Red Golf R hijacked

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 21 November 2014
Reported Date: 26 November 2014

Red Golf R hijacked

I was hijacked by (apparently 4 men), could only remember 2 and hijacked my red golf R - BP 40 YV GP in Kennilworth/Turfontein on Friday night.

It has distcinctively loud breaks and is missing the left side mirror. It baffles me because it is not a car which is easily missed and concerned that they may commit a highspeed crime with it and Tracker does not want to help locate it because I did not make a payment.

So please ANY help.

Fake Private Investigator

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 18 November 2014
Reported Date: 26 November 2014

Fake Private Investigator

We needed a private investigator to find our cousin who is missing. We browsed on the internet and found him close by as he is in Centurion. We sent an e-mail to zulprivateinvestigator@gmail.com. He responded using this number 081 512 9496 and his name is Eward Azan. We made an appointment for the following day where he met my  brother and my cousin's mother. The strange thing is that he didn't park in front of our office but he was driving. He explained how he works and requested info on our cousin and some documents including his id copy which we gave him. He demanded a deposit of R2500 which we paid him. The following day he claimed to have a lead and demanded R2000 for petrol as they work as a team which we gave him. He wanted more money again and we started to be suspicious of him. My husband demanded proof of info he said he has including pictures.  All this time he is phoning us and updating us on what's happening.  When we want info,he refuses to give us. My husband told him that we won't give him any money until he give us the info. I told him to stop communicating with me or the mother and  contact the my husband only with the info but he is avoiding him. We have nothing from him and when we call him, he says these things take time and he stories don't add up.

Prince Dhlomo

Location: Boksburg
Crime Date: 19 November 2014
Reported Date: 25 November 2014

Prince Dhlomo

Man by the name of Prince Dhlomo ID number 680531 5467 08 0 (pretty sure it is fake) called in connection with buying a cell phone. He sent through proof of payment to us as well as a copy of his ID. He gave us an address which i assume is fictitious. 

The money did not clear in the account and on calling to ask him about this said a courier would be calling to drop it off. The courier then called and asked for 550 upfront payment in order to drop the phone off to which we said it was for princes account, but reluctantly said we would pay. he then would not accept cash on delivery and insisted on a transfer to which we refused. 

We will be going to the police station shortly although we know nothing will be done having seen someone posting using the same id number as fraud. the name on this id was Morris Motsepe

Using my name in fraudulent activity

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 6 October 2014
Reported Date: 25 November 2014

Using my name in fraudulent activity

Some person is posing as me, Marj Murray, offering to clear credit reports. Please note this is a scam. Someone has got hold of my full name and ID and posted illegal adds on Gumtree. I have laid a charge at the SAPS and the SAFPS and have tried to get hold of people who have been scammed to also lay charges - they are reluctant to do this as trying to get your credit report cleared is also illegal.

Do not fall for ANY scam that advertises clearing your credit report - it is illegal.

Pet/kitten purchase fraud

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 22 November 2014
Reported Date: 23 November 2014

Pet/kitten purchase fraud

Our maine coon cat died and we were looking for another one.  This advert had the most beautiful kittens.  I responded to a Jules de Klerk.  Then Carrick Hartley Lowell emailed me to say that they would "vet" me to see if I was a suitable cat owner.  I sent them pics of my previous kitty and told them how distraught my small kids had been.  they were totally thrilled when they emailed me pictures of the of the kittens.  wE decided to take 2, @ R2K each.  Carrick then called me telephonically and toldme which two would suite my family and said did I want to go and collect the kitties.  I said yes, he then told me that they were actually in Swellendam and would fly them up to me with the next two hours.  I just need to transfer the money to him.  He asked me which bank we banked with and He then sent me an email detailing how to do a cash send payment to his cell phone.  078764060,  Like a foolish clot I did it. He then said it would be better if the cats were sent up the following day.  My children woke up at 4.45am so excited.  I paid the balance and phoned him, he said he was at the airport and would sms me the flight details shortly.  he then phoned me and said the crate for the kittens wasnt suitable and it needed to be a temperature controlled one as the weather was poor.  "Check your email quickly because the kitties are booked to fly in 30 mins" please quickkly eft the refundable amount of R5050 to an ABSA account - you bank with ABSA dont you so it will reflect immediately he said. He kept phoning to see if I had done the transaction as time was running out.  I di it and then immediately felt that he might have conned me.  I phoned ABSA and asked if the account number provided was in the name of Animal Taxi, needless to say it wasn't and the money had already been withdrawn - five minutes after I had eft'd it. my husband and I both phoned him and told him he was a con artist.  he was all affronted at first and then said that we had better stop our disgusting behaviour toward him as we were not fit to have his kittens??????? He then told us that he had our physical address for the dleivery and that we had better sleep with one eye open because he was going to send somebody to get us!!!  Needless to say no kittens arrived and no flight info was provided and no money has been returned. it was all the most awful hoax.  He even went so far as to say that he was a family man and had children himself and would never dream of doing something like this to children who had been so traumatised by the death of their kitty.  These are the other numbers that he called me from 0743798220, 0781130401

Hi Octaine Activeweat

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 21 November 2014
Reported Date: 21 November 2014

Hi Octaine Activeweat

Good Day All,

It is with my regret to inform you of the misleading activities that are taking place by a company named Hi Octaine Activewear, they have a company registration number and 4 members, Lameez Abrahams, Fozia Munshi, Nasser Munshi and Fatima Samsodien. They have conned myself and 4 females I know out of just under R5000, as we assumed we were purchasing Genuine Leather bags, once they received our money. There numbers were inactive and they did not respond to our mails, they sent us 3 pairs of boots of terrible quality and said that should make up for our losses, I am disgusted to learn they have done the same thing to others as well... Please be warned all... This is a scam that is long running and has made me so wary of buying goods over the internet, they will one day answer to there crimes.
