I was one of the few individuals well about 12 people (could be more)who was recently a  victim of SCAM/FAKE EMPLOYMENT JOB OFFER made by the "so-called company" that goes by the name of SAFRA SA INVESTMENTS which incorporates another "so-called" company by the name of AGNES MARIE HOLDINGS. Those companies are ran by a man who calls himself Joseph Safra whom is married to Vusi Nongxa (Musician), safra gives out such offers of employment to people. The position that was on offer was of an Executive Assistant with a salary of R65000pm including benefits of car allowance, cellphone & petrol. As part of the contract I was requested to pay a 10% (R47000) car deposit to meet conditions of employment and for one to get the car allowance as part of the job offer. The cars that were part of the offer were a BMW 320 I or d, Audi TT, Range Rover Evoque & Mecedes Benz C200. As part of the contract I was supposed to be paid salary for my notice month before I could even start with work at SAFRA SA INVESTMENTS. After paying the deposit and after resigning from  my previous employer to start with work to what look like a great opportunity trouble started and it was promises after promises and the contract was never honored. The 10% deposit that I had paid was gone and I was left without a job. The company website is: www.safrasa.za.com please people be wise avoid being scammed like I was. Stay away from this company and this man to avoid trouble for yourself.

  • Bombardier 8 Jan 2017, 03:42 PM

    This guy claims to be the great Joseph Safra son whose family owns the Safra bank. This is the profile of the real Joseph Safra. Be very careful. I doubt whether this South African Joseph Safra is his real birth name.

  • Menzi 10 Sep 2015, 06:06 PM

  • Thandi 12 May 2014, 09:56 PM

    This guys is a total fraud. I was offered a job marketing high quality brand watches in south africa. He said we'll go for trianing in one of s.a top marketing companies, so I called the watch company n marketing company and they both knew nothing of it. Then started digging...Vusi was his friend on day of my interview he claimed vusi was busy with a music video in capetown. They use 3 companies all 3 I checked are under joseph n vusi's names. Their business registration with revenue r all under vusi. I got the physical address n googled it...it's luxury appartments in sandton but what caught my eye was that safra even stole their logo..the letter "S" design was exactly the same. Thank my Lord I didn't ignore the saying "if its too good to be true, then maybe it is." I didn't pay a cent and I didn't resign at my current job. I was waiting for their first month's "free" salary first.

  • Menzi 12 May 2014, 11:05 AM

    OMG!!! this is really unbelievable!! I have always thought my paranoia made me let a great opportunity slip through my fingers!!! I also did meet this man's acquaintance!! He messed me up emotionally I will never forget what he made me go through!! I ended up going under medication for this asshole!!! He nearly ruined my life!!! Thank God I managed to smell his ass early!! I hope he is caught and brought to book as soon as possible before he messes up more peoples lives!!! I still have our correspondences and if anyone needs them I am more than willing to help get this conman where he belongs BEHIND BARS!!!! I still remember vividly what happened!! I met him at Nicoleway Centre in Bryanston on the 4th Novemver 2012...!!

  • Adriaan8 13 Apr 2014, 08:18 PM

    This Guy called himself Dr, Joseph Andreas Safra(jr) is the biggest fraudster that operate in the Fourways ,Nicolway and Pretoria areas. His name he also Google with his Doctorate Degree. He is from the EASTERN CAPE and surely he did the same down there before he was caught he move to the Gauteng Province. Everything he talks about he carefully Google and make sure of his facts so if you Google you will see the same answers. The best thing for everyone in South Africa is to take this guy out of our society so no one will go through this fraudsters hands ever again. Send to your friends and families this guys face so they will recognizes him in an instance and let the authorities know his where a bouts as i know that there are fraudster cases open at the Government of serious crime against this guy. They will love to see him behind bars and right at the place where he belongs.Lets we all try to smoke him out where ever he hides as the people helping him to hide i think do not know him as nothing that came out of his mouth anyone can believe. Get my mail address with theses crime report place and i will send you all the detail i have from him

  • John68 3 Mar 2014, 04:40 PM

    Cannot believe a person can carry on with this kind of behaviour without getting hurt, but many others are hurt in the process!! Candy the last person who he employed as a EA is still waiting for her payment after 6 months of work and promises!!As many people as possible need to print as many facts about this person as possible, like tel numbers, places he meets and any office details - plus people he includes in these meeting!!Funny how no one gets to meet at his "rent an office" at design quarter, probably did not pay the bills like the phones that were cut off!

  • Candy3 25 Feb 2014, 09:15 AM

    Another thing that puzzled me was that he looked nothing like his "so called" father that "so called" siblings, I did my research after I met with him because really his offer seemed too good to be true. He said his offices are based in C.T but they want to open an office in Melrose I did my investigations and also enquired from the relevant people if there are offices that are to be leased to this particular company in the next 2 to 3month I was told no then I thought no let me let this go.

  • Candy3 25 Feb 2014, 09:09 AM

    Me and my friend almost fell for this trick and this dude is well informed and very convincing. He dresses up properly and well present himself and believe me if you dont have that sensitive gaurd feeling you would fall for his trick.The only thing that made me not to go for his offer was the fact that his employment contract looked a bit dubious with lots of stuff left out and it was a bit unusual than the employment contracts I've ever signed and ofcourse his package seemed too high for an EA role.I dont blame the people that fell for his trick this guy is really smooth and knows his story. There was a time when I felt like I missed out on an opportunity of a life time and I would do so much with such a monthly income but thank God I didn't get to a point of resigning and paying the deposit.

  • The Count 24 Feb 2014, 12:06 PM

    This man who calls himself Joseph Andreas Safra Jr. Is a slippery fraudster. He is not in anyway related to the Brazilian billionaire banker, Joseph Safra. In actual fact this fraudster is a coloured from Pietermaritzburg, Eastern Cape. If anyone needs a Photo of him I'd be happy to provide it.

  • John68 18 Feb 2014, 01:12 PM

    Where there is smoke there is fire, how can someone make so many high powered financial commitments in writing over and over and never deliver!! He should write a book on excuses why he never does what he promises!! I know of five companies that were very negatively impacted by extended commitments and promises that never materialised!! So called R100 million deals?? Then disappears into thin air - check his ID, passport and bank statement before wasting your time, would do you good to get proof of residence in his name??So you can find him when he has costs you money and wasted time!!I know someone who really wants to hurt him!!

  • Kenneth9 13 Feb 2014, 07:48 PM

    I guess rumours will always stay as rumours,I've known this man for a very long time...there will be those bad faces that wanna exeggerate,but I must say that I'm shocked if this happens to be and disappointed,let's not create our stories & come up with feebs...the investigation is in process,let us just not turn to be bad faces.

  • Username4155 12 Feb 2014, 07:10 PM

    He is a big fraudster and a conman. He has wrecked lot of lives and businesses alike. He is married to a musician by the name of Vusi Nova (Real name: Vusi Nongxa). Vusi is also one of the directors on this Joe Safra scamming companies. These two live on people's blood and tiers.
