    Thank you Joe! Yes, i did now identify the suspect and his location. He stole lots of money from many people.

  • Joe Frensch 19 Oct 2016, 08:30 AM

    Goeie vangs mnr Putter, die Fisch is aan diE laine.

  • Andre Putter 2 Oct 2016, 08:06 AM

    Die inligting is ongelukkig vertroulik totdat die verdagte aangekeer is. Maar skakel my gerus op 0844856448

  • Joe Frensch 1 Oct 2016, 10:22 AM

    Andre Putter ons is eenkeer gevang, en gaan nie goedsmoeds inligting aan jou stuur nie. Publiseer gerus die inligting, of kontakinligting waar ons jou kan verifieer, want mens weet nie of jy dalk die scammer is wat inligting probeer kry nie.

  • Andre Putter 15 Sep 2016, 02:31 PM

    After months i have discovered the real identity of the person behind this scam. I have positively identified him. If you lost money because of this scam or might have more evidence, please post your contact details and i will get in touch with you.

    Hi Uwe, I had a look at this generator ad on OLX with cell nr 073 005 2382, no doubt it is our scamster- that part about "leaving a message, the signal is low on the farm" was in his previous ads also (I think he is poor and fantasizes about having a farm). The "ready for use" clause was also in all his other ads. Not a well educated person--doesn't know the diff between "a piece" and "a peace"- always a sign of low intelligence.

  • Uwe 22 Jan 2015, 07:06 AM

    Good Morning all. I have searched for images of the advertised Generator and found exactly the same images he sent me with the lose safety plate and the page stuck to the control panel. He took these from the web site, He is definitely a fraud as this unit is advertised in dollars and is physically standing in Michigan USA.

    Hi. Please don't pay this guy anything. Im busy with the case and someone has just been robbed ofR35000.00 If all of you can maybe sent me all the info he sent you to Thank you

    Hi Libne Lombard, are you busy selling the generator in OLX, it seems to be the same as the one Rolf mentioned. A Ingersol Rand 63kva generator with 3 months warranty and free delivery.

  • Rolf Schumacher 30 Dec 2014, 03:53 PM

    Same guy same method. he uses Benjamin Libne Lombard, send me "his" id and a fake invoice for a generator. He is still advertising on junkmail. I smelled a rat and stopped the payment and laid charge at Wellington police today. I printed all your comments for the police to make their case.

    Ben Lombard (Benjamin Libne Lombard ID 7812235138089)defrauded me with R90 000 (see report above) and the case was reported to the Brooklyn police station (CAS140/12/2014 Const MS Magwele at 0123661700). More information on the conviction of this criminal, who will not stop until he is behind bars, will be essential to narrow his playfield.

    The SAPS are investigating more than one case against this doos already, and they are very thorough. However, their resources are limited and I have contracted a private investigating firm which already have a useful amount of info. I created a Facebook page for Boertjie Piet so that victims can have a central point of communication. Our chances of getting him will be better if we work together. You are welcome to message me on that page

    Hi, i was conned by the same person. He introduced himself as Ben Lombard and advertised a Tlb for R 180 000.00. He even sent his id, police clearance certificate, pictures and documents of the TLB as well as service history etc etc. It seemed perfectly valid and we verified the id number (which also cleared) before making the deposit transfer of R90 000. The person never answered his phone again. I'm opening a case now at SAPS.

  • Joe Frensch 24 Nov 2014, 07:56 PM

    Seems like he now has an "appy" by the name of Adolf. Adolf is not so fluent yet with the scamming business and if you suddenly ask him what is his name he gets confused. Adolf is using the nr 079 745 2109 however you will be emailed the same tlb photos etc as Pieter above.

  • Joe Frensch 24 Nov 2014, 07:32 PM

    This must be the dumbest criminal in a long time. He uses the names Pieter Pieterse, Karl Rohlandt, Dewald and Ben. He uses the numbers 0762219808, 0720567773 and 0606436283. He likes to talk about himself and calls himself Boertjie Piet when he speaks with you. He advertises a tlb, a Ford tractor and an icecream machine from time to time. He promises delivery and only wants a deposit (very convincing and good mannered) which will be refunded if you are not happy with the goods. He also targets people advertising in the "wanted" category, claiming he's got that precise stuff... He uses ABSA FNB and Std Bank accounts, and according to SAPS the monies are withdrawn in the Westbury/ Newclare areas in JHB and could be a person of colour. His Afrikaans is excellent. He uses the following emailadresses: and If you have been conned by Boertjie Piet please leave the details here, as it will make his playing field smaller.
