Tony Mendis Scam

Mr Tony Mendis representing a company Brainwaves in Vereeniging.Ordered a R45 000 .00 Generator for his company. Fortunately the item is still at our premises as he had a "declined EFT Cheque" payment.Apparently this "customer" goes around ordering large expensive items for his company, makes a EFT that shows available in your account, colects the items with two suspicious drivers, and then stops the payment somehow even if it is a EFT. Be vigilant PLEASE

    Mr Toni mendis requested i invoice him for a 20kva diesel generator , sent through proof of payment but after two days payment did not clear, third day the amount showed up in our account and we contacted the bank to verify, he had desposited a cheque into our account, cheque is linked to a closed account so it will bounce after 14 days. Luckily we have not released the generator and have opened a case of fraud with the police but he will not personally collect.
