Got a call from a Deon Mabuza wanting to make an appointment for his wife Amanda to see the doctor, he wanted to pay the consultation fee in advance. Got an EFT proof of payent the following day, for R68 500 from Mr. Mabuza's company (based in Bramley). Called him to ask what went wrong, said his bookkeeper made the transaction by mistake, can we refund him. Called my boss, who told me he had been called by the bank to say it's a fraudulent transaction. Cheque was deposited in Cape Town, automatically reversed. Upon Googling the received email address firstname.lastname@example.org, it is a huge scam by a guy who uses Ronnie Menzi as well. Same MO for every fraud attempt (overpayment/ mispayment/ etc, please refund). Capitec bank, under their company names. Be careful!
