Fuliotic Cylinders - Pickon Cylinders - FRAUD

I received a telephone call from a lady called Jabulile Sibiya, her fake e-mail address is jabulilesibiya@transport-gov.org.za. She claimed that she is from the Department of transport and she got my details from their database. She told me about an RFQ that the department has out for Fuliotic Cylinders and they place orders for these things twice a month. She needs me to submit a quote. She sent me an "official" RFQ document with a coat of arms and details of what is required. At the time I did not suspect a thing. I didn't even pay careful attention to the e-mail address.

I googled Fuliotic Cylinders and only ONE company was listed:- www.bluetrack.co.za I contacted this company and spoke to a lady called Nicole. I then requested a quote for these Fuliotic Cyclinder and the quote that returned was for R 121 000. 

To cut a long story short, I placed the order but only paid R110 000. I got confirmation from Nicole that the order was "delivered" the following day. Even Jabulile Sibiya contacted me to say everything was delivered. I awaited payment and only when the payment was being delayed did I start to panic. Only now do I go back and check the e-mail address and discovered that its false. I checked the all domains using

    Ndaba, You made an appointment to see me and never pitched. You told me that you also lost money in this scam. It now seems not to be true. You also claim to know these criminals. Why then not report them to the police? And if you are real, you would have checked with Psira and saw that i am registered. I suspect strongly that you have some connection to these crooks. That is why you know who they are. And yes, i am a Cell C client like one million+ other South Africans. Why do you not publish your details?

  • ndaba 7 Sep 2015, 08:37 AM

    This Andre Putter is one of them he's also using cell c claiming to be a Private Investigator

    Good day all, I listened to an interview on POWER FM some weeks back. This gentleman was hit R300k by the very same people and they got away with his money. There was a follow up interview just last week or the week before and his case has been escalated to the commercial crimes unit and to the Hawks. This is purely because of the amount that was taken. I am trying to get the contact details of this gentleman so that maybe we could collaborate information and assist him and ourselves to have this issue resolved. How can we assist ourselves in the absence of the hawk? I have given full information of these people on this post: Web addresses Telephone numbers Account numbers used Please share the details that were used on you guys and they can be handed in at the police station under the same docket. When a section 205 is compiled it will be done with all this information. The investigating office handling your case can also be given the same information from all of us to investigate. This will have police officers from different areas investigating the same case and gathering as much info as possible. How does that help us? Well with all this information at hand there might be some common elements that could possibly be discovered. It is worth a try.

Please are losing big time here man. Please find it in your heart to assist our people generously.

  • Kabelo7 11 Aug 2015, 10:47 AM

    Hi all am i glad to read this page. First it was the department of human settlement and today, yes today its luthandozungu@transport-gov.org.za requesting prinkolic what what. Luckily no money was taken from me cause I am broke at the moment also I was suspicious as to why they requesting from me (kzn) over so many suppliers in Jo'burg and when I called back the office was very quiet. I think the people who publish the gazzet should alert everyone.

  • Sihle3 5 Aug 2015, 12:08 PM

    Thank you guys for this post, almost fell for it. I got a call from Linda Sibeko claiming to be calling from the dept of transport. I suspected that there was something fishy when i heard a baby crying in the background. she sent me the rfq and i called one of my suppliers to ask what is a prinkolic cylinder...he had never heard of it. then i googled it and i found that theres only one company in S.A (infact in the whole world) with such a cylinder (the company is called mosupatsela engineering). On my google search was also a scam alert ..and it all made sense. Thanks for the Post, and i wish that other potential victims will stumble across this it before falling prey to this scam.
