    Hi there,

    I run a business in Cape Town CBD by the name of This Way Out. It's an outdoor sporting goods store.

    Stanley Twala(goes by another name) tried to rip us off of R89k worth of bags however we have now caught him!

    Please help us process a successful conviction by adding your case numbers here or on email:

    He is at it again. We received an order from FUSION TRADING 301CC for Thermal Till Rolls. Name is Fortune Petersen, address 9 New Eisleben Rd, Philippi. I phoned him for clarity on the order, and it was definitely not a coloured person that spoke to me, it was a Nigerian. I was actually surprised that he answered the cell phone. Going to see how far I can push this one.

  • Streblo 20 Nov 2016, 02:26 PM

    I received an order today for a generator from someone calling himself FORTUNE PETERSEN from a company called FUSION TRADING 301cc using some of the same contact details, VAT number etc. as listed in below reports. This time his company is listed as

    P.O Box 9031,
    VAT No. 4770128108
    Ph: +27 (0)81 5785833
    Fax: +27 (0)86 7672197

    Anyone who knows anything about buying a 100KVA generator will know you don't just order one via email.

    I hope the details listed here help prevent someone being taken by this piece of crap.

    A Miha Kosak claiming to be "staff" of VTB Private Bank emailed a proposition regarding an intestate investment by a Mr Felix Albert Steenberg of over GBP 10million, which mirrors a similar approach from Herbert Moos two years ago. Only mail is via gmail which is not traceable. Hasn't asked for money yet but be aware. VTB Bank is shown on Google as being in Russia

    Morning all,

    Stanley Thwala from PVR Services 081 578 5833, has just attempted to purchase 3 laptops to the value of R67 000, this guy must be well organised, as the payment shows in our account as a check payment, waiting to clear, the bank even sends a legit sms and email for the payment, this person called me today to confirm payment, when I stated that the money has not cleared he simply hung up on me, so

    He's latest info:

    Same guy tried with us today. Ordered 2 cameras for R35k. Seems like he opened a Nedbank account, made payment & then closed the account, resulting in a bounced cheque.

    He is going by the name Stanley Thwala from PVR Services.
    Same phone number 081 578 5833.
    Got a call from DHL asking if the goods can be collected so that they can request payment from him, so seems like he's using couriers for delivery.

  • User77ZA 23 May 2016, 08:22 AM

    He's at it again. Tried to order 6 laptops from my company this morning. Using the following details.

    Disclaimer - the person's identity and the address he is using are probably all fake. And the cellphone is probably an unRICA'd phone as well.

    David Thwala
    VAT No. 4540199355
    Cellphone 081 5785833

    Police told us these guys use runners to collect the orders at the address they give - so the person collecting is paid a few Rands to collect and drop of the goods ordered, they know nothing about what is going down.

    Note - It is already a crime to attempt to defraud any company - the company (victim of such a crime) does not have to have lost money - just the attempt to defraud is enough to charge the culprit.

    Just got a email from Stanley Thwala ordering goods. Received a notice of payment from FNB he then phoned me to confirm delivery and I told him i ran his vat number through the system and he comes up as a fraud, he then put the phone down. Be careful guys...

  • JULES88116 15 Oct 2015, 03:59 PM

    We were contacted this morning by Stanley Thwala from PHP Trading CC, who ordered R50k worth of goods. We received proof of payment within half an hour. Everything seemed to good to be true. Thank goodness for sites like this we did not release anything.

  • Faries 9 Sep 2015, 04:22 PM

    The company's contact details are as follows:

    GLOBAL FINANCIAL SERVICES 201, Moore Street Cnr Valley Road, Cape Town, RSA 7300. Tel: +27 021 813 9704, +27 078 113 9684 Fax: 086 516 7219

  • Faries 9 Sep 2015, 01:48 PM

    My husband was scamed by a company called Global Finance Services. They asked for a 1st payment of R1835 as installmemt before the loan amount was even transferred into his account, then a transfer amount of R 2250, followed by R 1550 for insurance which my husband transferred. Now they are requesting a 14% vat before they transfer the amount to his account. I got involved and have decided to go the legal route.
    Their names are as follows: Derek Dave, Julian Lucas and Tsabalala, phone numbers 0781139684 and 012 8139704.


  • Seanhampson 9 Sep 2015, 10:11 AM

    I have just had the pleasure of dealing with Stanley. This morning after he sent through what he thought was a perfect proof of payment I went online and found this article. Thankfully I never release any stock until payment has cleared in my account and 24000 is a lot of money. He phoned me and I hope this makes everyone's day but I told him that that standard bank has flagged him and the police notified by them as he has a record. He freaked out and put the phone down. Small win thanks to this site. Let's help spread the word and get him caught!!

  • Fraudster 3 Sep 2015, 02:07 PM

    I just received a email for a quotation from a Stanley Thwala using a company name PHP Trading CC with a company VAT number 4540199355 which is listed as a VAT number which is listed as fraud. He uses the cell number 061 419 8153 and is based at No 1 Teguka Business Park, Phillipi Business Park Mitchells Plain. Email address: Be careful and be aware.

  • Abdurragmaan 8 Jan 2015, 10:14 AM

    just received an e-mail for quote on chairs from this guy Uegene - 021 691 6423 is my contact if you have further details / a case against / or just want to catch him and rough him up

  • Lindy0606 8 Jul 2014, 08:53 AM

    Hi, we also fell prey to this man, calling himself Michael Booi. He purchased goods to the value of R18855.60 and sent us a Std bank proof of payment, which we didn't think of checking. Everything seemed legit, but wasn't. His details are as follows: & address: 25 kleinbos street, Strand 7140 Tel: 061-4094148 We have contacted the police and opened a case, but no joy so far.

  • Otto 5 Jun 2014, 11:07 AM

    This guy ordered diesel to the value of R34625 and unfortunately got away. They deposited a cheque into our account and it showed as available also faxed a once off payment confirmation. All looked ligit but was a scam. He introduced himself as Michael but always over the phone Cell number 073 988 4307 Please try and get him to your office plus alert police as soon as he makes contact.

  • Shane9 15 Apr 2014, 08:34 PM

    I run a small on line business , was approached by the guy with the same name ordered goods to the value of R20000.00 sent proof of payment as well...wanted to collect before payment was cleared and I realised it was a scam. I have the no. he gave me which he is still answering..calls himself Tropical Catering Supplies now..its a scam.

  • Debbie19 8 Apr 2014, 03:20 PM

    We were contacted by Jayfort Construction to purchase a large amount of diesel. As procedure we phoned Standard bank to confirm payment reference. It doesnt exist. We then googled the company and found this site! Thank you so much for posting this and alerting us and confirming our suspicions

  • Maria4 20 Feb 2014, 01:51 PM

    These guys have tried several times to purchase from us too , under same name Tropical Projects , Thank God we havent fallen for it , can the police not do something about this ?

  • Username281 12 Feb 2014, 11:13 AM

    I think these are the same people that have just made contact with our company to purchase goods to the value of R190000. I have asked for the bank proof of payment into our account with the relevant reference numbers, but this information has not been forthcoming yet. If this is a scam, thank goodness we have not fallen prey to it. Is there anything that can be done about this to save other people from making a mistake.

  • Kate Cameron 31 Jan 2014, 11:00 AM

    We are dealing with Uegene at the moment. The police are coming in now. Please contact me on 076 680 6264 or as soon as possible if you have any information regarding this scam.

  • Username7144 23 Jan 2014, 12:42 PM

    They guys are now operating under the name of TROPICAL PROJECTS CC. I received a hire request for tablecloths and napkins to the value of R20000. After checking his address I found this article. He sent me a photo of his ID, with a fake ID number. TROPICAL PROJECTS CC P.O Box 7785 PHILIPPI 7785 VAT No. 4540199355 Ph: 27 (0) 61 218 3615 Fax: 27 (0)86 566 5161 Email ID number: 7201026279082 Name Isaacs Spencer

  • Deborah Donnelly 24 Dec 2013, 10:38 PM

    Can anyone who knows anything about these Jayfort Construction crowd please contact me on 0828746425 or so we can please compare notes. Thank you.

  • Deborah Donnelly 18 Dec 2013, 03:36 PM

    We have been defrauded by this exact same crowd for a LOT of tablecloths and runners and serviettes. Mostly black velvet cloths, black and white protea runners, black and white hand painted runners and white and maroon serviettes. The hiring of R20 000 was 'paid' with a STD EFT POP which REALLY looks 100% real, and of course, they have run away with our stock valued at R61 000...please keep me posted if you find them. We are going to try our best to catch them.

  • Rachelle Vorster 12 Dec 2013, 09:04 AM

    We were approached by the same guy yesterday and unfortunately also fell victim to his scam. What can be done about this, can they trace the cell number as he is still answering it.
