On 1 April 2014, we invested R100 000 over a period of 12 months with Mr George Herman, CEO of GCR Close Corporation. We were advised this investment will be handled through Africa Rising.  For the first 3 months our returns/dividends would be R12 500.00 pm and thereafter i.e. the next nine months our dividends would be R24 000.00 pm.  Todate, we have not received any dividends.  We have have numerous communication via whatsapp, email, sms and telephone calls with George Herman, our investment consultant.  Promises and excuses are too many to mention. It has gotten to the point George Herman refuses to respond to messages, he does not answer our telephone calls and has blocked us from whatsapp. Mr Herman is patently aware these funds he invested for us via Africa Rising are used to support disadvantaged communities e.g. we uplift, mentor and provide life skills to addicts, prostitutes, homeless families etc.  As a result, our organization has had to close which has had a huge unexplained negative impact on those lives/families who we were supporting.

    Dear Jen A wise woman of character and integrity possesses an inner knowledge of truth before she publicly expresses her opinion on a specific matter.
