    Hi - same story with LUCKY - booked and paid at Beau Soleil Bonnievale : Good Day I have realized my lady paid you the amount for my building materials, please deduct your invoice amount and credit the balance back Regards Lucky Kunene 0614344392 Notice how he says 'good day' and not use my name, even though we Dear Lucky or Dear Mr Kunene him : and 'my lady' : and no signature for a businessman at the bottom of his pages? And not hysterical about paying R70 thousand too much : i would be on the phone to the guesthouse in seconds!!! Just a layback : pl pay back (with no banking details). I mean honestly!!! I really hope he gets caught. Chantel

    Hi there - we are also one of the "lucky recipients" of Lucky's "generosity". He is trying the same scheme - we are a guesthouse in Hermanus. We googled and found this page - so thanks all for reporting or commenting. My question - has this been reported to the SAPS? Or will this be a futile exercise? Wonder if he is catching anyone? What irks me is that he has been doing this for suchh a long time now. Thanks Geoff

    Lucky is busy with me at the moment. He is expecting a deposit back today. I have forwarded all mails to SGT Henderson at the Sea Point police station and hope they can do something with this account. Not sure who else to contact for help.

  • Brian4 30 Jul 2015, 01:27 PM

    Lucky LKInvestmentscc contacted me yesterday, mobile he used is 061-43-44-392, says he is from Caledon and owns a guesthouse and wanted to purchase a heat pump for his pool valued at R50000.00 and would have the unit collected. This pathetic excuse of a human being will get his day. We are aware of his criminal acts and will not reply to him in anyway!

  • Quick Fit Cupboards CC 29 Jul 2015, 04:01 PM

    On 10 June 2015 we received a request for quote from LK Investments (Lucky Kunene). A quoted was prepared and sent to him. After which he followed the same pattern as with all other companies. Just wonder what the use is to report a crime, but still this man is on the loose. Today, 29 July, we received another request for quote from Lucky Kunene. Is there anybody that can do something about this corrupted man? He belongs behind bars!

  • Piet Kotze 22 Jul 2015, 01:11 PM

    Lucky Kunene contacted me for a quotation on a borehole pump which I forwarded to him. This morning I received a email with proof of payment R 79,900.00.the quotation value was R5500.00. Another scam in PE.

  • Chantel5 16 Jul 2015, 02:34 PM

    Lucky Kunene tried to buy a forklift from us yesterday with a fake EFT proof. We waited for the funds to show in the bank today, but nothing. Confirmed with the bank that the POP is not valid.

  • Jayde Casoojee 1 Jul 2015, 09:36 AM

    Lucky tried to scam us aswell. He requested a quotation for 2 pallet jacks, paid R89 650.00 into our account, sent us the proof of payment via email and requested that we contact him as soon as we receive it. When we called he said that his accounts lady paid the money into the wrong account as it was for his building material instead, and as soon as it reflects in our account, we should pay it back into his account... little did he know that we would do some research on him, since we could smell a rat. I phoned him for a vat number, physical address and land line number for "invoice purposes" he said he would send it to me. Which he never did. Eventually we phoned him and told him to scam someone else and he dropped the phone. Please be alert.

  • Bernhard Bekker 10 Jun 2015, 01:15 PM

    This guy tried the same with us just deposited a R58 800,00 check in Hout Bay. FNB :-) R58800.00 (cheq/s) deposited to check a/c..056679 @ Hout Bay ATM. Ref.3391. 10Jun 10:41 Then he sends a fraudulent EFT notice but typed like a child from a bank in EFT Branch in Sandton of payment so as if you are stupid enough not to see that it was a check paid into your account. People you must be awake out their these guys tries their luck with businesses all around the country.

  • Monique Hope 28 May 2015, 12:42 PM

    Lucky contacted us on the 25th of May, saying that his wife accidently paid us the amoount of R48 900.00 that she should have paid the contractors. And if we would please pay him back. We eventually refunded this man R45 000.00. And a day later the a cheque of R48 900.00 bounced. When we contacted the relevant banks the money was long gone. We phoned this idiot and he said his wife makes payments, he will discuss this with her and contact us back. This thief must be caught!!!

  • mosesguy 20 May 2015, 05:02 PM

    I received an EFT PoP from Lucky Kunene to the value of R40k... Wonder how many people will he catch before he is caught???!!! Delivery address used for his order with me is 14 Shoprite Business Park Cnr Eisleben and Landsdown Road Phillipi East 7785 Cape Town

  • Priscilla6 15 May 2015, 01:26 PM

    Hi, we were victims of Lucky Kunene he paid an amount of R66 247.68 into our bank account sent POP and we released the stock, we actually delivered to address in Newtown, he also incorrectly deposited R89 900.00 into our bank which he wanted a refund off, which we also paid back luckily his Capitec accounts are all frozen at the moment.We are opening a fraud case, if anyone else wants to help catch him please let me know would appreciate all the help we can get!

  • Janine 23 12 May 2015, 10:46 AM

    Lucky Kunene tried to scammed this morning. He sent through a request on our website for 7 slabs marble. He immediately made payment of R73,267.21. When we checked our bank account it showed that it was a cheque deposit which means that it will only be cleared in 7 days but he wanted to collect the goods as soon as possible but we were to clever for him. We googled the company and soon found out it was a scam. PLEASE BE CAREFUL.

  • Al2 12 May 2015, 09:23 AM

    This wanker is trying to scam us at the moment just got his payment any way of catching him out

  • Edmund Schoeman 5 May 2015, 03:38 PM

    Received an order from Lucky Kunene for 15 aluminium sliding doors. The order form showed his address in Mosselbay. I sent a quote, and he IMMEDIATELY accepted. Smelling a rat, I phoned him on 0614006622 and asked him about his business, where he was building, and his address. Suddenly his office was in Knysna, but the street he gave me does not exist, as I live in Knysna! He said he'll do full payment and come and collect the goods. I told him to come see me at my office, and he put the phone down. Be VERY carefull - they deposit a stolen cheque, and send you the proof of payment. They then try collect the goods before the cheque bounces. OR, they deposit to much money (also stolen cheque) and then phone you to pay back the difference. Watch out!!, Lucky Kunene is still operating his scam.

  • Bruce8 19 Apr 2015, 08:01 AM

  • Marelyn Tyler 17 Apr 2015, 12:45 PM

    This guy tried twice to book with us!I tried the number 0614006622 and a gent answered and said he was sitting in his home in Sandton. The bank picked up the cheque the first time round, but at the same time seem powerless/incapable of doing anything about it and shutting him down.

  • Roxanne12 15 Apr 2015, 02:56 PM

    A man by the name of Lucky Kunene from LK Investments cc in Phillipi East Cape Town is using this tel number 061 400 6622. He sent through a proof of payment and we stupidly gave him the stock. The money didn't show in our account and via my investigations found this website. His company doesn't exist, the street address he gave is just dirt and shacks on google maps street view. and he is refusing to take my calls. something MUST be done!

  • Albert4 3 Mar 2015, 12:41 PM

    He's at work trying to scam people again. Just sent a quote for R65,000 and he came back 4 minutes later saying OK, send invoice for payment. Naturally, I won't be doing any such thing. This guy needs to be nailed!

  • Andre Breytenbach 24 Feb 2015, 02:16 PM

    this Nelson dude tried the same with me yesterday. I send him a quotation, and his wife paid R 89000.00 into our companies account by fault, but we should only pay back the balance of R 80000.00, cause he will take the product. I knew this dude is up to no good, and goggled his details. Oops!!!

  • Adele19 24 Feb 2015, 12:19 PM

    He is requesting quotes again - just ignoring him

  • Ann3 18 Feb 2015, 11:32 AM

    Nelson & Sharon Gumede made a booking at The Hillside House Melville for 26-28 Feb. on the 11th Feb. He received a confirmation & Proforma to pay deposit. I got suspicious when I didn't receive the requested deposit. I am so glad I googled his Mobile No. & found all these fraudulent comments about this man. So glad I have not been scammed but maybe the visa department could be if he is not a South African, but using a SA name. I will definitely bookmark this site, as I have many scam bookings.

  • Adele19 17 Feb 2015, 05:51 PM

    Just received an order from him. Came upon this site - thanks for the info

  • Aubrey Williams 6 Feb 2015, 01:07 PM

    We were also nearly victims of this guy. Sent us proof of payment for R59,900 via EFT. Suspected something was wrong, and when we checked our bank account, it was a cheque deposit. He wants a full refund. Like that is going to happen!!! New number he is using : 0614006622

    Nelson Gumede has tried the same thing with us on the 23/01/2015. Said he was from Hillside trading t/a anix trading 381CC. He thinks he is going to send his courier to collect the goods. Do not trust this Person or anyone from that company. If such a company really exists

  • Neville Best 19 Jan 2015, 03:32 PM

    Hi, We are the latest victims of Nelson Gumede. Please let me know where I can contact you in order to get the copy of the drivers licence. Thanks Neville

  • Mark Struwig 5 Jan 2015, 08:33 AM

    I have a copy of a drivers licence for the driver who collects the goods if it will help
