Scam Company


A "company" called Belmont Consulting contact us via our website to purchase our products. We send a quote to a George Khune for stock to the value of R20000. After receiving a Standard Bank proof of payment, George requested that we sent the items to. I told him that we do not dispatch stock without payment reflecting in our account.

After a day passed the money did not reflect. Thereafter I had a closer look at the POP. There was no referrence number and the text wasnt even aligned. I not heard from them since.

Their information is as follows:

Luckily no goods were delivered - PLEASE BE ON THE LOOKOUT - details as below: Company name - Greenway Construction. 115 Stock Road Philippi.

  • Richard Davies 12 May 2015, 05:23 PM

    "Mr Sello" tried to hit Vendange today. He ordered goods to the value of R2000 and then paid a cheque of R45 000 by mistake and asked us to refund R43 000. He was very pushy to get his refund. When we saw it was a cheque deposit we smelt a scam. Be careful out there!

  • Reinette 6 May 2015, 07:46 PM

    Beware of a scamster by the name of MICHAEL SELLO. He is operating in Gauteng, targeting service providers in the medical field. He does EFT into your bank account, coincidently from the same bank as his, usually in the region of R50000, although the services amount to R1500 only. He then calls the same day to apologise for the mistake and asks for the amount to be transferred back to him. He even has a "daughter", Natasha, that e-mails the EFT proof of payment. Needless to say, it's a BIG SCAM!!! I smelt a rat when he didn't want to sign our contract but was eager to pay in advance. His phone number currently is 0817627495, but he calls from a "private number". His email address: sellofarms@gmail.com. BEWARE OF HIM!!!

  • Shaun29 5 May 2015, 11:42 AM

    He is at again.... Asked for a quotation on 400lt of PVA paint. We sent a quotation and our banking details. He "accidently" transferred 80 000 rand more... Please beware if anything looks suspicious it is generally a scam. He is using the email rainbow1978@webmail.co.za and pppccc@webmail.co.za.

  • Username7144 28 Apr 2015, 02:40 PM

    I posted the original post over a year ago. I have since been contacted by the same people 4 times now. The police says there is nothing that can be done to catch these people.

  • Jano 28 Nov 2014, 10:01 AM

    Asked for a quotation on 6 turbochargers in total to the value of about R50, 000.00. Worked with Peter Peterson. No one ever buys that many turbos simultaneously from us and immediately accepts the quotation so I googled and found this info. His number is 081 767 4372 and e-mail address rainbow1978@webmail.co.za Thanks very much for the warnings

  • Elsabe Lamont 26 Nov 2014, 03:55 PM

  • CSI Dude 19 Nov 2014, 08:19 AM

    suspected fraudster wanted to purchase 9 PnP gift cards with R10000,00 on each card = R90000.00. Said they will do an EFT into our banking account but infact did a cheque deposit. Will not release goods as we know the cheque will bounce after the 10 days. Be on teh lookout as its teh silly season.

  • Rene18 4 Nov 2014, 03:57 PM

    Nelson is on the prowl again. Booked for him and his wife to stay 16 to 18 November at my GH. When the R34600.00 appeared in my account I realised it must be a fraudster. He even phoned me about the mistake. When I told him I will pay the money as soon as the check has been cleared within 7 to 10 days he did not call again. He gave a number 061 492 3714 and bank details HILLSIDE CONSTRUCTION ACCOUNT NUMBER 1397842693 BRANCH CODE 470010 CAPITEC BANK to transfer the money to. The cheque belonged to IJ Schrader. Standard bank is not interested to follow this up.

  • Johan93 16 Oct 2014, 01:22 PM

    Just received a proof of payment for R98000 for windows and doors that I quoted for R8000. Thabo Mafala phoned me to find out when they will be ready and also to say that his secretary made an over payment and when we can refund the money. The company is going under a name of TM Consulting 135 T/as Balaton Enterprises.

They are using the same order form as above with a different name, vat and registration no. Using Fusion Interiors, contact person Fortune Peterson 0735075227 fusioncc7@gmail.com

  • Phia Marais 23 Jul 2014, 09:32 AM

    This named company are still trying to scam businesses into fraud. Called me yesterday (22/07/2014) to ask quote on air cons - I gave the quote with the requirement of a full payment before any material will be ordered - they sent a purchase order asking all the details to do the transfer. I prompt them that no material will leave our premises before payment is not received. Fortunately I search for this 'Batalon Enterprises t/a Supreme CC'on the internet and find them on this site. There new contact is 'Tony Soya' with a cellphone number 074 823 8774 or 0218289783. I have not heard from him since yesterday afternoon. THANK YOU FOR THIS SITE!! Hope these people will be caught and punished accordingly!!

  • Charlene16 19 Jun 2014, 03:15 PM

They are now trading as Balaton Enterprises t/a Supreme cc Please guys - be aware of this rubbish - it gets very tiring.

  • Pascale Dorp 11 May 2014, 05:52 PM

  • Walter7 10 Mar 2014, 01:20 PM

    Report him to the "Cape Town scams and fraud" page on facebook!

  • W. Goble 12 Feb 2014, 12:16 PM

    This company is still in operation. Scam has changed slightly but same operation, names etc etc as above. He (George Khune) is however now working with a man by the name of Sipho Flente. Ordered product from us, proforma sent and they did an "EFT" Sent email saying they made a mistake and transfer R47'145.87 instead of the profroma amount of R2'145.87 'admin' lady made a mistake and that money was for another supplier... please see attached nedbank proof of payment, please could we transfer less our invoice amount to the following bank account and they provided a Capitek bank account. On inspection of our bank account a cheque had been deposited into our account and low and behold it bounced.....!!! Clever scam as if you do not notice that the amount is still to be cleared it does reflect in your account. Hence one could make the mistake and transfer money back to them when in fact from the beginning the cheque was always going to bounce. Details of these people have been forwarded to Nedbank forensic dept for investigation. Please be aware!!!!
