heynsdive39@gmail.com this guy Heyns schoemann using this email address just scamed me out of a pearl necklace worth R15000.00 and R1500.00 supposedly for his friend who needs help. Sent me a copy of his ID and everything. I want him arrested and I want my necklace and money back. He hounds you everything. The numbers he gave are 0629019903 and 0633125259. He fakes emails, proof of payments everything. He also gives the address and name for David living at 12a Luna Court, Casaurina Street, Kempton Park, Gauteng,1619.

Be aware of RMC Motors in Howick. They charge storage fees for long-term projects by getting uninformed customers to sign an indemnity form (with small-print). They then refuses to release the motor vehicle or monies already paid. They have conned me out of R16 000.00 with this method even though my motor vehicle has not been repaired and the job is incomplete. This is blatant daylight robbery. It will now take me approximately 2 years following the legal route to recoup my financial losses. STAY AWAY FROM RMC MOTORS!

Guys be careful when leaving gentlemens clubs such as Teazers etc. U will be stopped by police doing 'routine' checks. Most of the time the driver has had a few drinks and then the police threatens arrest. U will be asked to draw cash at atm if u do not have enough. The days of 'colddrinks and lunch money' are over. They are charging 'lawyer' rates. Lol :) actually it is not funny. This is real. They wait outside clubs and pubs in order to cash in. People get scared of the consequences and pay up. Rather designate a sober licenced driver to accompany u and your friends on a night out. That way u avoid unwanted trouble and our roads are safe. Guys also do not want to be stopped with their wives or girlfriends in the car. Would u want to leave your mrs alone with a cop while u are being wrongfully arrested ? I don't think so. Be safe. Be wise. Be careful. Go out in groups. And be SOBER. U will be able to handle these situations better with a sober mind.

Be careful of leaving your phone, or anything for that matter, in plain sight while waiting in the car if you are parked somewhere. My dad was waiting for my mom, parked with his window open and his cellphone between the front seats when someone tapped on the back left window. He turned around to see who it was and someone else put their arm through his window, and grabbed his phone, right in front of him. Worst part, he still to this day suspects the newspaper guy that he bought newspapers from for more than three years.

Trevor Naidoo (the owner of a Kirby dealership in Wyebank, New Germany called HOREB MARKETING T/A ADDISON TRADING T/A LONDON MARKETING) does not pay the people he employs to sell the Kirby machines their commission! I worked for his company in January 2009. I sold two Kirby machines (which were both paid for in full on 26 Jan 2009). I should have received my commission for the sales shortly thereafter. Today, 14 September 2009, I am still fighting with Mr Naidoo to pay me the money he owes me (a total of R3000). He has made every excuse under the sun and I doubt he ever intended to pay me. But fair is fair. I worked for him, I sold his product and he owes me my commission. This is now a case of theft. Beware of this fraudster!

I have just been trapped by A1 Assist towing services at the scene of a traumatic motor car accident. They pretended to have AVIS car rental customer care on the line and the crook on the other end of the line even offered a "avis unique authorisation reference number". This number was to correspond with a number that she would give the service provider and I should carefully check BEFORE I release the vehicle. The sweet "AVIS" representative even gave advice as to how careful "AVIS" is to avoid the con-artists to do their customers in. The long and short is that they were not from AVIS, AVIS finally got hold of their vehicle and I am liable for the outrageous tow and storage fee of over R7000! The A1 Assist Crooks operate in the Ontdekkers area, West Rand, Westdene, Mellville and so on. Hopefully I will succeed with a Consumer Activist Group's assistance to at least warn others before they are also trapped. If only one other person is assisted, then this time I took will be worth while. TIP: AVIS and other big rental companies DO not issue reference numbers, they have their own towing services/providers and ONLY their customer care line will contract a service provider directly. YOU do not, or you are liable and also robbed by criminals like these that keep getting away with doing shady business.

People, please beware, Jan Josef Jacobs, (ID 730827 5031 086) and Ansunell Jacobs,(730727 1048 085) are highly skilled fraudsters. I advise you not to sell or rent anything to them unless you get the cash upfront. A case for fraud and money theft are open against them. They are currently in Hermanus with all the money, salaries(end of January) of the personell, rent of school building(about 2 months), electricity (about 2 months) of their "Bethel Independant School" in Centurion, Pretoria. They left the children and personell in serious debt. They pretend to be good christian people, therefore, watch out!

http://www.bidorbuy.co.za/jsp/userprofile/UserProfile.jsp?User_UserId=393976 The above link is for a seller on bidorbuy: online_digital. Every item sold by him is stolen goods. Do yourselves a favour and check with the buyers by obtaining their details through bidorbuy and then verifying serial numbers with the manufacturers and you will find that they are all stolen. The seller is MR MUHAMMED AQEEL KADER, 7 Helena Road, Northdale, Pietermaritzburg. He is the kingpin who heads off the syndicate that deals in stolen merchandise and sell it off in the same channels for unjust enrichment. He is linked to other current users on bidorbuy who currently still sell stolen goods on the bidorbuy website. The other users are: pleinredts, FTM_COMPUTERS & DREAMSELLER. You will find that all their items sold are blacklisted equipment and this is howcome they are able to sell below manufactuers costs and bidorbuy stand by and do absolutely nothing about this while innocent buyers are scammed into purchasing stolen merchandise with no knowledge of it whatsover. If CRIME STOP can't do something about this hereof, then I guess the crime wouldn't stop and there's no point to your website.

PENSIONERS please be careful of people approaching you in the supermarket and telling you that you have won a large amount of money. These people get you to go with them and convince you that you need to draw all your funds out of your bank to receive the winnings. This has just happened to my husband's 91 year old grandmother at the Shoprite in Arcon Park, Vereeniging. These criminals got away with R40000 - that was all she had!

Be on the look out for Guys pretending to sell things very cheaply - and ask you to deposit money into their account - they typically use an ATM card to withdraw the funds, this way you cant try and catch them when withdrawing at bank, when their account gets closed they just open another.

The article Mr Machiel Adriaan Goosen response. I find it very intimidating. Being the auditor of Mr.Goosen's companies and knowing Mr. Goosen now for over 10 years I must say I never had to visit Mr. Goosen in jail, nor even being aware of any criminal actions. I find this very surprising if it is noted that Mr. Goosen is a registered diamond trader with the South AFrican Diamond Board and one of the requirements is that such a person WILL NOT HAVE ANY CRIMINAL RECORDS. Further more is it true that Mr. Goosen has a 10 year American VISUM which of course was issued subject to their checkings. Mr. Gary Woolley, this article with false declarations were done in very bad taste. Not even to make mention about the enormous amount of money you owed Mr Goosen for saving your grandmother's house because of your swindlings and the information you stole from Mr Goosen's office. You should actually have been listed in this article!!!!!

Dear All, PROTECT OUR CHILDREN Hi, most of you know me as Chantel Thompson. Well I have a story to tell that needs to get out to the public for the sake of all our children. This morning 07.08.07 my domestic worker came to me and told me that A BLACK WOMEN gave her a call towards the end of July 2007 and offered her R20000.00 for one of my children. My maid at first did not tell me because she thought that the call was a joke and ignored it. We recently moved to a new house about two weeks ago. She then realized that the call was not a joke after she received a second call this past weekend Saturday 04.08.07 and the same BLACK WOMEN had asked her where we have moved to, because she came to the old house last week and we no longer lived there!!! This black women knew exactly what time myself and my husband went to work, when my children come home from school, who looks after them and what my maids cell number was, she knew what time myself and my husband get home and what our address was!!! This black women is apparently working for a WHITE MAN who is paying money for the children. As a mother of two this really upsets me to know that my children are not even safe in their own homes. I have called the police for assistance, but until a document is open there is not much they can do!!! (And a document does not go very far) The worst part is that about 5 or 6 months ago there was an email going around about people offering the domestic workers money for the children they look after and I honestly did not think that this would happen to me!!! I am very afraid for my children, so please send this to as many people as possible so that we can PROTECT OUR CHILDREN. You are welcome to call me if you think this email is a joke!!!!

Hello***** is an extortion scamI wrote to **********.com today regarding their site when I noticed a couple of disturbing trends. I emailed them twice and they deleted my comments, but so that all South Africans are well informed on this scam disguised as a consumer forum, here is the posts they deleted - The summary is easy:Please keep in mind that NOT all companies deserve what some people write on their forum, and that it is a public forum. The problem is that companies must pay to defend any accusation - even if it is false; ********* makes money from all of these irrespective of the truth! ********** allows anyone to make accusations, but the accused, innocent or not, must then pay ********** to clear their name. The problem is that it hurts innocent businesses while ********** turns a blind eye.I can even put bad posts about my competitor, someone I never dealt with, someone I simply want to annoy,and I will be safe in the knowledge that ********* will not remove or post any statement until they pay, now that is extortion.This also brings to the forefront that ********** hardly has any bad comments about themsleves on their own forum - they simply delete them.Here is the 1st post:What the user sees: The aim of this site is .. to increase service levels of our suppliers. Any *constructive* criticism about any supplier is welcome. Compliments are gratefully accepted. ..it is designed as a highly sophisticated and economical way for Companies Who Respond to deliver the service that they profess to provide.What the user do not see or realise:Any user may place a comment about any company on the site, true or false as it may be, and as destructive as it may be, it is still included. BUT the company may not defend themsleves (see other user

Nadat ek u webtuiste weer bestudeer het sowel as die kommentaar van u leserstal sowel as u reaksie daarop, wou ek nie, maar moet ek se, dat ek weer besef dat nie u lesers of uself besef waaroor dit waarlik gaan nie, en nie gerat is vir wat Suid-Afrika binnekort inwag nie. Ek is bevrees dat my Afrikanervolk nog glad nie verstaan waaroor die grond en ander kwessies gaan nie! Kom ons begin vinnig by die woord oorlog: vir die gemiddelde Suid-Afrikaner is oorlog ‘n groot woord om kwyt te raak te midde van al hierdie vredespraatjies wat elke dag aangehoor moet word, maar daar moet onthou word dat die meeste oorloë deur alle eeue heen in die wêreld juis oor grondgebied gegaan het. Dan moet mense begin besef dat die Blankes in Suid-Afrika eers deur ‘n lang breinspoelingsproses van skuldigmaking gegaan het om te sorg dat hulle nie weerstand sou bied nie. Dít het in sy doel geslaag toe apartheid en die sogenaamde “apartheidsmisdadigers” tydens die eerste fase van revolusie in Suid-Afrika gekriminaliseer is. Nou, in die tweede fase van revolusie, moét die Blanke ontwapen word - van sy vuurwapens én sy grond. Daarná moet die Blanke finaal uit Suid-Afrika verwyder word. En dit moet ook goed verstaan word dat daar nie beplan word om slegs die landbougrond van die boer te roof nie. Ook die eiendom waarop elke stedeling woon, sowel as ál sy ander eiendomsbates, is by hierdie roofaksie ingesluit. En dan moet ook onthou word dat die uiteensetting van persentasies vir grondontneming soos in AgriBEE, nié die uiteindelike mikpunt van die staat is nie. Dit is maar slegs die aanloop tot finale onteiening, en derhalwe tot etniese suiwering, of te wel ras-uitwissing, of te wel Blanke ras-uitwissing! En nou mag ons vra: Wat staan die Blankes in Suid-Afrika nou te doen? Daar het reeds ‘n onberekenbare hoeveelheid kosbare blanke bloed in hierdie land gevloei onder die sogenaamde “demócracy”, maar steeds is die meerderheid Blankes in hierdie Godgegewe land nie bereid om met dieselfde aggressie as sy vyand terug te veg nie. En wanneer jy die vyand nie beveg nie, het jy reeds willoos oorgegee. Dán is daar ook geen toekoms vir ons nageslag nie. En willose oorgawe grens aan verraad wat as 'n uitdruklike sonde voor God gereken word. Die Goddelike opdrag aan elke Blanke in hierdie land is om sy Godgegewe erfenis te beskerm sonder 'n gees van vreesagtigheid. As ons nie hierdie opdrag gehoorsaam nie, verdien ons om ons land te verloor! Die antwoord le daarin dat ons moet weer inspirasie moet vind uit die verset, vreesloosheid, paraatheid en eenheid soos ons helde en heldinne in ons roemryke verlede dit uitgeleef het. Ná die anneksasie van die Republiek Natal in 1843, het Andries Pretorius in die Natalse Volksraad in Pietermaritzburg met advokaat Henry Cloete probeer onderhandel oor die vryheid van Natal. Terwyl hierdie onderhandelinge gedraal het, het ‘n vrouemag onder leiding van Sussana, die vrou van die evangelis, Erasmus Smit, daar ingestap met hierdie woorde: “As verset tevergeefs sal wees, sal ons liewer kaalvoet oor die Drakensberg terugstap! Ons eis ons vryheid . . . of ons dood!” Só sterk het hierdie vroue daaroor gevoel om nie verkneg te staan in hul eie vaderland nie, dat hulle bereid was om eerder te sterf!

I recently fell for the long distance purchase by "Electronic transfer"...not even two months later, they tried again. These thieves operate in Johannesburg, under the names of "Patrick" and "Dr Peterson", both black males. They see your advert in your local capeads/junkmail. Then sms you to buy your camera,cellphone,laptop. The money is deposited by "stolen Cheque", which unfortunately your bank shows as available. You then post off the item, only to be surprised a week later, that the money is debited from your account, as it was a bogus deposit. Thank you my bank! Don't sell anything to anyone out of your town, or better yet, let them "deposit" the money arrange a date when the item will be delivered, and let the police know, if they will help!and they can wait for the thief to collect and nail the mutha. Be very careful. Don't release your goods until, you have made double sure the cash is in your account.

I have realized that what man made is also man destroyed meaning what can be built can also be destroyed.Most of the people commit crime for survival while others commit crime because of ambition.They still and kill for survival.Most still because of poor background.Take note "they steal from the richer because the richer are stingy and have no love for the poor".We as people of this Land lets learn to love one another in order to built one nation.No Love no better life and crime will still continue but If we all can love one another then will see a better nation.Note "Where there is no Love and just life GOD is not there" and "Where there is love and peace GOD is there".

Hi all, be aware of a Guy Called Johan, he advertises Computer Components on Junk mail, I was fortunate not to have fallen into his trap. He advertised a Philips LCD Monitor for sale. I mailed him and asked him if he could deliver the item to me so that I could test and check the serial number. To my surprise the guy was very nervous while I called Philips. Philips SA told me that the serial number was not reported stolen. But because of the way the guy behaved I decided not to take the LCD Monitor. A day later I got a call from Philips with a new report; that indeed the LCD Monitor was stolen. The E-mail Address he uses is sbester_01@hotmail.com and he's always online.

Re: Mr Malone

This information is worth reading. By understanding how the VISA & MasterCard Telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself. Those con artists get more creative every day. My husband was called on Wednesday from "VISA", and I was called on Thursday from "MasterCard". The scam works like this: Person calling says, "This is , and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by bank. Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing company based in Arizona?" When you say "No", the caller continues with, "Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?" You say "yes". The caller continues... "I will be starting a Fraud investigation. If you have any questions, you should call the 1-800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800-VISA) and ask for Security. You will need to refer to this Control #" The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. "Do you need me to read it again?" Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works. The caller then says, "I need to verify that you are in possession of your card". He'll ask you to "turn your card over and look for some numbers. There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are your card number, the next 3 are the 'Security Numbers' that verify you are in possession of the card. These are the numbers you use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. Please read me the 3 numbers". After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say,"That is correct. I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?" After you say "No", the caller then Thanks you and states, "Don't hesitate to call back if you do", and hangs up. You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the card number. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA Security Department told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charged on our card. Long story short, we made a real fraud report and closed the VISA card, and they are reissuing us a new number. What the scammers wants is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card. Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or Master card direct. The real VISA told us that they will never ask for anything on the card as they already know the information since they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time you get your statement, you'll see charges for purchases you didn't make, and by then it's almost too late and/or harder to actually file a fraud report. What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a call from a "Jason Richardson of MasterCard" with a word-for-word repeat of the VISA scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I hung up! We filed a police report, as instructed by VISA. The police said they are taking several of these reports daily. They also urged us to tell everybody we know that this scam is happening. Please pass this on to all your friends. By informing each other, we protect each other.

BEWARE OF TOWING SERVICES AND CALL CENTRES: Beware of most towing services "attacking" you on an accident scene. They will misuse your condition you are in as you may be shocked and traumatised after the collision. They will tell you that your insurance covers your towing bill and that you will have no costs. BULL!!!!!!! Not all insurance companies pay the same amount for towing bills. Regent and Hollard only cover you for up to R750,00 inclusive of vat. Auto & General, First for woman, Dial direct and Budget, do not cover you if you do not work through the Emergency No given by them. So we go on. The majority of towing services will try to "bully" your insurance by charging exhorbitant release charges, for example R3500,00 upwards! This is just to remove your vehicle from an accident to their yard or repair centre. Should they tow the same vehicle which is mechanically broken, then your costs may vary between approximately R350,00 to R500,00. These costs for accident and breakdowns is within a radius of 20 km. Now ask yourself the question, why do they charge less for a broken down vehicle than an accident damaged vehicle? They have to be more careful with a broken down vehicle than an accident damaged vehicle. They say that an accident damaged vehicle is an insurance risk!!!! This is ABSURD. That is not all! Once your vehicle has been towed to a repair centre and it is repaired, some towers also receive a kickback ranging between 5% and 15% on the repair costs. Can you now understand why there are so many tow trucks on every corner? Should you be a client of the AA, also be weiry when involved in an accident. READ YOUR MEMBER MANUAL!!!!!!!!! The AA does NOT cover you for accident costs should you be involved in a collision unless you are an AA-PLUS CLIENT. The AA charges R 1881,00 inclusive of vat. Here is the scenario: you are insured through Regent and you phone the AA to remove your vehicle. The AA contractor removes your vehicle and the contractor charges R 1881,00 to your insurance. Your insurance only pays R 750,00 so you are left to pay the differnce. Obviously you "think" you don't pay the differnce, but it is added to your excess in some cases. Let us stamp out corruption and insist that the tow operator put in on black and white what they intend charging you. Make sure that the towing industry is not becoming "rich" at the hands of the road user. Should you require any advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.

TO MY BROTHER WHO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE POLICE FORUM WHO TAKE THE WEEKS TO CONFIRM THE DECEASED TO BE PUBLISHED AFTER AVERY LONG TIME TO THE PUBLIC.(NOTE THIS)PEOPLES ARE JUST TRAVELLED WITHOUT THE IDENTITY DOCUMENTS OR ANYTHING THAT CAN IDENTIFY HIM OR HER IN CASE OF EMEGENCY OR ACCIDENT.IS HARD TO THE GOVERNMENT TO FIND THE FAMILY,FRIEND OR RELATIVE OF THE DECEASED.SO TAKE THIS TO THE D.N.A TEST SO THAT IT WILL IDENTIFIED THE DECEASED NAMES IDENTITY NUMBERS OR PASSPORT NUMBERS AND ADDRESS.SO THEN THEY PUBLISH HIS OR HER NAME.IS NOT AN EASY WORK WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD.
thabiwise@highveldmail.co.za

There is one thing that I don't understand with the police forum,when the police find a deceased they will look for his/her relative for weeks before they publish saying UNKNOWN BODY.Why don't they take the deceased finger prints and put them in a computer and the computer will bring the details of the deceased.Case closed

Hi All,Just received another Lottery win.It is fun playing games with these people. I seem to be a good candidate for a number of different international lotters. This is Strange as I keep telling the scamsters to wake up and come to reality.How can anyone win a lotter without purchasing a Ticket? Seems the Nigerians or whoever are quite simple.Play along and mess them around with dodgy infomation. They will have to give up sooner or later when everybody B------- them into thinking they are receiving funds for their scam. Reverse phsycology. Regards Peter

Corruption is happening in Jane Furse Local Municipality in Sekhukhuneland(Limpopo province). The Local major there by the name on Mafiri is a millionaire though tenders that he awards to his accomplices who give him bribes. he is very richer that business men there. before he became a mayor, he was peniless...he was only owning a bicycle now he owns 3 mercedes benzes and a list of other luxury cars. These mercs were bought cash in one day. He owns a 3 storey mansion and he is busy building a three storey supermarket. He uses council money to organize parties costing well over a million rands. There has no accountant and auditor to look out for his books. he does as he pleases with tax payers money. He threatens people with death when they complain. These are is one of the poorest in the country. the only form of employment is public service. People there are very poor and service delivery is pathetic.

Cellphone theft is now getting higher and higher.I think there's only few thing to be follows to avoid this. 1.Set you phone silence to vibration or turn it off if you are in the publick place like open street,taxi rank,Publick toilet. 2.If you hear your cellphone ringing or vibrate,before answering,make sure there's no suspicious guys arroud you,or leave it for your aswering voice mail. 3.Dont give your cellphone to the strangers that they need to use it for the emegency. 4.Don't leave your cellphone in the car where everybody can see it even if your car is locked. 5.Cellphones with the radios is one of the most targeted by the thifs,your hands free kids might give them more attraction to them while listening to the radio or while you still on line with someone,Most of peoples they dont remove their H.FREE kids even if they are not on call,is the one of the most attractive to them.

I placed my cellphone ad in the Junk Mail. A guy with the name of "Tshepo" (apparently) phoned me and told me that he has got the cash but because of the distance between me and him we could not arrange for a handover, so he deposited the money into my bank account which appeared on my statement as well as on my cellphone. We then arranged to meet each other half way in order to hand over the phone where we met "David" (apparently), one of his colleagues/employee who arrived BY FOOT at the meeting spot. After handing the phone to "David", he asked to use my cellphone to confirm with "Tshepo" that he received the phone. Two days later we discovered on my bank statement that the amount that was credited to my account became debited. I lost both the R4000.00 as well as the phone. BE WARNED!!!!! P.S. "Tshepo's" cellphone number at the time of the deal was 083 898 8596 which unavailable at the moment.

NEVER ACCEPT ANY SO-CALLED BANK GUARANTEED CHEQUES, UNLESS IT IS MADE OUT IN THE BANK AT THE TELLER WITH A STAMP OF APPROVAL OF THE BANK. OTHERWISE, YOU WILL DEFINITELY BE CONNED INTO A COUNTERFEIT CHEQUE. MOST CRIMINALS KNOW PEOPLE IN GENERAL ACCEPT BANK GUARANTEED CHEQUES EASILY. I HAVE JUST LOST A MAJOR CASE AGAINST A BANK, DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY DIDN’T FOLLOW UP ACCORDING TO PROTOCOL WHETHER THE CHEQUE WE ASKED THEM TO MAKE SURE WAS OKAY OR NOT. FIVE DAYS LATER IT TURNED OUT TO BE FRAUDULENT. IT COST ME OVER R60 000 IN THE END, PLUS LOSING MY GOODS TO CROOKS. YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED UNLESS IT CAN BE PROVED THAT THE CHEQUE WAS MADE OUT BY BANK STAFF.

laptops owners.. they trace you from your office to your residence.. as soon as you leave your office, there will be someone watching you.. to make sure you have what they need... he will call someone outside the building to inform him how you have put on and which exit you are using.. they are the ones to follow u until they gaet a chance to rob you.. Hint: Do not use laptop carrybag...they notice it very quickly make enough spare keys for your office and file the number off for in case you loose one. people tend to steel the key number ang go and duplicate it..if not buy another one.. always keep it locked on your desk or lock it away in a safe.. when opening your office, close again until it is safe to open for a client they normally arrive in the early hours or just befor you close...

When opting to use a Security Service Provider make sure they are registered with PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority) for Guarding and with SAIDSA (The South African Intruder Detection Services Association). This is basically the only way to ensure you receive an above average service.

The South African Banks are responsible for a lot of Fraud involving phoney deposit slips. If they processed cash and internet deposits immediately instead of keeping it for as long as possible to gain interest, people would be able to confirm a deposit into their account. Keep yer money at homel, theres a chance you will be robbed, keep it in the bank and they will make sure of it.

If you want your steel security door to be of any use, make the gaps between it and the frame as small as possible. They put a pick or crawbar in the gap and force it open! Believe me, if I tell you, if it wasn't for the gaps on my door, they wouldn't have gotten in. There is a easy fix. Weld a flat bar of at least 4mm thick and 30-40mm wide(depending on the tubing used) on to the door so that when it closes, it covers the gap completely!!! Do not let it hang over too far, it must just cover the gap with two to three millimeters. Weld it on the inside as well. In most cases you can cover the swiveling side's gap as well. This time there will be virtually no overhang. If the overhang is too long the door won't open properly!!! Check it out, it works. Remember that if you do this, the chances of them getting the door open quietly is getting less. At least it will be more difficult.

Be careful of foreign Indian nationals selling beautiful pictures. (They even offer on installments.)

FLY-BY-NIGHTS, Panelbeaters/Motor Vehicle Workshops. Their names are: ARTHUR C. ROBERTS & wife LORAINE. They claim that they are married, but we aren't sure about that. ARTHUR C ROBERTS is originally from MOZAMBIQUE, he's bold & Greek. LORAINE has long black hair, very long false nails, very dark make-up & quite slim. They come across as very healthy & "body-conscious". Be aware of these people, as they are very good con-artists. They buy workshops / panelbeaters, fire old staff & hire new staff not paying either. They hire marketing-executives to bring in bussiness, & soon after that they don't go to the office anymore, & the company goes bankrupt. Their company will have a name like "L.A Technique" or "Chariot Race". (L.A stands for Loraine & Arthur) These people are wanted by many, they probably owe millions of rands to banks, staff, formar company owners, suppliers etc. Apparently The Mozambique Bank is also looking for ARTHUR ROBERTS. The last company they bought over was based in Wynberg Johannesburg named "L.A Technique". They bought it over from "Lee-son Motors". They fired all old staff, hired 4 marketing ladies & a workshop manager. They also had a couple of technitians as well. None of the staff got their salaries for months! And still didn't (almost a year later). They just dissappeared, the company went bankrupt & there was nothing no-one could do about it. Do not leave your job to work for these people, you will have to use your own money for company expenses such as petrol etc, being told that you would be reimbursed, and will never get a penny from them. They go by false identity numbers, addresses & reg numbers. Yet they do have a passion for BMW's, so keep an eye out for that. They were last seen in the North of Johannesburg (Sandton/Fourways)& last spoke of opening workshops in Midrand, Nelspruit & Pretoria. These people really exist, they are con artists & very good at it!!

A very good recommandation to avoid being catch in front of your house, when parking: NEVER enter your car into your driveway or garage in showing your back. This is the best way to be "surprised" by strangers or hijackers. ALWAYS enter your car in reverse and stop your engine when your gate is closed. If every single driver was following this simple instruction, you would be amazed to see how hijacks in parking cars would decrease. Hoping it will help you.

There is a company called Universal Capital Systems who claim to sell software that lets you monitor the JSE actively. They ask for your credit card details to link your account to the JSE. You also sign a debit order form for a R 250 monthly subscription. Before you know it they drained your credit card. The bank does not want to reverse the transaction because they have a signed doc. But the software doesnt even work. It will take you months to get your money back and in my case I only got back about half of it. Be very aware of these scammers!!!

Forex Fraud. Beware of a company operating in the Durban area under the name of FOREX DIRECT CC. They Operate from the 16th floor of the Embassy building in Smith Street Durban. The Members of the CC namely Mr Henk van ZYL and Mr Justin Hitchinson Are con artists of note. They take in investors funds for offshore or local investments and then use the funds to finance their grand lifestyle. This has been going on for a long time and it seems the police, Scorpions, Financial Services board are either unable, or un willing to do anything to stop these criminals. They brazenly continue to use ligitimate insurance brokers to solicit the investments and then pocket the money. These people are also well known in the Amanzimtoti,South Coast area.So should you be approached by these people or this company Do not invest your money with them.They have stolen large amounts from investors in various parts of the country.

A tip for people with motorised gates (also a reason to get a motorised gate) If you have a garage directly on the road, or a driveway where the gate is recessed, do not pull up to your gate before opening it. Wait in the road until it is fully open, then drive in and close it behind you immediately. If you drive into your driveway, the only way back out again is backwards, and this is easily blocked with another car. So rather wait until your way is clear.

Microsoft Software Scam In the past week I have almost been a victim of this scam twice. They target small computer businesses. They want to order either MS Office or MS Windows XP and about 20 copies. The are usually from outside SA (Malawi, Zambia etc). The are not too interested in the price you quote just how quickly they can get the goods (as they are leaving SA the next day). They then try any method possible to convince you they have paid so you can supply the goods (false deposit slips, stolen cheques, etc). Be VERY wary of this, any bulk orders of MS packages, make sure the money is CLEARED before you supply. If you have had similar experiences please email me at sgate@iafrica.com. I want to get some evidence against these guys.

Be carefull for people working in the Centurion area. Claiming they sponsor internationally and local projects for businesses and evangelization, or can get you the finances for business development. They push you for large amounts of money e.g. R40 000,00 or more just to tell you after three months that nothing of this "chain" or project worked out. Everytime they have another story and then tells you they give the money to this person, and then that one and no-one seems to know where the money went to. Look out for person with the names of E.

At Cash Converters we try very hard not to buy stolen property, some of us go as far as to call laptop companies such as Compact and Dell whom are very helpful before we purchase a laptop( I go one step further and check this site out on a weekly basis). Other laptop companies such as Mecer, Auwa,Digitech, etc don't keep much of a record.Bearing in mind that there are people out there whom dress smartly and fit the profile of the goods that they are selling and we buy and later find out that he/her is selling stolen goods. There are also times that laptop companies are not advised that a laptop was stolen and only get advised weeks later. Therefore should you guys out there have an item stolen please advise as many people as possible so that we can do our homework and not buy these goods.You may also call our head office on 011-312-0701 or visit our web site on www.cashconverters.co.za and let us know what goods where stolen.Unfortunately if you do find your stolen goods at a Cash Converter, which has happened to my store, kindly speak to someone in charge as we have all documentation concerning the matter so that we can assist you.We can also check if your goods come in if you advise us and if it does we'll call you and the police immediately to come to our store.We have in the passed helped many people get there goods back before we bought them by stalling the seller whom suspects something and leaves the store, or we have told them that these goods are stolen and that we are calling the SAP.Unfortunately most of my cases of stolen goods have been family members or co workers whom have sold these goods(sad), but it is true. We are also thinking about getting a data base of stolen goods with serial numbers so that as we enter these numbers into our system it would show as stolen, but this is an idea and a hell of a big job. Should you have any queries concerning goods that you belive that might be yours go and talk to the Manager/Owner of the store and he will assist you, if he does not call Richard Mukheiber (Managing Director)(011-312-0107) and he'll get things done.

I have had numerous attempts to be conned, as well as a Nokia 7650 stolen from me. I advertised to sell a phone via several newspapers. I received calls with different offers from someone who I believe is the same person. He wanted to deposit money, fax the deposit slip and collect the phone. I obviously turned this down. The next offer (bigger carrot) was to swap the phone for a better, more expensive phone form a `Dr Lucas Banda`. I agreed to meet him, but was told that he would send his guard to collect me. On arriving at the premises with the `guard`, I was told that he would have to call and inform the Dr to put his dogs away. As I was standing next to him, I was not concerned, until he stepped through a gate into a yard where the so called dogs were. There were also about ten men sitting inside. Had I entered the property, I would have lost more than a 7650. He walked through the property and left through the back gate. The same `Dr Banda` is currently trying to scam a friend out of his Nokia 6510. Unfortunately the police don`t seem to interested in doing anything about this.

Beware of ETTIENE JOOSTE, operating in the Gauteng area - this smooth-talking, well-dressed individual requests heavily overpriced invoices for computer and office equipment from retailers to replace his "equipment which was stolen recently"... He then presents it to his insurance co. and convinces them that his stolen goods have increased in value since they were purchased. When his insurance co. pays the retailer for the goods on the invoice, he instructs the retailer to supply him with different goods than specified (i.e. three cheap printers instead of one expensive one). He thus gains way more than he "lost" at the cost of the insurance company and could possibly even make money from selling these. This is INSURANCE FRAUD AND IF YOUR COMPANY IS CAUGHT OUT, YOU WILL BE CHARGED & PROSECUTED!! Insurance companies tend to follow up on replacements months after payments have been made, so sooner or later, they will nail you. I also find it difficult to believe that this man`s office gets burgled every three months, since he regularly tries to obtain invoices from our store.

Stanleybrain & Associates in Nigeria are sending international bank drafts for large amounts to SA retailers, in the hope that they can obtain goods first and then pay upon delivery. An international bank draft is just a piece of paper and no definite guarantee that you will get your money! They also request "letters of invitation to SA" in order for their procurement manager to travel to our country to conclude the deal - if you give a letter of invitation, you assist these people in obtaining a Visa which they might otherwise not have gotten! THINK ABOUT IT.

Contact Name: Gail van Zyl-Webber Phone: 082-415-7743 Fax: Email: gailvzw@mweb.co.za Comments: We sent the following email out last week to some of you who are listed on the EasyInfo site. So far we have been able to link 4 other cases directly with this. One company based in Pretoria was taken at exactly the same time as we were by this so-called company Rotel. The driver in this case was called Joseph and drove a white Cressida.The woman concerned is still under arrest and the sooner we can link other cases, the better. Dear Fellow Business Person We are a small supplier of hardware and software. Yesterday we became the victim of a scam being run by a company calling itself Rotel Technologies. We have managed to establish that these people have been going through the Easyinfo web-site on which your business is also registered to put in bogus queries for software. They then purchase software with fake bank-guaranteed cheques. They gave us a Houghton office park address. The standard query appears to be for 10 copies of Windows XP and 10 of Office Pro. Their request is that they need the software urgently and that someone will collect it from you with a bank-guaranteed cheque. They supply copies of an ID document for a white female to go with it. They placed such an order with us on Tuesday, which we filled for them on Tuesday afternoon. They conveniently arrived just after the banks closed. They gave us an FNB bank guaranteed cheque and took the software. When we banked it at ABSA on Wednesday morning we asked for special clearance to be told that there is no such bank account. We engaged the service of a private investigative agency which managed to trace the source of the faxes to an internet café in Braamfontein. They found the woman there with her accomplices who managed to get away. However the woman concerned is now in jail. She had 3 different ID documents on her. However, she refuses to give any information regarding her partners, who it appears are Nigerian. She also refuses to give any information on how and where the software is taken to be sold on. Whilst at the internet café, three fax orders came through confirming the same order for collection from 3 different small companies such as ourselves for collection yesterday afternoon. These companies were all listed on the Easyinfo site. This indicates that the scheme is neither new or unprofitable. If you have any information at all or if you have been a victim of this scam, please urgently contact me or the Rosebank Police. Sincerely Gail Webber CWE Category: Software

Morning all, I just wanted to inform you about a scam, targeting resellers, that is going around. Please will you forward this to all your clients as they might be the next victim. On Friday 20/07/2001 I received an order from a company called "Genco" in Pretoria, the order was placed by a guy called "Darryl". I informed him that for such an big order (R 30 981.46) we need proof of payment before we will release the goods. At 10H39 Friday 20/07/2001 morning I received a fax CASH Deposit slip showing that the amount of R 30 981.46 was deposited into our bank account at Standard Bank Menlyn Park Agency. I checked our bank account on the Internet and the funds were available immediately therefore I had not foreseen any problem with this transaction and send our driver out to deliver the goods at "Genco". Upon arriving at the given address the driver found there was "Genco" company at this address, he then phoned the client, who informed our driver that they were in the process of moving and that they were just across the street and he would quickly send his messenger over to collect the goods. The goods were handed over to his "messenger". Tuesday morning our bank manager phoned me to inform me that payment was stopped on a cheque to the value of R 30 981.46 in the name of Kol. J.S. Bradley (FNB Kolonade branch), to my surprise I found that the actual payment was done by cheque and not cash as stated on the deposit slip. I then requested a copy of the deposit slip from Standard Bank Menlyn Park agency and found that the deposit slip now stated a cheque deposit was made and not a cash deposit as per the copy we received. On investigation we found Kol.J.S. Bradley who informed me that his cheque book was stolen in February 2000 and that we were the 12th company to call upon him who have fallen into the same trap. This happened again yesterday morning with a Company in Fourways, the deposit again made at Standard Bank Menlyn Park Agency and once again a cash deposit slip faxed to the Company in Fourways. All the companies thus far were Computer companies. Please be aware of this and double check all the facts.I ask you to forward this message to any person dealing with computer sales hardware and software. As we have reported this to the Police we have little hope in recovering our money or our goods, but we can prevent this from happening to anyone else if we could get this out to as many Computer resellers and distributors as possible. For more information or if you have any information that could help us please contact me at the numbers given below or alternatively you can phone the SAPS Commercial/Syndicate on 012 401 3416 case number 702/07/2001 and 1490/07/2001.

Motor vehicle Accidents/Third Party Claims It is common knowledge that there are people that consult patients whilst still under treatment and when hospitalised. During this consultation in the hospital bed, the patients are asked to sign forms such as a power of attorney. This authorises the said person to sell the patients claim to the highest bidder. It also authorises the company, that gets the power of attorney, to a percentage of the claim.A person involved in an accident has the right to lodge a claim with the Motor Vehicle Accident Fund. As a rule, it is not necessary to make use of an attorney to lodge a claim with the MVA Fund, but by using an attorney, you can be sure you claim the correct amount. Make sure the accident is reported to the following institutions  Police or Traffic Department within 24 hours.  Insurance within 3 days.  Medical Aid within 30 days. Obtain the relevant case numbers and reference numbers from the respective institutions above. With all the gathered information, you now can visit an attorney to lodge the claim.

There has been a large increase of theft of motor vehicle at Motor Dealerships. When a potential customer arrives at you dealership to test drive one of your vehicles ensure that you take a copy of his/her Identity document as well as his/her drivers licence. Ask for a fixed residential or business address and telephone number. Before allowing him/her to take the vehicle on a demo first check that the telephone number exists and that the person is known at the phone number given or the address. The identity document is not always the real thing. Remember you can`t judge a book by its cover!!!

In the event of a cellphone being stolen please make sure that it is reported with the airtime subscriber. With certain cellphones it is possible to insert an MTN or Vodacom card into the phone. So, if your subscriber is Vodacom, the phone will only be blocked with Vodacom. The thief can then insert an MTN card and continue using the phone. Make sure that this does not happen to you, by contacting the subscriber ± 2 days after the theft was reported. With your serial numbers they will be able to detect whether the phone is in use and what number it is using. You can then contact the thief and ask him to bring back your cellphone or can possibly identify the person with the help of the SAPS.

When walking with your laptop make sure you do not use a latop bag. Rather put it in a sports bag or a very old bag so thugs can not expect you to be carrying an expensive item. If caught by the thugs do not resist as this may put your life in danger. Most thugs do not care about other people`s lives because they do not care about their own lives. Remeber human life can never be replaced but a laptop/cellphone can always be replaced.

If a person wants to order goods from you and he wants to deposit the money into your bank account you must contact your bank after the deposit was made and ask them to get hold off a copy of the orginal deposit slip from the bank where the deposit was made to find out iff it was cash or a cheuqe that was deposit into your account
visman@mweb.co.za

I Am working in the SAPS at the fraud department. Daily whe receive complains of people that has lost goods becouse the buyer deposits a stolen cheuqe into the persons acount and then fax a deposito slip to the seller. The deposit slip shows that there was cash deposit. The seller then phones his bank and the bank confirms that there was a deposit made into the acount. (tip) Ask the persons name who you talk to, and ask if it is a cheuqe or cash , and then ask if there is an hold on the cheuqe. Don`t fall for the story off depositos into accounts. If you are living in Centurion and a person phones and say he is living in Pretoria and he wants to order for example Computors and he wants to deposit the money into your account then you must suspect that ther is something wrong becouse there is places that shell coputors in Pretoria.

Do not install your computer close to a window. Thieves reach in with a hook on the end of stick and pull it out the window. Your alarm will not detect this because the passive infrared detector does not sense any change in infrared (heat) energy.

Walk tall... Body posture and apparent confidence does lots to deter criminals. Muggers look for signs of weakness and they`d rather go after an easy target than someone who looks like they will put up a struggle. However, this does NOT apply to carjackers. For them, use the reverse approach to show that you are not a threat. Also, if buying a second hand anything, ask for a signed contract with the seller`s ID number and check it against his ID book. If he is an honest guy, then he will have no problem with this because he should understand business in a paranoid SA.

When receiving a bank cheque be sure to go to the bank and make sure it`s not a stolen bank cheque and ask for proof that the cheque has been cleared before handing over the goods. I received a bank cheque, was told by the teller it was cleared and when the cheque went to the branch whom issued it, it turned out to be a stolen bank cheque and the amount was unpaid. The person whom issued the cheque denies buying it from me and all I have on him is a pay as you go cell number. Mtn doesn`t keep and records on pay as you go numbers so I lost my laptop and my money.

When walking around having your laptop with you ... rather take it out put it on the desk and lock it securely than leaving it in the laptop carrybag ... it is much easier to steal it if it is in the bag.

When selling Anything to someone (especially second-hand goods), ensure that you get cash in hand before handing over the goods. Many, many people are scammed in many ways, thus losing their property.
