Driving license fraud

Location: Boksburg
Crime Date: 22 April 2014
Reported Date: 23 April 2014

Driving license fraud

I was trying to renew my driving license in  Boksburg and from the Traffic Dept. I was told that I should have a copy of my documents and I can make the copy on the opposite side of the License Department. The lady who was doing the copies told me that there is a person who can help me with that - Mr. Charles Correia , who is the owner of a shop and second hand cars garage on the corner of Reservoir and Bernie Str.
Charles said that it is going to cost me R1000 cash and the license is going to be ready after 3 weeks and he is going to keep it in his safe and I can come to fetch it.
I was out of the country and came back on April/22/2014 to collect my license and there was no license to be collected. Mr. Charles Correia stated that I own him another R500 and " he is going to transfer the case to the lady who works for him".
I wish to prevent the other people from Mr. Charles Correia ... He continues to take the money from the people promising that he is going to arrange the renewal of their driving licenses.

Wesmon and Associates - website selling scam

Location: DURBAN
Crime Date: 23 April 2014
Reported Date: 23 April 2014

Wesmon and Associates - website selling scam

Mr Andre Du Toit has been in the employment of an established Website development company. He has posted several adverts on the gumtree website, advertising ecommerce sites which generate income. He sent me regular emails asking when I would like to get started and several months later I paid him R3000 to provide me a website. He insisted that it would take a maximum of one week to complete. He eventually provided a link to a site 2 weeks later but the site looked strange. It was familiar to me because he tried to sell me the same site several months ago when I mailed him from another email address! It was in a foreign language and very garbled, almost like the contents of a web trash can. He assured me that he just needs to load the engine and it will be functional. 2 months later I got nothing from him except advertisement emails for more sites. When I asked him what's happened he used excuses such as he was sick etc. Upon careful examination, I noticed that his email was different from the initial one used. Apparently he left his company and started his own company called "Wesmon and Associates", piggy-backing of his previous company's reputation and clientelle! He requested more money at this stage and I eventually was R3000 poorer, with no site or refund. 

I have discovered that:
- Andre Du toit has scammed several others and tries to resell the same sites.
- He has some knowledge in his field but has built up a client base from his previous employer, who he has stolen from.
- He has posted NO physical address or landline number on his site, which is indicative of his intent to con, scam and steal.
- His website has been tailored to create the impression of an established business. He is only in existence for 6 MONTHS! he also makes reference to a publishing company which has no affiliation with him- I checked with the company.

Mr Andre Du Toit / Wesmon & Associates are fraudsters. Do not pay him any money, rather get a reputable company to do your site

Leon Opperman - Scamster

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 30 March 2014
Reported Date: 22 April 2014

Leon Opperman - Scamster

I had been a victim of the same Leon Opperman. Bought a trailer from him of Junk mail. He told me he lived in Centurion and gave me a address in Wilhelmina road which turned out to be somebody else's  premises. He is a sweet talker and entertain you with fracas which include "trust and integrity". Also how he can't understand why people can't trust each other anymore. He apparently had build his business on integrity.
After a long phone call in afrikaans I really believed this is a genuine person and one of 'ons mense' our guys and I transferred R3000 in the form of a 'cash send' into a so called RMB account with a reference no.  574737 that is linked to his mobile no.
He didn't answer any calls after the money where transferred.
He is a ruthless thieve and use Junkmail and other internet based cites as his pray ground.

I lived in the UK for 12 years and have done almost 80% of my shopping on Ebay and Amazone and never had a problem with the other party. Which include suppliers from mainland Europe, Eastern europe, Ireland, Hongkong, China, and the US. You pay upfront through Paypal and your goods will be delivered to your front door in a couple of days. Back home though, my first internet transaction with a  'boertjie' turned out to be a scam and fake.
This is a shame on us as a nation.

If you had similar experiences with this person I am going to include the SAPS case no. so we can link the cases together and see if we can't stop this guy and nail him down.
I reported the case to the Welbeked police. case no. 93/03/2014
The investigating officer is CONST. Masemola contact no. 011 9641213 or mob. 082 4616278
I am also going to get Capt. Strijdom the station comander involved in the case and will post contact details soon.
Feel free to contact me Duan Vogel at 0718879403 if you have more information.

Fake loan companies

Location: PRETORIA
Crime Date: 9 April 2014
Reported Date: 22 April 2014

Fake loan companies

We applied for a BUSINESS loan. From the following companies Wonga and EC finance. Both loans were approved. We were asked to send 3 months bank statements, copy of ID, CK Docs and tax number. After the loan was approved we had to deposit 3750 for handling fees, We did this as it all looked legitamate. After I recieved the proof of deposit did I realise it was a scam. I called the bank immediately, they closed the individuals account as well as the "agents" account. A case of fraud has been opened at Sinoville SAPS but hav yet to hear from the bank or SAPS. The landline number is NOT a telkom number but a NEOTEL number. Now there are funny debit orders going off our business account.

WES - KAAP POLISIE

Reported Date: 21 April 2014

WES - KAAP POLISIE

Het Helen Zille 'n korrupte polisiemag in die Wes - Kaap?  Hoekom stel hulle nie die media in kennis van al die betogings in die provinsie nie?  Word hulle dalk omgekoop om stil te bly.  Dit is ons mense wat tydens betogings op die N1 naby die lughawe met klippe gegooi word - Zille en die DA is baie UITGESPROKE oor ander dinge, maar as hulle in die soeklig kom, bly hulle stil en praat dit weg.  Ons gaan nêrens nie - ons wil weet wat aangaan dat die DA se "sondes" nie op die lappe kom nie?  Daar is tog iets aan die gang - WAT?
