    Bryan Barkhuizen (???) tried to buy a generator from me. I normally run company reg numbers & VAT numbers through CIPC & SARS, and saw that he was up to no good. Searched the Web afterwards and came across this page. Same story: fraudulent FNB EFT, cheque in bank, has a site manager (James) who phoned me this morning to find out delivery time. The company's name is now DIA Contractors (Do It All Contractors). On their order it shows Do It All Contactors (Without the r). Looks really Mickey Mouse.

    This is about the fourth of his kind that I have come across in 3 years.

    Bryan Barkhuizen tried to buy a Toyota Hilux single cab from us on the 13th of April 2015 for R 169 990.00. He send us a fake proof of payment. The cheque and deposit slip was send to me by my banker. The cheque was from a company named LOTEES TRADING & PROJECTS CC, account number 62177848359. This is all fake cheques and account numbers used by him. We have a copy of his ID with ID number 630507 5120 08 6. We dont know if this is also fake. His latest number is 062 336 4620 and company is WIZE ENTERPRISES CC. The police has been here and we are doing all we can to assist with his arrest.

    Bryan Barkhuizen placed an order at our East Rand Branch and sent through a fake eft and said to contact site Manager Shaun on 0616520488 to arrange for collection. Bank statement extracted this morning 1 October read "Cheque Deposit" Advised Shaun that the cheque must first clear.I guess that is the last I will hear from Mr Barkhuizen. Thank goodness for stringent policies and procedures in our Company to prevent fraudsters like this. Hope Mr Barkhuizen gets caught soon.

    Mr Bryan has just tried to place an order with us. Fortunately we googled him and found a page of fraud!

  • Sunette Ras 16 Sep 2014, 08:20 AM

    We had the same situation. We have received the EFT proof of payment from FNB for R 42 0000 of Tarpaulins but a cheques was deposited. This is a scam!!! Please be careful.

    Bryan Barkhuizen ordered engine oil worth R17000 from us yesterday. He gave me his telephone nr 021 825 3102 and fax nr 086 719 8633 with email address topstarconstructionandplumbing@gmail.com. He sent me proof of payment, but as I saw other complaints here, I checked it out first and noticed that he paid by cheque and advised him that nothing can be collected until the payment has cleared. Thank you.

    Brian barkhujzen ordered 4 canopies and done a bogus eft transfer and also collected the goods by truck. He got away with 35k worth of goods. Hope he gets arrested.

    CASE NO 32/03/2014 Please note that On the 28/02/2014 Mr F Pittelli ID Book, Pilot Licence, Logbook and 2 x Cheque books were stole out of his Double Cap. These 2 x cheque books were stopped at both banks. Payments were not reversed by Mr F Pittelli but withdrawn from the bank side due to stolen cheque books. I ask that Mr F Pittelli's name be restored in honour. For any further information please phone 016 150 0533

    Brian Barkhuizen placed an order for a new Hyundai H930S Backhoe loader with my dealer in Upington. Luckily, I went onto the web and thanks to you unfortunate people, I found out that this fellow is a huge fake.When he contacts us again, we hope he gets arrested.

    Just had a run in with the infamous Brian Barkhuizen. He ordered approx. R20 000 worth of timber. Money was paid into our account via a fraudulent cheque. Cheque deposited in an ATM near east Rand Mall. Proof of payment sent through on fraudulent ABSA EFT email. All details, re his 'company', are the same as above. The only difference is that we had to contact a site manager by the name of Michael, on 061 600 0610. Delivery point was in Geluksdal aswell. Crime Intelligence in Springs, are busy with the details and are assisting in tracking the culprits. Please confirm case numbers to assist SAPS.

    A guy by the name of Bryan Barkhujzen ordered some loose timber worth R 27 846.08 from our company by the name of Gautruss on the 21st of May 2014. He deposited the cheque into our company account. The following day he referred us to his site manager by the name Brandon. Brandon sent a truck to collect the timber to the following address: 1542 Kenneth Williams Street, Geluksdal next to Tsakane. My boss discovered the following day that it had been a fraudulent cheque. Bryan's contact in Capetown 021 825 3102. Brandon's contact in Gauteng 084 827 3903. No one answers either of these numbers.
