Holiday Fraud (Internet Scam) Pieter Viljoen

Pieter Viljoen aka pietcaz (who has a criminal record forfraud and been jailed) put an add on the internet advertising holiday accommodationin Hubberdene, he asked for a 50% deposit to secure the booking. In good faithwe paid R5600 into an account number which later we found out was his Mothers.
He called us at 2am (we were half way to Durbanand told us there was an electrical fire and we cannot stay there)
We had to find ourselves alternate accommodation.
Since the 25h December we have been trying to get our deposit back and no luckwe have also done an investigation and have found that Pieter Viljoen hasscammed many people and stole their money with all different false advertisingall over the internet.
We have also details of his wife, and Mother who say he has been doing this foryears and has even been to Jail. He apparently travels from Johannesburgto Durban(where his wife and 2 children stay) His Mother lives in Middelburg but nobodyhas his contact details. I have these contact numbers for him 0718809934 and0827671852
Below is from another lady whom he scammed:

    A deWet - how do I contact you?

  • Cas 18 Aug 2016, 12:43 PM

    I sent a number of emails to Dept of Justice and then the NPA -;; - asking how someone who gets arrested by the Hawks for having 3 outstanding warrants (2 with broken bail) gets released 2 days after being transferred from KZN to JHB? In the end I was told I have no right to ask - F*CKING SERIOUSLY???????? Only a child of Satan can get that right.

    Oh the sneaky bastard, so glad to have found this site. Can confirm what A.dwet said. The scammer has taken us for R27000 for a holiday/timeshare scam at a lovely resort at such a great price we thought. Everything was so professional and looked so legit. A real charming man (if you ever managed to get hold of him on a phone as he always makes the contact once he has your number) who turned out to be a professional criminal. Initially obtained my contact details from my cousin via a personal fb message telling him we are okd school friends who lost contact. Had all my cousins personal details which he obtained from his account together with many stories of how they have holidayed together for years at a place where my cousin often go to as well as that they annually go to the J&B Met races in Durbs. He knew so much about my cousin by only snooping on his facebook (only found this out later unfortunately) that is was impossible to not think he is a personal friend. Even told stories about my aunt whereabouts (all found on cousins profile) and other mates of his like he knew them for years. Gosh cant believe I got caught. Advice.... Delete delete delete and block block block block. Dont even 2nd guess & try to snoop on him. Before you know it he will be on your case and you will wonder how on hell he mananged that. Dont let his red indian spur profile pic (last one I noticed before blocking him) with his pretty lady and actress friends get the better of you. Carte blanche needs to blow his top & expose him. Please ppl we need to make a join effort to get this crap out there. Poor ppl get ribbed of & this in bullsh!t!! A.dewet please send me a pm with your contact details, need to provide my full story for your reference as i know of at least 4 other ppl who was caught but this scum & 2 very close friends/family members also. Still cant believe I was caught so easily, the last person I though would ever fall for this!!! Bummer guess I wont see the beach and a holiday for the next few years saving up

    Hi Everyone, we have also been investigating Pieter Viljoen for a while & has become aware of various new methods he uses to contact potential victims. Most of these seems to now be via social media eg. Facebook, instagram, twitter ect. He uses all sorts of fake or funny pictures ect. His own contact list usually includes random friends, often ladies only & many times a few local celebrities to make it more trustworthy. However what he seems to do is contact either a potential victim directy either via friend requests or direct message. Once accepted he will try to get your contact details by saying he has a matter to discuss which is generally of a personal nature. This is all in an attempt to get your details in irder to sell his scams to you. We have also found that he gains extra personal info from profikes in order to know as much about his victims as possible. In other instances he would go through your facebook history & friends, look for events you have attende in the past year ir two ect. With this he will make contact with friend & relatives & message or friend request them asking for your contact details as he has lost it since he met you at this specific event, party or whatever he may find online. The best is by getting the communication going with your other friend it a "reliable" source of getting other potensial victims by using your supposed friendship with him as bait to lure the others in. By having contact with your friends he can keep the ball rolling by moving onto that persons friends eventually and in that way expands his victims list. Very simple actually yet very shrude. If however you ask him for his number as you will rather contact him he will provide you with some numbers together with instructions to only call him later as he is busy or some other excuse but that is all personal ect. The numbers provided either doesnt doesnt excist or in some cases might be link to the "nigerian scam" type number which will either charge an huge amount as soon as it rings or will corrupt the mobile device you phone from with a virus ect.
    Eitherway the man is clever and dangerous. We suggest any contact made to delete and block him immediately aswell as inform your contact of him ad the attempts he is trying to make in the event that he contacts them. Believe this will safe you a lot of problems later to rectify everything.
    Please do contact us should you be aware of this or if you have been a victim in order for us to further our investigation.

    We are a charity and he has scammed us as well. We laid charges at the police station but the cops told us they cannot assist us as this is a civil matter not a criminal matter.
