Bank Account Fraud

WOW!! Thought I'd Google and just found all this info. Mr Lee Wilson (African man??) ordered a lot of products from my company and made payment this morning. The invoice was for R2000, yet he paid R89890.00 (yes, just short of R1000000.00) into my account this morning. I got a bank sms stating it was a cheque deposit, yet the a@#hole sent me and EFT 'proof' of payment. Amateur! Luckily I'm sharp :) On inspecting the Standard Bank PDF's properties I found that the PDF Producer was a software program (doPDF) used to create PDF's and not the usual banking software. Also upon inspecting the PDF I could clearly see some 'design errors'. Not everything was lined up correctly, the logo was too high, the footer of the PDF didn't contain all the usual information, etc. Anyway, he phoned to say that a big mistake was made on payment. His secretary 'apparantly' paid over the container company's invoice amount into my account. Could I please EFT that amount directly to the container company. As I knew what was going on I told him that I recorded all our conversations and sent all the details, IP address, etc to Standard Bank and the SAPS Crimes Unit. I know, I watch to many crime movies :) Paid off! I told Mr Wilson (such an idiot to think that he could get away with having a European name) that I knew what he was up to and that he can go # himself. People, don't be so gullable - investigate! If something smells fishy, it usually is! Lee Wilson - - 0614749697 - 105 Old Paarl Road, Kraaifontein (as if anyone is at this address).

    Just had Lee Wilson call and try to buy fuel worth approximately R90000. He is using the company name MMT Construction, and is phoning off an 8ta (Telkom) cellphone. A quick google search of his number led me straight to this page, confirming my suspicions. Bank statement reflected a cheque deposit, but he sent a sketchy looking eft proof. Luckily we have been caught this way before, and have since become wise to these scams. These fraudsters need to be put behind bars.

    Lee Wilson has clearly not learned from his mistakes. He ordered two toolboxes for R8000 and wanted them delivered to Klapmuts Centre, 105 Talent Street. I also got an EFT proof of payment but on my statement it reflects as a cheque deposit. Luckily we have a strict policy that goods are only delivered once funds have cleared
