Fraudulant Appliance Repair Company

This company by the name of Appliance Wizards also known as Pateco home repairs is a fraudulent company. They take deposits and appliances from customers and never return. I have discovered many cases of the same crime committed online by the same company. Once I paid the deposit into the account, Appliance Wizards couldn't be contacted - The minute I call them off another phone this "Warren" answers and makes excuses. We drive to the address of Appliance Wizards - 36 Hunter street, Kya Sands - The company doesn't exist. After investigation, the FNB account number 62451543021 provided by "Warren" is owned by Leston Moodley t/a PaTeco Home repairs. PaTeco Home repairs is also a fraudulent company owned by Seema Behari and Leston Moodley. Same company - TJ Home repairs 011 857 2820 and 011 857 1040 and 081 323 1349. I hope that no one else will be defrauded. Please don't contact this company. A case has been opened with the Police

    This guy has done the same thing to me. I paid the 50% deposit and a day before he was supposed to come round to my house to do the repair he called me from a Private Number. I immediately got suspicious and started Googling all his details and found this post. I wish I knew about this before I did the payment.

    The number he called me from was 081 764 4799 with a landline number of 011 857 2820 and an address of 12 York Street in Randburg.

    What can the police really do if we report him? We don't have an ID number for this guy!

    Now operating as Home Buddyz or 1Homebuddyz. Received a quote for a TV repair, requires payment upfront for spares, VAT number is one digit short, address given does not exist (16 Styn Str, Wynburg, Sandton). Phone number is 0813231349 or 0118572820. Leston Moodley again as the contact.

    Can't the police catch this guy somehow? Sting operation?

    Leston Moodley and kie did the same with us - took full payment and appliance from us and never returned. When phoning the following numbers: 0813231349 or 0813231388 different people answer the phones, Wayne, Kevin and Leston. The company address does not exist and neither does the landline.
