This "Peter Peterson" asked for a quote on my stock items, once I gave him the quote he asked for the banking details, he then paid in R97 800.00 for an invoice of only R6520.50, he then called claiming his wife had made a mistake and had paid me the amount that was meant to go to his container payment! Asked if we could please subtract our amount out of the R97 800.00 and transfer the balance back to him! Obviously I knew this was a scam, so I played along with him getting him all excited and then telling him to go to hell!!! He claims he is from Rainbow Transport t/a Terex Africa 178 Fleming Road IsandoPo box 415 Code 1600 Vat 4600109500

    On Wednesday a guy named Peter Contacted me from mobile no 0817197221 claiming that he was from Fairview Guest House in Hermanus and urgently needed furniture for the guest House by Friday (Yesterday) After many emails ( texts and phone calls we agreed on the items he wanted and pricing thereof. I forwarded him my Invoice and received a Capitec Bank Proof of payment yesterday forwarded from his wife using email Shortly after receiving the proof of payment he phoned to arrange that his couriers collect the furniture from us. I checked our bank and the money (R28350) reflected as deposited, but not available. So we refused to release the goods until our bank cleared his deposit and the money was available. He put the phone down and since then we have not been able to get hold of him. His deposit still reflects in our account, but we discovered that he made a cheque deposit at a Nedbank branch and not eft from Capitec. Luckily our business have strict rules for not releasing goods unless money is reflecting and available in our account....

    We were too clever for him, but it concerns me that he has been doing this since December 2014 (If I look at the reports on this website) but so far nobody have been able to stop him. is registered domain and must be owned by someone
    He obviously deposit cheques in a bank... which normally have security cameras
    He operates mainly in the Western Cape
    These are just a few clues I can think of.... but yet nobody have been able to stop him......

    JJ Construction is at it again in Cape Town, guy Leon Jacobs phoned and wanted to buy garden tool sets for an urgent job and deposited the amount and send a driver to collect, after he collected i suddenly got a sms that money was out of the account again, really don't know how he did it and phoning the bank nobody can give me an explanation. He uses the following number 0813682655 or 0604534293. They hired a bakkie from this person 081 097 5988. He said he delivered at Delft spar and they collected there so no further prove of what happened to the goods so my year started just wonderful. Be careful they are in the cape town area noe and only after trying to trace them i saw this details.Will be opening a case.

    They tried to scam me today with today using same story using the phone number 060 453 4293.

  • Kate6 13 Jul 2015, 04:20 PM

    Mr and Mrs Peterson have just tried to scam us too! Luckily I noticed something was fishy and I have come across this thread in a Google search. Just like all the previous stories, Mr Peterson called us claiming he was from J J Construction and needs a quote. I sent the quote to them and the wife, Mrs L Peterson requested a our banking details so they can deposit the money as they were going to come and collect the order from us. The amounted quoted was for R420.00, she sent me an ABSA proof of payment for the amount of R58,540.16!! I am about to tell them to go to hell! I am just so grateful I saw this post after I had a suspicion that proof of payment had been tampered with. I hope nobody else gets caught out by these B......s!

    Mr Petersen made appointments for 10 employees to be med examined. he paid R49000 into my bank account. He phoned afterwards to explain his wife made a mistake and I must pay the balance of the quotation amount back into his bank account. Fortunately I realized it was a scam.

  • Mr Nissen 13 May 2015, 02:52 PM

    Peter Peterson phoned and SMS'd from number 0817456429 also looking for quote on accommodation. Thanks to everyone reporting, I will not waste my time and expose my business to these scamsters!

  • John H 13 May 2015, 11:48 AM

    I had a request from this scamster requesting training for 10 people whom he would send from Jo'burg to Cape Town for the training. I should have smelt a rat then. But when I got an ABSA proof of deposit for R96,800.00 I really smelt something bad! He then called me to say that his wife had made an error with the payment, whereupon I told him that I knew what he was and what he was up to. At which point the line went dead! Take care people, these guys are serious crooks, but they're not stupid.

    Mr Peter Peterson came into our offices for a quotation on roof tiles. He requested the bank details and paid R98600 for a quote of R5426. He then called claiming his wife had accidentally paid in the wrong amount. I suspected a fraud case, because first of all the email that he send the proof of payment from, was junkmail. The email address is and the phone number that he uses is 0817456429. Secondly, I saw that the proof of payment was tampered with, different fonts. I immediately called my bank manager to investigate. She confirmed that it is a fraud case.

    Peter Peterson phoned me a few minutes ago for acoommodation for him and his wife at our guesthouse. Thanks to your information I will not fall into his trap! Thank you!!!

  • Lizel4 5 May 2015, 04:08 PM

    Peter is still at it! Phoned me to make an appointment for his daughter, wife then "accidentally" deposits R49800 in my bank account and he wants it back. He even dared to tell me that it will cost me R500 in bank fees to get the deposit reversed. He was not to impressed when I told him there is no way that I am paying anything back until the check has cleared. He uses the email account.

  • Shaun29 5 May 2015, 11:47 AM

    He is still at it to date. I had the same encounter as Leon. Please becareful when it comes to transferring large amounts of money.... If its too good to be true than it generally is....

  • Leon28 23 Apr 2015, 01:29 PM

    Hi! Peter contacted my company on 22.04.2015 looking for a quotation for 6 x airconditioning units. That was supposed to be delivered to Airport Industria in Cape Town. After checking him out we came across this site. Thank you for reporting him. (We took his information to the police as well)

  • Desmond Randall 22 Apr 2015, 01:02 PM

    Was called by Peter today, 061 425 3038, He wanted 6 x samsung air conditioners, sent him a quote and as he had a webmail address i googled it, saw he was a scamster and mailed him back, he replied with YES YES, idiot.

  • Andre44 22 Apr 2015, 11:52 AM

    A certain 'Peter' needed an urgent price on (supply only) of 6 x Airconditioning units for an installation supposed to take place the very next day ... funny how a person working at a company called ''JJ Construction'' has a address ... needless to say I didn't bother calling him back on his landline (which I specifically asked for) which is registered to an adult learning centre situated in Delft!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mario6 18 Mar 2015, 04:00 PM

    Hi Pete Peterson came to Durban north vet clinic and asked for a quote to spay his two bull dogs and then claimed to deposit R 95 000.00. He said he was from the bluff. He then asked to have the deposit reversed. His prufe of payment came from "nenbank" We are anxiously waiting for his funds to reflect in our account for a great Christmas !!!! Be aware.
