I got an sms for an 087 number regarding some eskom tender, and had to go to some website to "register". When i clicked on the website, something looked extremely familiar, then it hit me: the toilet paper business that was used to scam me out of R 25,000.00 over a year and a half ago, Bytes and Smart Technologies, which later changed to a number of companies, including Afrimills. Just a few words have been changed to accommodate the new Eskom scam, but the rest of the site is a carbon copy of their toilet paper distribution scam website.
One thing that really gets to me is ho these guys are still in operation even now? They have been running scams for over 4 years, have had physical offices, cases opened against them and the owner's personal information handed over to the police. Apart from that, how does FNB still have them as their clients??? I have been to FNB, and they refused to freeze the account pending investigations, and was told that they could not, even though I had a case number.
This is mean to warn others, not about this scam alone, but about the fact that "once they ask for money" it is a scam. This platform has helped a lot of people in the past, and hope this will do just the same.
