Abuse Retired Person

Location: Germiston
Crime Date: 31 October 2014
Reported Date: 31 October 2014

Abuse Retired Person

Today I am still without utilities. I went to the Germiston Magistrates court yesterday and got an order against the landlord Alf Fouché. I travelled to Pretoria where he lives and made sure the police handed the document to him. 
I am 85 years old and am on a waiting list to live in a retirement village. 

I had a verbal agreement with Alheit, and his wife Hester Fouché to rent a cottage at his private home school Totustuus registration nr GDE reg:EN700400628 at 20 Hull Street, Sunnyridge.

The agreement was that he does not want to sign a lease agreement and that I can "rent for three months from 1 October 2014, then we will talk after that", was his words. On 2 October 2014, I paid R2500 into his FNB account. I bought pre-paid electricity and he is using the electricity for his school. So it appears to me.

The place was very dirty and he sent someone to clean. It still was not clean. The shower does not have a door (is standing aside). 

I cannot shower. He told me to repair the shower door and deduct it from the rent for November 2014. I told him I do not trust that. He put that in writing on WhatsApp to my daughter. (She got into trouble with him to deduct repairs from the rent where she is renting the two bedroom house on the same premises. Him and his wife made terrible scenes at her workplace and sent defaming character after my daughter made an agreement to rather pay the rent and not deducting the repairs from the rent. They are two persons who cannot be trusted. Their words cannot be honoured). Fouché said the neighbour will repair the shower door. Until today it never happened. The whole bathroom is under water when I am showering and it is very dangerous because I can slip and fall.

On 13 October 2014 he told me in the presence of the children at his school, that I have to leave by 30 October 2014. That is not 20 days notice to start with. He defamed me in the presence of children that I do not know.

From 13 October 2014, he does not greet me, and the children are extra noisy.

On 27 October 2014, his wife Hester was here with an aggressive attitude and hints. She went into the main house unlawfully and took the pre-paid meter away. I was about to load pre-paid electricity and now it is impossible. Fouché also switched off the water on 27 October 2014. I have been deprived and disturbed of enjoying use of the property, shower, doing dishes and laundry five days before the end of the month. I did absolutely nothing wrong. 

I am very depressed because of the treatment. I owe no-one money. This is the fourth time that I am treated like dirt by a landlord. I always pay my rent. 

I am not going to move out by 31 October 2014, because there is no water and electricity to do the dishes, to do my laundry and clean the place.

On 29 October 2014, Fouché sent a woman to tell me to be out by Saturday 1 November 2014. 
I am claiming from Fouché to pay the moving company, they are also coming to pack, to pay me for suffering the last five days of October 2014, after I paid rent.

Some of my belongings are packed in boxes and stored in the wendy house and outside. Two of the boxes are emptied.

I know very well that you actually protect the landlord, but I am going to report this wherever I can. The law is on my side because I paid my rent, I am an honourable person and I did nothing wrong to deserve this.
I cannot cook, because I have 12 units left. Fouché took the pre-paid machine and prevents me from loading electricity.
I do get one meal from Meals on Wheels Monday to Friday. That is one meal per day. I cannot cook breakfast or dinner because there is no electricity.
This is abuse at its best. I cannot watch tv and I did not shower now for four days. It is against the constitution and the World Health Organisation. The children here at his school are allowed to smoke here at my front door and windows. That is against the rules of the Department of Education and bad for my health.
I am still waiting for Alheit Fouché to switch on the electricity and water. The magistrate has the proof that I paid for everything that I had to. 
I suspect that Fouché is going to be a bravo because he is an "old policeman". There is still no electricity and no water. He needs to be arrested.

RECKLESS DRIVER AND PARENT

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 29 October 2014
Reported Date: 30 October 2014

RECKLESS DRIVER AND PARENT

This guy came out at the entrance of a creche in Weltevredenpark and drove in front of oncoming traffic.  I then overtook him (as he was now driving 30km/hour) and I had to brake for something in the road, and he for some reason came from the side, trying to run me off the road, which he nearly did.  He then overtook me and drove in front of me recklessly, pressing on his brakes suddenly, so that i would make an accident, which i luckily did not do.  He had two small kids in the car with him, which kids were not fastened, neither were they in car chairs at all.  As a woman, I felt intimidated and threatened by this guy and I was scared for the kids (that was flung around in his car like little rag dolls).  This guy's license should be revoked permanently, he is a big threat on the roads.

Bakkie sale OLX

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 29 October 2014
Reported Date: 29 October 2014

Bakkie sale OLX

This lady advertised a Toyota Hilux Bakkie for sale R46000.  We responded to the advertisement several times, got all the information we needed and decided to take the bakkie.

She is based in Midrand and we are based in Bloemfontein.  We decided to drive to Midrand to view the bakkie and finalise the deal, but she required a R3000 holding deposit. She sent ABSA cash sent services instructions to pay the money so that it will show immediately.

Upon arrival the address was wrong and she did not answer any phone calls any longer.  She gave her husbands cell number earlier and we spoke to him as well.  But now all the phones are switched off.

I saw a second advertisement with the same name and phone number.  

Please help me stop them from catching somebody else with the same trick!

The ad's are http://johannesburg.olx.co.za/toyota-hilux-double-cab-with-a-canopy-for-sale-urgently-iid-735820674

Crime Date: 15 October 2014

Gumtree Fraud

Hi All,

 

Please be aware of the man by the name of Rodney Lamos - He asked if he could buy several things I was selling online all at once which I agreed upon - he sent me a fake proof of payment from Nedbank and I got a sms - it all looked so real and legitimate. I got a call soon after wanting to make the pick up urgently - I became suspicious and decided to check the proof of payment out - On Nedbanks internet banking website you can verify a proof of payment - which came up with errors - I was lucky not to be swindled. His email is stocktrade@workmail.co.za and his number is +2760 459 3781

I hope that spineless people like this man gets karmas full treatment !

Campmaster Town and Country 210 trailer for sale

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 27 October 2014
Reported Date: 27 October 2014

Campmaster Town and Country 210 trailer for sale

Scammers advertising a Campmaster trailer for sale for R4,000. Called the number of a guy called "Nico" (061 177 2855) and he said there are several guys already coming to look at the trailer, but nobody has "committed" yet. He said he would keep it for first person to put down a holding deposit. I asked him how much and he said R1,000 was fine.

He said I could just go to a Checkers or Spar and deposit R1,000 at the cash counter, they would then give me a receipt with an M-number and a pin (he said I should use 2020) - and then I should sms him the M-number, which he could use to withdraw the money on his side.

I grew suspicious when I saw the exact same pictures advertised under another ad on OLX, by a guy named "Chris" for R6,000 (cell 082 744 9542). This number didn't work when I called it.

I called "Nico" and asked him about it, upon which he just put the phone down in my ear.

I was lucky - I didn't get caught. There are several other adverts for trailers on Gumtree and OLX at very good prices, but which also looks supicious, by the following names:

Deon Miller 079 364 6206
Chris - 082 744 9642
Nico - 061 177 2855
Graham Beukes - 072 631 3923
Leon de Villiers - 061 328 3199

Cellphone and Wallet mugging

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 25 October 2014
Reported Date: 27 October 2014

Cellphone and Wallet mugging

I was walking out of the Shop "Dodo's", on Saturday, with 1500 on my wallet and a cellphone "Lumia 520",. I was about to go inside Edgars when i realised that my Cellphone and Wallet had gone missing. In my wallet I had R 1500 and Bank card. I then tried to track my route thinking maybe i left my things inside the shop but then i couldn't any trace. By 4:50 i call the bank Call centre to report the missing/lost card, then i asked if have there been any withdrawals after the R 1500 i withdraw when going to buy the something, but they told me that nothing was withdrawn, so they deactivated the card, but the following day when i phoned the bank to confirm if the cancellation was really processed, i was told that the money was withdrawn the day the card got lost. how is this possible. Bank Name FNB
