SCAM ALERT!!!! Goodday all, I need help from anyone who has come across these people or know ofthem. I posted an advert on Gumtree Lookingfor transport to work and back, I got a response from a man Named DavidStoffberg, Claiming to be from a company called Stoffberg Carpool &Rideshare services cc Linbro Park Johannesburg ( Reg No: .2006/21-0132-89/14) on the 14 May 2014.He promised me a service but I had to pay a deposit to secure a seat. Which Ipaid for both myself and for my fiancé. I was promised contracts on the 23 May2014 and the driver was to contact us regarding pick up times and so on. I receivedno contracts and no calls from any drivers over the weekend. I Got hold ofDavids partner Marsha Stoffberg on Monday morning the 26th May 2014and she explained that my contract is only due to commence on the 1 June 2014,and David made a stuff up. Which I accepted but requested some more informationabout their company before I paid them anything else. They claim to beregistered with the SA Department of Transport and She got a woman Named RoslynRania (Who claims to be an admin Clerk for the SADOT) to email me with proofthe company is legitimate. We called the SADOT and the email address this womanused was not part of the SADOT email addresses and they also confirmed thatthere is no such person working for them. The Cherry on the cake was the reg noshe gave me was different to the one on their Gumtree info (REG NO: 2009/012-233-21/14).Marsha also promised me a letter head with all the company details on it, RegNo, VAT No, Telephone number, address, Banking details and anything else thatproves to me they are legitimate. She stayed in contact with me all the way until14:00 Monday afternoon. There after I had not received any mails from her and shestopped answering my calls. Accept yesterday morning the 27 May 2014 when my fiancécalled them from her bosses number and David answered her call and when hefound out who he was talking to put the phone down in her ear. I also confirmed with CIPRO and not one ofthese company names or Reg no have been registered with them and I got an actuallist off all company’s with the name Stoffberg in it that are registered withCIPRO, Their name does not appear.I went to the police stationlast night and opened up a case of fraud against them. However sitting back andrelying on the SAPD to do everything is a joke so I would also like to takematters into my own hands, all information I can gather will be passed over tothe investigating officer to hopefully help things along.Please if anyone has come acrossthese Fraudsters or have any information on them your help will be greatlyappreciated and help stop idiots like this who steal for a living.
