Fake reservation/payment with stolen cheque


A certain mr Johnny Jacobs from Civic Construction cellphone number 0810643344 made telephonic reservations for 4 rooms for 3 nights inclusive of dinner and breakfast and requested that an invoice be faxed to him which was promptly done. Shortly afterwards he phoned to say that his accountant made a mistake and accidentally paid an amount of R36989.79 at ABSA Villiersdorp into our bank account and he requested that the amount owed to us be deducted from the amount and the balance be paid over to another supplier beneficiary. I told him that it was a cheque deposit subject to bank clearance which could take up to two weeks. When I advised him to go the Villiersdorp Branch of ABSA to reverse the transaction, he said he would come back to me. Needless to say they never turned up at the guesthouse and the cheque was dishonoured on 7 December 2012.
