Our company is a procurement company based in Johannesburg. We received an email from a Mr Q. Nkomo a director for a mining company in bulawayo Zimbabwe, called "falcon gold mine" asking as to quote on goods they needed. We googled the products and landed on a German website called Bauer instruments and systems the website is www.baueris.de, we then sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the products. We then received an email from a Mr John Webber email address : email@example.com phone numbers : +27215160606 and ±27849935800 who claimed to be the agent for bauer Germany here in south Africa and was the only one that stocked these products, the suppliers alleged he was based in wellington western cape. He sent us a quote on the products which amounted to over R2.4 million rands. We then contacted our "client" falcon gold zimbabwe and issued them with our quotation. They then sent us the purchase order and intend to purchase letter. Everything had falcon gold mine Zimbabwe company logos as well as the emails. The problem started when Mr John Webber started to demand we deposit 40% of the total amount into another account when we refused he brought down the deposit to 10%. We then realized something was not right and sent our manager to wellington to verify if indeed this bauer instruments and systems had an office. The address that was on the letter head for Mr John Webber never existed the manager drove up and down the street and could never trace the office. We tried to call Mr Webber and he was giving endless excuses and still insisting we make the deposit we then realized it was a scam and decided to contact the real falcon gold mine in Zimbabwe who confirmed we were been scammed. This is the website the Zimbabwe scammers are using www.falcongoldmine.com and these are the emails firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Info@falcongoldmine.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
All these emails and websites are one scam working together to defraud business

I received a phone called in December from a guy called kenny 0782975688 who said he has a customer Makovha Gold Mining in Zimbabwe who are looking for Blamtex Cutters & drills. He stated because this is a big order he cannot supply Makhova mine and would like my company to do so. I received the order from a Elton Boka "purchasing Manager" from Mokohva Mine, 00263 777387653 / 00263 77 738 7654 who sent me a comfirmed order (e-mail - email@example.com). I in turn placed the order with a guy called Nkosi (078 345 4962) & Rodney 078 346 7329 , landline 087 550 2438 from Yudal mining. The order was for over a million, but i decided only purchase goods worth R 61 000.00 from the company. After i have done the deposit, Nedbank phoned me and told about the this Client who only opened an account in Dec 2012

I am happy to confirm that we do have stock of the requested order and delivery to Jhb is within 48hrs upon receipt of payment. This means if you do payment today and fax me proof before 15:00hrs, we will despatch today and you receive your goods on Tuesday morning (10/01/12) by 10:00hrs. Unfortunately you have to pay the VAT and claim it back at point of entry. I hope you find all in order and feel free to call me for any further assistance.
