SCAM !!!

Peter Peterson of JJ Construction phoned our rooms yesterday to make an appointment for a colleague. Requested bank details as he wanted to pay for consult upfront. We then got bizarre email stating 'attached proof of payment for building materials and contact my husband Peter #0782832138'. Signed by Mrs L Peterson. Proof of payment of EFT from FNB for R96 800.00. I phoned him back to advise his mistake and he acted all surprised. He called back to ask that we deduct the amount of the consult and refund him the balance. At this point, Mr Pryce Lewis realised it was a scam. Dr then received an sms this morning advising of a CHEQUE deposit of the same amount into his bank account. Peter phoned me constantly requesting the refund and I advised he would hear from us once Dr had discussed this with his bankers. Investec were well aware of this man and his scams and directed us to this site. Dr then phoned Peter personally and guess what ..... Peter had absolutely no idea what Dr was talking about and put the phone down! Be wary of Peter Peterson.

    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.
