Fake bookings at guesthouse by Peter Peterson

I smell a rat when receiving a phone call by mr Peter Peterson from JJ Construction in Isando Johannesburg. Given address of 178 Fleming Road and cell no 0604534293 email ppeterson798@gmail.com He wants to make a booking for 5 workers for almost a month at our guesthouse. When I search his details I found this page. Thanks goodness you saved me a lot of trouble!!

    This couple seem to be all over the country now. Trail started in KZN, then Gauteng and now in the Western Cape.
    They have recently contacted our business in Vredenburg and tried exactly the same scam they have used all over. Strangely they still use the same email address (ppeterson798@gmail.com), as well as the same names (Mr Peter Peterson and Mrs Peterson). Modus operandi also unchanged. They would order items / services and then "overpay" (normally cheque deposit via atm) and then insist on a refund. Fortunately the report-a-crime website quickly helped us to identify the transaction as a scam. Please beware that the people involved are now operating in the Western Cape for the time being. Other relevant information: business name used is JJ Construction and current cell number in use is 073 905 1276. The "refund bank account" does however seem to change regularly (in our case a Capitec current account).
