Toby Williams

I met a guy early September at a filling station and exchanged numbers as we liked each other...And there after we started calling each other everyday and things were getting pretty serious between us-so i thought.He told me that he's an American citizen and was working as a real estate agent and he owed a number of luxury cars and bikes he also stayed at a very expensive apartment in Sandton and i would go there often sometimes without an invite as he had nothing to hide-so he said.Everytime i was there he would be counting ruby stones which i questioned in my mind but let it slip..Then about a month into "our relationship" i asked him if he could help me look for a place as he would know better than me then he agreed but it never happened..Instead he asked me to loan him R10 000 and i would get in a day or two which i did since i saw nothing suspicious...I mean he was WEALTHY....Then a day became a week,then weeks,then a month..I phoned him everyday with no luck then i drove to his place to find that the place was frean empty,i was told he left without a trace...Then a week after i had left countless voice messeges on his phone some lady sms'ed me to tell that he had skipped the country and i was not the only girl he scammed,he scammed the girl he was staying with thousands and thousands and 5 other girls...I know that i was taken for a ride and have noone to blame but myself and i know chances of me getting my money back are slim but i would like to see some justice done to this JACK ASS...So if anyone knows of TOBY WILLIAMS he is no good..

    Just so you all can close off this line of enquiry, my name is Toby Williams and I believe I am the Thailand based person referred to in the 2015 posts shown below. I appreciate I share the name of this person who was up to no good in South Africa and am sure that those people posting are trying to help. However I have never been to South Africa (although would love to visit the country) and simply share the name of the actual perpetrator.

    It's unclear whether the references to me in these recent posts are as a result of legitimate although misguided good samaritans or someone trying to cause harm. The nature of my job is I do exist somewhat in the public eye and I have had a couple of occasions in the past where people who have an interest in tarnishing my reputation have attempted to do so. Hopefully this is just a case of someone trying to help without giving due consideration to the idea that a name is not unique to one person.

    Best of luck for those trying to find the culprit and let me know if there is anything I can do to help although I honestly can't imagine what that might be.

    I met Toby Williams 4 weeks ago in Pattaya. Apparently he is working for Braodgate Advisory (owned by DeVere). He is selling financial products.

    I have tried searching all visible publicly available Facebook profiles by the name of Toby Williams, but I found no one who resembles the suspect. The only solid link I found was the Youtube video with a very clear shot of him. The person seeking Mr. Toby Williams has confirmed that Mr. Toby Williams does not work for The DeVere group anymore and that they could not point out his current location. I do know that he is still in Thailand. Please, make some calls and do your job. This guy has scammed many people, here are some link with complaints within Thailand itself Please reply to this message as soon as possible

    As far as we know, he is currently located in Thailand. The person who offered the reward for finding Toby Williams recently posted the ad on Craigslist, here's the link: I have confirmed with my close friend, who is a Investigating Officer for the Thai Immigration Police, that Mr. Toby Williams has not yet exited the country by plane or border and also that they haven't got a solid case, seeing as most of the people he scammed has given up finding him and he seems to travel from country to country and then seeking asylum in Thailand after scamming some innocent victims in different countries. I was about to give up myself after I saw the complaint while searching Google and then stumbled upon a South African Police report. I told the guy who offered the reward to keep his money as it became personal, because this Mr. Toby Williams took a dump in my backyard by taking advantage of innocent women and I want South Africa to make an example of him.

    Here is some more information on him which I found on his LinkedIn page after doing some research. He graduated from the Nottingham University of Business in 2006, which is located in the United Kingdom. Here's the link:,0,w

    Hi. I am a concerned South African living in Thailand and I stumbled upon this by pure coincidence. Long story short, I was seeking part-time work and came upon this ad where some guy was posting that he'd pay a finders fee if anyone had information regarding the where abouts of a guy named Toby Williams. He is not American, he is in fact from the United Kingdom and has scammed many foreigners in Thailand out of apparent pension funds etc., etc. Here is a video of him talking for a company that he use to work for, the guy who posted the ad on the craigslist website confirmed that he has made contact with this "DeVere Group" which is the company where the suspect was employed at the time the youtube video was recorded. Here's the link:
