u knw, u will not get rich I'm tell more poor promoting them.

Dreamscapes, they are still advertising on well known job sites,if you enquire about the focus groups/ online surveys, you get back a mail with FAQ's and a request for R200.00 for an annual registration fee. With this you get access to their "member's only database", check out the website and it's full of pics of Wendy and her kids, how unprofessional. Be warned, they should be getting their money for the companies they supply participants to, not from the man on the street wanting to earn some extra money.

@ Eyes wide Open: The reason why there are pictures of Wendy and her kids is because as a single mom she needed money. After doing the research and work she then started the Company, so that others, who may be in the same situation can benifit from it. Had you have actually read the FAQ's you would have realised that we take a once off payment, the companys involved will then pay you directlly. But you would have seen this if you had read the FAQ... Peter Dream-Scape Manager www.dream-scape.co.za Tel: 021-556-3662

ek het by bemotivatedtoday aangesluit in mei 2011. Omdat al hierdie scams net daarop uit is om mense te beroof, het ek ook nie geglo dat daar n eerlike manier is om op die internet geld te maak nie. My besigheid groei konstant en ek is regtig dankbaar vir die geleentheid om n passiewe inkomste te verdien. Hierdie is nie n oornag rykword 'fairy tale' nie, maar mense word gehelp om hulle volle potensiaal te bereik. Ek is trots om deel te wees van bemotivatedtoday. www.bemotivatedtoday.com/18711

Hi guyz, thanx for the comments. God will definately richly bless you. eData and hbiz are SCAMS. I am based in Welkom which is about 1h30min away from Potchefrstoom, so I took my petrol and my car and went to that given mbeki adress, it is some sort of business park. We spoke to the owner of the building and she said there was a company called eData there but they have moved to Klerksdorp and she did request them to leave their new adresses but they never did that. I asked her if it was a legit thing and she said she doesn't know but alot of ppl came in and out like hot cakes, but she was sceptical. I used to work at ABSA, so Iasked my ex-collegues to check out the accounts. All their mentioned accounts have been closed.

Just received an e-mail asking me to pay R80.00 for my 'training manual' - I have responded saying I would like to meet the person at their premises as I have been scammed in the past and although I had those people closed down and arrested for fraud, I did not want the same to happen again. Hehe. So far, no response - I wonder why?

Hi All, Has any one joined www.dream-bizgroup.co.za. They also want me to pay R500 up-front and just like any other person, I'm skeptical. And with all these reports, it makes me get even more. I was scammed a lot of money before from ads I came across on gumtree so I always do my research about anything. As for www.dream-bizgroup.co.za there isn't much about them on the internet other than their website, their facebook page that isn't really active, their ads. Any one working with these guys? Well Maybe I should ask ask to go meet them in their office 1st as I am in Cape Town and I'm also in Cape Town.
