    I and a friend also got scamed the same way out of 30 000. Exactly the same way. Is was the same 2 guys also in soshanguwe.
    People watch out for these 2 guys. Its only the one guy who speaks to you and he is telling you a bunch of lies but its sounds very true.
    If someone ever gets in contact with this guy, he told me his name was Tino but thats also a lie. Please contact me on 0828262030.

    "Seuntjie" would you perhaps elaborate what encouraged you to do a deeper investigation on them, specially on a crimereport site since you had "success?"

  • Proff 29 Aug 2013, 08:41 AM

    Yet these bastards are still continuing... I cant imagine how much money they have stolen by now. cost me 46000 and at the end I have nothing to show for it. That money they use to buy real krugerrands / coins to lure business people in to conn. They cant stick to their word, extremely secretive and unprofessional. specialized conns... Stay away folks...be safe rather than sorry after wasting also your time and money like us. There is legit business elsewhere to make an honest living.

    For any cases relating to this matter or if you suspect some scams,please email me captain mtanda of the hawks on mtanda@ymail.com thank you.

    The coins are not fake. They are real. We tested them with a Fischer. As a first time gold buyer, I was shocked that this happens. I did not know that you don't get "good deals" - naively going into a transaction with a bunch of crooks who we took at their word! Heaven forbid one ACTUALLY believes in the goodness of people. Claiming they did not want the coins but wanted farm equipment. Whatever! I started this post to warn those first time buyers that this is a SCAM and yes, go to an accredited dealer ONLY. Any deal that looks too good - IS too good to be true and you will be lucky to leave with your life. As for the crooks - SHAME ON YOU!!! Preying on unsuspecting people!! It's people like you that send this country and others to hell!!

    I think ,the best way to stay out of trouble is to avoid buying illegal or stolen goods from people,if someone need to invest in gold,must visit companies like scoin shop or invest gold for advise,because you will be the one who is promoting crime by visiting them to buy this fake or stolen coins.

    I fell victim to the same scam towards the end of January. These criminals operate from the Pretoria area although they profess to be from Bloemfontein. They meet buyers in a rural area and pretend to be Botswana citizens, hence their struggle in selling Krugerrands without a South African ID. The participants are a well spoken man by the name of Stefhan an a 75 year old widow and her son.

    You're NOT a pastor. You're a CROOK and you WILL be held accountable - if not here, one day when you meet your Maker. You should be ASHAMED of yourself using God to further your own purposes. DISGUSTING! And it's NOT only ME idiot! Can't you read??? You're an ABSOLUTE CROOK and I pray that one day SOON you get your come uppance!

    Seuntjie! you are 100% rite,this looks like a shady business that went sour,i wish this poor pastor can come forward with the side of his story,first of all where in south africa you can buy a gold 1oz krugerrand for R6000 this days?we buying genuine gold coins every day from people,why only you fernanda?do you have a lisence to buy and sell gold?you should have took the pastor to a registered gold coin exchange.

  • Username1422 1 Jan 2013, 08:36 PM

    Lies "seuntjie" - if that is even your name. You're probably the crook himself. This post is not against black people - it is against criminals and the other post is almost identical to what happened to us. I don't believe for a second that you're legit. I think you're the thieves themselves.

  • seuntjie 1 Jan 2013, 08:24 PM

    I once met with this pastor and they showed me the coins and they took me to the house in pretoria where i tested all 29 1oz gold krugerrands and i payed them,that was a very good person i'ved met,i do not understand this other comments,i'm a white farmer from limpopo.we must understand that not all black people are thieves,we must learn that.

  • jacques28 10 Oct 2012, 12:00 PM

    HI there,Me and my partner got conned in the same way. The claimed to have 87 1oz krugers and that they were looking to sell for R6000 each to gain money for farming equipment. We spoke to a man named victor,another named amos who is the farm elders son and another named moses who is also the farm elders son and also the brother of amos as he claimed.....we went to middelburg to meet them at the police station as we agreed with them and when we got there they changed the arrangements to meet at nandos to take us to the farm elder on the farm in middelburg and thats when we took the gap and bolted out of there, you must be very carefull,these oaks are dangerous and the opperate from PTA.
