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if the account number provided was in the name of Animal Taxi, needless to say it wasn't and the money had already been withdrawn - five minutes after I had eft'd it.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

Crime 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.

Investment

Location: CAPE TOWN
Crime Date: 1 April 2014
Reported Date: 21 November 2014

Investment

On 1 April 2014, we invested R100 000 over a period of 12 months with Mr George Herman, CEO of GCR Close Corporation. We were advised this investment will be handled through Africa Rising.  For the first 3 months our returns/dividends would be R12 500.00 pm and thereafter i.e. the next nine months our dividends would be R24 000.00 pm.  Todate, we have not received any dividends.  We have have numerous communication via whatsapp, email, sms and telephone calls with George Herman, our investment consultant.  Promises and excuses are too many to mention. It has gotten to the point George Herman refuses to respond to messages, he does not answer our telephone calls and has blocked us from whatsapp. Mr Herman is patently aware these funds he invested for us via Africa Rising are used to support disadvantaged communities e.g. we uplift, mentor and provide life skills to addicts, prostitutes, homeless families etc.  As a result, our organization has had to close which has had a huge unexplained negative impact on those lives/families who we were supporting.

Alexandra Trampoline Club Coach Raped me

Location: JOHANNESBURG
Crime Date: 1 January 2004
Reported Date: 19 November 2014

Alexandra Trampoline Club Coach Raped me

This happened in when I was 12 years old, as an aspiring young gymnast. We were told to come watch a movie at the coaches( Hudson Nxumalo of ATC ) place, on arrival I was the only one that was there and he told me the others are on their way. It was a one room house with a bed and a couch; he put the movie in and I was watching while sitting by the door. I started feeling sleepy, he told me to sleep on the bed; it made sense to me at the time as there was only one couch so I slept on the bed. Deep in my sleep I could feel an intense pressure on top of me, realising that I am waking up he blocked my mouth with his hand and forced himself on me. I could not understand what had happened, he told me never to tell anyone; took me to the taxis and gave me taxi fare.

I was so ashamed of myself I could not even tell my parents what had happened to me, only found courage to tell my mother two weeks after the incident. My mother advised that we go report the matter to police but I couldn't, I was so scared knowing what this man can do to me, I was horrified.

As a grown up now as I'm 23 years old, I realise that this man is still working with young kids and can not help but wonder how many young girls he is victimising. We do not need such people in society, he could be raping your child as we speak.
