On 17 Nov 2011 a 'James Langa' Cell No 0738610746 from Bronkhorstspruit called to place an order for 70 rolls of Bitumen Membrane from Safeguard Chemicals. He asked for the invoice to be faxed to 0865865345. He was informed that goods will only be despatched once payment has been reflected in the account. He then sent a proof of Eft payment confirming that payment has been made from' Banabe Building & Construction cc'. He subsequently deposited a stolen cheque in the name of Botha Roodt Aartappelrekening at the FNB Rosebank. The money reflected in the account & the goods were despatched. It was only a few days later when the cheque reversed that we realised that there was a scam - the EFT confirmation was doctored.A 'Richard' driving a an old DYNA truck reg XFW630GP with a rubble removal signage picked up the goods. The matter is with the SAPS.
