Car Scam Artist Johnny 0719624296

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 30 January 2015
Reported Date: 27 February 2015

Car Scam Artist Johnny 0719624296

Johnny 0719624296 advertised a BMW 750 for R130000 in Port Elizabeth. I contacted the man, offered him R100000 and he said, he is happy with the amount. I'm staying in Cape Town, I made all the necessary arrangements with Johnny to view the car on Saturday, 01 feb15 and bought the tickets to PE. Late on Friday afternoon he sent me an sms, telling me, there was another buyer, if I pay a refundable deposit of R5000, he will keep the car. I checked Johnny out on the Internet, was advertising quite a lot of cars and the company he works for, Inter Africa, looked also fine to me.  I paid the deposit. On Saturday morning I flew to PE and waited for Johnny to pick me up at the Airport like agreed. 5 hours later I booked into a hotel and booked the flight back for Sunday. Then Johnny contacted me and explained, there was Auditors at the dealer ship and he could not help me that day and he was very sorry and he told me, he would send the car to Cape Town. A driver, his name is Moses, cell no 0603910116, phoned me and asked, where he has to drop off the car. I sent him my adress. The next day Moses phoned me and told me, the Police stopped him and there was a R4000 fine. I phoned Johnny and complained about the situation, Johnny asked me nicely to send Moses the money and we can deduct it from the purchase price. After a couple of days the car was still not in Cape Town and I phoned Johnny and Moses what's going on. There was a couple of stories about paperwork and some other car which was also on the Truck and they were looking for an additional R 6000. I complained a lot to Johnny and Moses about it, but Johnny assured me, if I would pay Moses the R 6000, I would receive the car the next morning. I'm still waiting...... Johnny advertises a lot of cars on OLX, Ananzi and other webpages. Watch out, he makes a life with the money, other people work for.

Fraud

I sent my TV to this Company to be fixed and he promised a turn around time of 3 days. i had to pay a deposit of R 1 250.00, which was paid. I followed up with him (Kieth Kasinaubare) and he kept telling me that all was in order he was waiting for the part from Samsung. after that he never answered his phones. After i had sent him an sms to tell him i wanted my money and TV back he said he will ask Samsung to bring it back because there don't seem to have the screen. so i told him when i will be collecting my things. he agreed.

So i phoned him again to find out what time he will be in the office so i can come through, he again never answered his phones till today. i then phoned the Company Next door to his, they told me he has moved offices and they don't know where to..... I would never advise anyone to take anything for fixing to these people. they are Thieves an Fraudsters....!!! People be aware. XBytes Repairs Center / Technologies is Fraud.

The car that ruined my life

Kolev motors sold me a car that has been in a accident and breaking non stop on day 1 I sent the car back to them to fix 3 times before the problem was solved they then said I have no further claim from them for repairs. 4 months later my cars turbo broke. They told me they are rmi approved so they fixed my turbo etc at full price to myself and SA warranties. Only to discover later by an trusted source that they fitted recon parts to my car. I than had to buy a new turbo etc out of my pocket to fit they just ignore me flat and worked their way around the system. It also took them 4 months to fix my car i sent it back no less than 5 times. Avoid them!!!

Revenge Arson for serving justice

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 22 February 2015
Reported Date: 23 February 2015

Revenge Arson for serving justice

We had a guest staying with us from our previous employer in johannesburg. Having worked with him for a year, when he asked to stay with us when he came to Cape Town for an interview we obliged. 

Needless to say, after 2 weeks he still hadn't left and informed us that he cannot  return to his job in Johannesburg and asked us to help him get a waiter job in Cape Town. As my husband is the Manager of a top-class restaurant at the waterfront we managed to get him a job, and i spent hours helping him learn the menu etc as he is Egyptian and Arab, thus struggled with English. 

After a week of tutoring he eventually got on the floor at the restaurant as a waiter on Monday 16 Feb. That night he stole another waiters wallet and committed Credit Card theft. As my husband was the manager on duty, hes duty included to get our "house guest" arrested. 

He was charged with Theft and transferred from the holding cells to Polsmoor. on Sunday morning i got his bail money and packed his belongings to take it to him as i want nothing more to do with him. 

after arriving at Polsmoor, a place neither of us are familiar with, we were informed that the office was closed and they cant help us until Monday

upon arriving home, still with all his belongings in our car, i saw him walking casually away with our bag over his shoulder. We got out to give him his stuff, while this was happening i looked up at our flat where flames where roaring out our top floor bedrooms. 

I ran up, as the police were apprehending him. Apparently he was bailed out Sunday morning. He came back to our flat to get his stuff (which was with us in the car on the way to him). 

He took all my husband and my clothes as well as all my 2 year old daughters belongings, piled them on our bed, set fire and put his matress on it to aggravate the flames. 

We got in to a house smoldering, as a few neighbors had noticed the smoke and saw him climbing in and out the flat window. 

We have lost everything we own, all my kids things.  is this revenge arson? 

The cops caught him running away, and put him in the van. surly a dangerous individual, with no one to vouch for him should not qualify for bail. I am scared for my life, and the safety of my daughter, as my husband is rarely home and we spend a lot of time alone at home. 

Please can you set my mind at ease with what will happen now. We have opened a case arson against him, and is being charged on Tuesday 24/02 

Am i safe? what do i do? with a loony who will set my bed on fire, i'm  struggling to feel safe or sleep at night.

Fraudster Dave Smith

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 23 February 2015
Reported Date: 23 February 2015

Fraudster Dave Smith

Beware this person. Dave Smith of www.coastalnetworks.co.za. 
January: He used Bid or Buy to get me to buy an old computer from him, then claimed he could not get his money from Bid or Buy so wanted to deal directly. I deposited the money into his account and had my courier collect - they were unable to make contact. He promised to deliver to the courier but did not do so. After a couple of weeks I contacted him and he promised to deliver to the courier the following day, and he did not. All this time the courier has been trying to contact him but he does not answer his cellphone and no longer responds to emails. Almost the two months later and I have opened a case of theft against Dave Smith but who knows how long that will take. Hopefully he will end up in a road block one day and this will catch up with him.

His website has no contact details and he uses the address 79 Highlands Road, Parkhill, Durban although I have not been able to confirm whether this is legitimate.
I am sure I'm not the first or last person to fall for this scammer but I hope someone is saved by reading this.

Shaun Veldsman Stabbed with knive

Crime Date: 21 February 2015
Reported Date: 23 February 2015

Shaun Veldsman Stabbed with knive

Cape Town - South African Television Match Official Shaun Veldsman was assaulted in his car after officiating Saturday's Super Rugby match between the Stormers and Blues at Newlands.

According to Netwerk24, Veldsman was attacked in his 'bakkie' on the N2 after leaving the stadium.

The incident occurred at about 21:00, with Veldsman on his way to Robertson. He was stabbed in his lung.

SARU's head of corporate affairs, Andy Colquhoun, said Veldsman's window on the driver's side was broken and someone stabbed him with a sharp object.

"He has a hole in his lung after being stabbed," said Colquhoun.

Veldsman managed to escape from the vehicle and ran away, before someone helped him on the side of the road.

The car's ignition was damaged but only Veldsman's cellphone was stolen. His bag with laptop was still lying on the back seat.

Veldsman was in a stable condition in the Stellenbosch Medi Clinic on Sunday.

It remains unsure if he'll be able to be in the TMO booth for Saturday's Six Nations match between Ireland and England in Dublin.
