Data entry scam on gumtree

Hi all, i received an email from a guy namely Chris, he mentioned to me that it was for admin work from home filling out applications online, he didnt state the name of the company and i didnt ask ask as his email was very professional, he advised that for every succesfull application completed a sum of r150 will be deposited into my bank account. he requested that the payent be made for training and manuel costs and the proof of payment be faxed or emailed to him, the only info i do have is his email address and fax no.(0866205361)the banking information that was supplied to me was as follows??.account name. groenewald (office admin)account number.62317753235account type. current accountbranch code. 250655 I unfortunately are one of those that fell victim to this crime and deposited a sum of R250 into this dogs account, i pray that this creates awareness and you too will not ,oose money that you didnt even have in the first place

    Astrumen is still trying to rip off people. Same details as listed above in the “offer”, so same individual. Now he is using the email:, the work from home “job” was listed on website. There are quite a few reports on this scum, found on this website. No-one has shut him down. Glad I searched Astrumen, and got the heads up from all who took the time to report him on this site.

    Well someone is at it again as i was almost scammed and the new email is
    and once again used a wix website so thanks to this group i dodged a bullet.

  • Godstruth 25 Feb 2016, 11:21 PM

    I too was almost convinced that "" offering data capturing was legit...until I got a niggling feeling and tried looking for some online presence (company profile, reviews) of it other than in the adds...The wording "Zelda Sutherland" used turned out to be the exact same used in another add on gumtree (reported as a scam) and the more I researched the more I found. Friends, it is ALL OVER the internet!!! Just type in "Inhouse551" Luckily I had not parted with any cash as yet. Shame on all of you running these scams, what ever happened to honesty and integrity? I guess if I think about it...the fact that they use gmail accounts probably is the first indication of deceit, then the fact that there was no contact details other than the email address...and the bank details were not of a company but a person... Ai, but when something sounds legit and one is in a tough spot, its easy to overlook such details. Makes me sick and sad...really! :(

    Anyone heard of a lady named Sue-Ellen Viljoen? Her email is I found her on My gut tells me this might be a scam. I haven't paid over any money as yet.

  • AMONS JARK 14 Aug 2015, 11:23 PM

    This company has come to put away every thought that is in the mind of every one, saying there was no reliable loan lender online that can provide loans, and now we all know that there are a lot of tricks find documents legitimate to have to use fraud to, so we came to announce to the public that we have some money to make good some serious people and potential customers who can be relied upon and the need for the loan, any person / organization who are looking for loans and did not get a loan as much as you should send their contact or application via e-mail, these include services provided. Refinancing, home improvement, investment loan, car loans, debt consolidation, credit line, according to the mortgage, and commercial loans, personal loans Contact email::

  • Gullible gal 6 Jul 2015, 07:01 PM

    hahaaa, the people supporting this job keep on posting the same message, copy and paste. Oh my, I consider myself an intelligent girl, but a bit gullible. Thanks guys, won't be fooled now. I needed something to help bring in the money to support my own business, but this is a bit dodgy... I can also create a wix website and fool tons of ppl into paying r200. Imagine. Only 10 gullible, or desperate ppl and you have R 2000 for doing buggerall!

  • C.o.G 26 Jan 2015, 04:06 PM

    And I wonder where these people get our email addresses. Its So Tricky because they Use Trusted Job Sites, & Since we are Looking for Jobs we keep updating our details with hopes of getting a job & earn a living, I also recieved the same scam email & was about to thank God for the Job & God just led me to this post. God doesn want to be mocked, He wasnt going to allow them to get away with it. Last year my acc got frauded 71.000, never give any1 your bank Details unless you are at work and signing a real contact to a credited acc. FNB, has become so so useless,you can never relay on them you will be just frustrating yourself even More. These people have Since changed their acc to DynamicOutsourcing what what , i Pray God plays His part & help us get Jobs that are Real. & Never Ever Send Money to People to get your Job, and Gumtree is The Mother of all Frauds, got frauded money last year. People Who Use Checkers & Shoprite to Get money to give you a Job are Fraudsters. No Matter how genuine it seems. Dont get Carried away, I knw how Frustrating it Is needing a Job so Badly. and Usually they Use Block Letters , arg these people. Apologies to those who have sent their Money, just pray God waters your seed to get you a Real Job.

    Hi guys, they are using swiss recruiters with the following banking details details now Mr H Klopper, Absa Bank, 632005, Savings, 9288854244. I see from previous reports that this person normally uses Solution worx, they are now using

  • Carina3 9 Dec 2014, 09:46 PM

    As a student, with no regular income, it was very tempting to pay the R200 and earn thousands while studying. I saw the ad on a website, telling me I should e-mail them for more info on how to apply. They sent me an e-mail with details about the "job". Just to be sure, I asked my boyfriend to check it out and make sure it is legitimate. He e-mailed them and asked for their company's registration number and they never replied. He also saw that the web address they provided was made using a free website creator. Why would a successful business use a free webdesigner? I'm so glad I did research first!!

  • Missb 26 Nov 2014, 02:05 PM

    A man by the name of Chris, Freelance Solutions, contacted me today, 26.11.2014, wanting R250 as a start up fee for manuals and tutorials to get me started. I asked him where his company was situated and he said that he only has a web presence, but not a website because itll be too much hassle for him to 'validate' his business all day long. CRIMINAL!

  • Nix4 7 Nov 2014, 02:24 PM

    Ahh Great ! I just paid R250.00 into his account. Chris Groenewald. Great job on my side for only finding out this site now

  • phumz 5 Nov 2014, 03:16 PM

    I almost fell for this scam today (05/11/2014) thank God for Google, had to check as it is suspicious to deposit money before starting a job. I must applaud them, they are convincing and tempting if you looking for a job

  • Natalie11 31 Oct 2014, 11:12 AM

    Thank God for this site! I would never have paid money into this guy's bank before receiving anything though. This company was called Freelance Solutions and the guy's name is Chris. (no surname, which i think is already dodgy) Email address is I asked him what the company/firm is called and he sent this to me within just a few seconds, so everything is just copy and pasted : It is Freelance Solutions and we are based in Johannesburg but everything is done electronically so you can be based anywhere. Due to the nature of the business, being electronically based, I cannot authenticate it. Once on board, you too will work independently for yourself and not for a company. What you pay for is purely the training manual that will explain to you in detail how the system works and to set yourself up. He sent me this : Proof of payment (R250) can be sent via email or faxed to 086 241 8060. Please just drop me an email when you have done so... The Bank details : First National Bank Freelance Solutions (GROE) 62374026708 Current/Cheque Account 250655 I hope someone can benefit from this info!

  • Elsie 9 Oct 2014, 01:08 PM

    I got so worried after requesting bank details to deposit the R200 fee for training manuals, then i was provided with an individual's bank account, that is when i realize that something is not right here, you are not being provided with a company's bank account (solutionworx) but an individuals. I just deleted the message

  • Independent 9 Oct 2014, 09:08 AM

    So all those asking for payments like around R200 for training materials must be fraud. They made it very tempting, not asking for much, just 200 to lure you to the promise of thousands per week.They should go teach psychology... Anyway, here is the details of another new advertised company in this scam circle, LOOKOUT for it: Email: Website:

  • Belina Green 4 Oct 2014, 01:19 AM

    Omg...I was also going to deposit the money. Thank God I decided to google the e-mail address ( ). Iyo shem these people are heartless. How can they scam unemployed people. Jesus will deal with them. I just sent them an emsil now and gave thrm a piece of my mind

  • Sylvana 26 Sep 2014, 10:06 AM

    Thank goodness I googled scams before I paid any monies over. You guys can report the banks to the OMBUD, as they are knowingly allowing this conduct unchecked and doing nothing about stopping these people from opening and transacting accounts or reporting the matter to Interpol SA. The bank in itself are entertaining the soliciting and racketeering of funds, money laundering. Report the bank in question if they have done nothing about your case or refunded you. Good luck

  • Zimkhitha 17 Sep 2014, 12:58 PM

    I saw this advert today on Jobspace and I emailed my CV to their email address they responded with in few minutes , and I just thought I must go to google and check if this company is existing.Because i thought it can be a scam why they want R200 and I thank you for alerting us about this scam,because we are unemployed we need jobs they are taking advantage of us.

  • Erica7 4 Sep 2014, 11:00 AM

    Just a heads up... These guys are now advertising on sites like jobcrawler and Their e-mail address is now If you go to Solutionworx's website they are not even in the business of giving jobs online. Just think it is very low to prowl on desperate unemployed people.

    Hello, just a heads up, there is another SCAM on in the form of another DATA capturing fiasco. Send them R200 and they will send you all the Training material to get you going. The follow up email is riddled with spelling mistakes. The email is a as there is no company email). Please be aware of this. I have posted the link for the add. Good luck to you in your job seeking and don't get SCAMMED.

  • Lizelle2 6 Aug 2014, 11:19 AM

    And they are at it again. Just emailed me something I haven't even applied for. Why can't FNB and the police just stop them? Is FNB so hungry for money that they will support these guys? No I wonder if I should email them back and say, you know what thanks but NO thanks!

  • Janine3 15 Jul 2014, 01:04 PM

    Thank goodness, I found this site the same guy Chris is trying to scam me. But things sounded suspect. I have not paid the money yet but very glad I did my research before time. Thank you. This is his response to my question as to what to company name is and the contact person: It is Part Time Admin as per our email address. Thank you I have received your application form. Once you have made payment (via Electronic transfer or direct deposit) and sent me proof of payment (via E-mail or fax) we will forward your completed profile to the training department. Once they have processed your application I will resume communication with you via E-mail and forward your training material. Regards Chris

Thank you guys I nearly lost my R250.00 and also i thank my inner side of having doubts about this.

  • Charles4 28 May 2014, 01:32 PM

    Unfortunately I just fell in their trap. I deposited the R250 into the acc. They use the e-mail of: I asked my bank (Nedbank) to stop this transaction, they said they will try, but it will cost me R350 do do, and no results are guaranteed. I also spoke to FNB, and all they are prepared to do is investigate after a case number from SAPS for fraud is obtained and then FNB will have to be subpoenad to freeze the account for investigation. In short, it seems that the bank(FNB) knows about this as it was reported to then previously,but are unwilling to do anything about it. This is such a sad state of affairs in the banking sector!!

  • anonymous73 7 May 2014, 03:42 PM

    be careful guy, I almost got tricked, thanks to this site and google. if you ever feel suspicious - google everything first - cell numbers - names - emails - acc numbers - everything - make sure - don't get caught

    They are still continuing their filthy "business" Company name is now Freelance Recruitment Enterprise ( FR Enterprise ) with Mr Maswanganye as the MD. They also now require a R500 training fee and are banking with Nedbank. How is this still going on after so long ?!

  • Zee516 21 Jan 2014, 11:40 AM

    Hello guys, These people have been doing this for quite a while it seems. I received these e-mails back in 2011 and I proceeded to pay R150 into Beatrix Groenewald's account (of Admin Angels) and never received any further communication after that. They are scamming innocent, desperate people!

  • Anonymous 1234 9 Jan 2014, 11:00 AM

    Hi Guys I sent a mail via gumtree as i found SolutionWorx ad, on work from home get paid R150 per application completed. Got a response for a guy "called" David Shawn, he provided me with these banking details and said i needed to pay R150 for training material. Beneficiary: GR Schoeman Beneficiary Bank: standard bank Branch Code: 051001 Account No: 243279450 I mail him back and asked him to send through company registration number and website address, he mail the website but no company registration number, the website is created on a free website creation platform therefore anyone can create a website. Please be were of this scam anyone can create a yahoo email or gmail account with no company registration number is definitely a scam. you looking for a job coz you don't have money how can they ask you for money.....think about it.

  • nika 26 Nov 2013, 04:28 PM

    I got a similar email from I told my boyfriend about it last night and him being an IT programmer, Told me to check it out first. so we emailed them back saying ' We have some concerns over the legitimacy of this opportunity. Do you perhaps have a website or letterhead that we can use to verify this?' They replied saying Due to the nature of the business, being electronically based, I cannot authenticate it. Once on board, you too will work independently for yourself and not for a company. blah blah blah... my boyfriend, showed my this site and these comments.. thank God, we did.. I am not losing R250 for nothing I'm sorry.

  • Fay3 26 Nov 2013, 09:33 AM

    Rogers have you had any form of response yet. I am sitting here clutching my last R200 thinking l may as well take the risk coz I must feed my babies. Please tell us all how it went as they said they respond in 12 hours max.

  • Username6876 21 Nov 2013, 11:17 AM

    These Data Entry Processor/Typist online work from home people is very clever. If they have a website make sure that the website is not created on Wozaonline or Wix. You can create your website for free here. Another thing to look out for, their wording when they reply is all exactly the same. This by itself is a give away.Careful for the Lollipop Hofman ad on the internet as well. They have a Nedbank account.

  • jonathan12 20 Nov 2013, 09:49 AM

    Me and my wife were just about to send the money but since my sister nearly got caught by a similar job email to work over seas that i as well Google'd I'm too skeptic but really if you need more proof just visit the web site it dosnt even exist it just takes you to some junk advertising.

  • Corrie5 19 Nov 2013, 09:16 AM

    Received the e-mail this morning after i went job hunting last night. If they can answer one simple question for me, i would register and do the work. @ Outsourced typing - Surely you have contracts with your client stating how payments should be made. The question. Through all this, why can you not take the payment of R250 from the first 2 successfull applications and then continue on paying for every application there after? By requesting money up front from unemployed people would spell out SCAM. i would love the oppertunity to do this work but i am not paying a company that is looking for staff. It should be the other way around. Answer this and i promise you i will apply (not pay).

  • Martin14 12 Nov 2013, 12:02 PM

  • Koketso 1 Nov 2013, 11:50 AM

    Good day every1 i see that all of these jobs they are not convincing i mean how can we trust you if we dont even meet face to face,no interview and no legitimate proofs if all of you are true why do you hide from emails rather than making an appointment and calling us for an interview?

  • Freelance Typing 30 Oct 2013, 02:10 PM

    You guys are all lazy as hell really. This opportunity is NOT a scam! It is an opportunity to work for yourself from home doing admin work for companies and if you are too lazy to work then stop bad mouthing it because you are accusing people of things that are not true and it is slander! Stop spending your days lying on the net and start working for a change. Blogging does not pay you a salary.

  • Inge2 24 Oct 2013, 10:50 AM

    The scammers have a new account number, 62374026708 -- still at FNB, and a new email address, They are now asking R250 for their 'services'. I was nearly scammed today by these bastards. Like one of the other people commented on here, I received the email from these people without having applied to something like this. You guys saved me from a scam, thanks all of you.

  • Cleo4 30 Sep 2013, 02:14 PM

    Hi Linda i need to talk to you plz email me @ Thank you

  • Tsepi 17 Sep 2013, 06:34 AM

    Wow this is unbelievable. I also receieved the same email from the same person giving me the same banking details. What upsets me is that, yes we have sites like this to make people aware and to report the crime but look, NOTHING has been done! The police haven't done a thing to arrest these people. FNB is HASN'T blocked their bank account. All we can do is complain until we are blue in the face. Whoever is running this site, why haven't you taken these complaints seriously enough to ensure that something is done about this matter? What other crimes are also being ignored??? And to gumtree, jobmail and all these other sites that have these job ads, why don't you have proper procedures to ensure companies advertised in your sites are legitamate? You are also at fault! Enough is enough! I am taking ALL these company names involved (FNB, Gumtree and any other company allowing this) to the media! Maybe when you appear on the news tonight and your company's reputation is at stake, you will decide to help and protect the rights of innocent people!

    Hi I just wanted to find out if anyone here has heard of National South African Recruiters and the emailer is named Corrie?? If so, is this also a scam.

  • Thandeka4 2 Sep 2013, 02:04 PM

    I received a similar e-mail today and just as I decided to google these people as the e-mails are faceless, without a name at the end of them all, I then googled using their Groenewald - Outsourced Admin as it appears on the banking details to be used and it turns out it's a scam. Thank heavens I always double check before spending even 5c. As for you Freelance Admin Services, if you are for real why use different company names and e-mail addresses and yet the account number doesn't change? I have also asked for your company name, registration and tax number and none of those have been given to me. I am truly grateful for such websites as this one as they assist us open our eyes to these scams.

  • Prathna 2 Sep 2013, 10:07 AM

    I just received a similar e-mail from outsourced admin, thank you guys so much, for this website, when i goggled the e-mail address this website came up. Don't know how many people these guys have scammed already. its amazing how they find time to do stuff like this. anyway thank you.

  • Cathy3 26 Aug 2013, 07:10 PM

    Also been scammed by these people!! Going to police sstation, FNB, east coast radio, social networking, gumtree and olx!!! Let's work together and cath these bad bad people!!!

  • Mel8 19 Aug 2013, 05:52 PM

    And this idiot has the cheak to reply to a nasty email I sent him telling him/her just where to go get for trying to scam me. Says how filthy my mouth is and how impressed employers would be with my bad language! Told them they deserve it and that I did not see any prove of a legitimate company, not a name, number, website, letterhead or company address. And the fact that NO company would make you pay a "fee" to start working for them. Absolute rubbish! I bet you all feel comfortable knowing this person has all your personal info from your CV.

  • Mel8 19 Aug 2013, 12:35 PM

    Got this very same email today in response to sending my cv to an ad today in the jobmail paper from!!! They advertise it as follows: Admin assistant/clerk, johannesburg, 10000p/m F/T Admin assistant, profesional, well groomed and previous admin experience, knowledge of all MS Office packages, non-smoker, sober habits. That was the advert in the jobmail on 8-14 august! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO PROTECT US JOBMAIL????? Thank god for my fiance alerting me is all i can say! Love you babe!!

  • I Will Not be Scammed 12 Aug 2013, 12:07 PM

    Thank you all for alerting me to this. I have been registered on legitimate job search sites (you know the one's I mean) and just yesterday decided to check out the on-line Job Mail, in response to a job alert I received from Simply Hired. Simply Hired is a legitimate web portal that scans the internet (all the sites such as Career Junction, Pnet and others) and then sends you jobs based on the job alert criteria you requested. I clicked onto the advertised position and was directed to Job Mail. Job Mail "verifies" ALL jobs but giving it a VERIFIED STAMP. I thought ok, no harm, let me apply for this "position". This morning I received TWO emails from My question is this: - How accurate is Job Mail's VERIFICATION process? How do they VERIFY that these are not scamsters? What check's and balances has Job Mail got in place to ensure this type of scam does not continue to be perpetuated? Oh, and don't get me started on Gumtree. Whether you are placing an ad looking for a job or merely responding to one, the chances are you will be confronted by charlatans and scam artists. Gumtree especially is a cesspool of vipers and filthy crooks ...

  • oct4v3 6 Aug 2013, 10:38 PM

    Hello guys. First time i bought the job mail newspapers yesterday and Found many jobs e.g admin, admin assistant, clerk blah blah. I have sent emails to all separately. The quickest reply for admin job, I got from this Outsourced Admin Lol, these bastards think they are the champ of getting free money direct sitting at their homes, without moving their asses. You are the real fool dude, be ALLAH'S azaab on you of whatever money you ate from the poor people for nothing. I am amazed that why Job Mail don't take any action against these kind of jobs as who is behind them. Thousands of people read job mail newspaper in need of job, and Perhaps sadly most of them are fraud/scams like Outsourced Admin Be aware of these scams guy, and please do a search on google on scamming email add or something to ensure you are not going to loose your money. Chao!

  • welie99 6 Aug 2013, 09:13 PM

    thanks Conrad, funny how these people can make you believe they are legit. Creating a website ect.. I hope people start being more aware from now on.

  • Conrad3 6 Aug 2013, 02:12 PM

    My update, Solutionworx is not legit. I have already placed a complaint to the bank and the fraud department. I have not paid their fees but was also told by the fraud department that ANY job that requires an upfront training fee is a scam.

  • welie99 2 Aug 2013, 05:49 PM

    Hi, i also received an email from 'outsource admin' but wont go any further as ive been reading the comments here. I would like to know what the latest out news is if these scammers have been caught? Also would like to know if Solutionworx is legit, they have a website and everything ( Thanks for all the info !

  • Username5469 29 Jul 2013, 04:30 PM

    @ALL RE: Solutionworx. Guys, its the easiest thing in the world to check a company's validity: Q: Do they ask you for ANY kind of "training/tuition/admin" fee? If yes = SCAM! There is not a single legitimate company that will ask a PROSPECTIVE employee to pay ANY kind of cash, regardless of what these scam artists would like you to believe. End of story. So, if Solutionworx is wanting you to pay them even R5 before dealing further, they're a scam.

  • Louise23 25 Jul 2013, 11:01 PM

    Hi guys,do u have info on solutionworx? They look legit but with all those sick frauds out there one can never be to sure.

  • Noma9 25 Jul 2013, 09:16 PM

    Thank u guys, I also was almost scammed

  • Tailor-made 25 Jul 2013, 02:30 PM

    Hi guys does any know of a company called solutionworx. They claim to provide data entry jobs trying to determine the validity of this offer

  • surprise 23 Jul 2013, 10:25 AM

    Hi all,I also received this email Funny part I ddnt apply for anything like that. So I knew something was wrong. Hope no one will fall for it.If there's some one out there who claims this thing is legit and it worked for him/her,let them come forward and give us proof.

  • Zinsh 18 Jul 2013, 03:33 PM

    Eish guys thank God i did some last minute research and found this website. Its a shame how these people play with our need for work, instead they just making us believe that there may never be an opportunity for work for us one day. We should all take this as a lesson to do thorough research b4 we commit ourselves to such scams

  • Reiko 18 Jul 2013, 01:56 PM

    They are advertising on Job mail currently as well. (Posted within the last week). You get an e-mail response from, stating everything mentioned above. Also they put a warning where they claim others are scamming on their advert, dont fall for this!

  • Conrad3 18 Jul 2013, 12:29 PM

    Hmm, an interesting predicament. I would actually like to note that there is now also a new 'outsourcing' admin job out there. Its called 'solutionsworx' I'm actually emailing them to see the banking details. I've done my research through here and was also contacted by outsourcedadmin. So I'm checking legitimacy. Check out their webpage I'll update when I find out the banking details.

  • Tebogo12 5 Jul 2013, 09:36 PM

    Got an email today from inquiries@outsourcedadmi same story only problem is when I responded to the email they gave me a deadline for depositing the money. I immediately knew something was up. Say NO to FRAUD!!! I hope no one falls victim to this R200 goes a long way.

  • Nolubabalo 4 Jul 2013, 04:43 PM

    Hi all, They are still very much operational. I am usually quite level-headed but desperate times and all...I was scammed yesterday. I will definately follow it up with the police and FNB. Stange how with all these complaints and action by some of you the BANK and the POLICE have done nothing as of yet! Has someone had a succesful resolution to this? I am going to social networks with Groenewald's bank details...

  • Boanita 1 Jul 2013, 02:00 PM

    Just recieved an e-mail from I replied asking them for office numbers so that I can speak to someone who can advise me more on this.... And I recieved an mail back stating that all correspondence work through email. Luckily I googled and found this page as I also were to go to the bank to deposit the money.

  • Joey 25 Jun 2013, 07:49 AM

    Oh lovely,deposited the money last night and only today I do research. Now I lost R200.00 and I still haven't got a damn job!! I hope these people rot in hell!!! urgh how after all that money they took from unemployed people do they sleep at night?? Its sick and disgusting.

  • chrisann 16 Jun 2013, 01:26 PM

    These idiots are still in business.i received an email from inquiries@outsourcedadmin just 2 days ago. How can they still b getting away with it. Do these people have no conscious whatsoever.thank god for this sight.

  • Jason2 12 Jun 2013, 09:47 AM

    Almost scammed - This really concerns me that people have reported this and yet FNB still bears the account to this scammer. She should be ommitted from having any account information whatsoever @ Linda and family you lowlife snakes you should get a real job rather than ripping poor people off thier hard earned or borrowed money. The Groenewald name will be remembered for years to come not for the good that you have done but for the bad, you guys have made it bad for your children and childrens children cos they will still bear the surname. Remember and always bear in mind that what goes around will come back ten times worse. You should all go F yourselfs with cactuses up the a hole
