Fraud


We received a call from Max (Maxwell) Malinga enquiring about our goods. He indicated that he was from a company J E Construction in Lydenburg. He asked for information on the goods, then a quote and later requested a pro forma invoice. After each request he followed up and thanked us for the prompt response. Shortly afterwards he forwarded a proof of payment, but it was double the amount as indicated on the pro forma. He phoned to follow up and was very concern that their financial department made such a big mistake. He indicated later that two (2) payments that were switched. He then phoned and asked if we can pay the amount that was paid more, can be paid over to the following: ABSA, Westgate branch, JE Construction, account no. 4085976022 & branch code 632005. A name of Linda Jones was also used on their letter and order to us.   Their information that they used are as follows: J E Construction Reg. no.:                      2009/022028/23 VAT Reg. no.:                        4200118851 Physical address:         Plot no. 1221, Ehlanzeni, Lydenburg, 1120 Postal address:                        P.O.
