We received details that the account was opened at Westgate Branch in JHB but the address on their website and invoice is in Port Nolloth in Northern Cape.  The company name they trade under is Rand Tool Suppliers, but when payment was made it was under the account name Flex Engineering t/a Rand Tool Suppliers.  Their website on the internet is Rand Tool Suppliers Mechanical and they do all the Triplex Mining Tools.  We have sent them an order for the product Triplex RC2700s 400mm Drill Bits 300 units of which we paid a deposit of R50 000.00 into the FNB account number 62505782905.  We went to the bank of which they could not give us more information regarding the account, all they could tell me is that it is a business account linked to a personal name, but it is not the same as the account name given to us.  We opened up a case of fraud by the police station and a fraud case by the bank. We transferred the funds into the account on the 26/03/2015 of which they said delivery will be on Saturday 28/03/2015.  The truck never arrived.  We only realised that we have been scammed on Monday 30/03/2015 when we could not reach any of the persons mentioned on the numbers provided.  We want to block these guys from doing any business and doing anyone else in like they did with us.
