|+12 Martin Ndebele Amakhosi Cultural Group A man called my business claiming to be Martin Ndebele from Amakhosi Cultural Group using the number 0837018648 and later 0730011040. He wanted a quote for catering for a meeting which was to take place in Pinetown. After getting the quote he deposited a cheque which was over by R8500 and then demanded an immediate refund or else they would cancel the job. I advised them to cancel as no refund would be made on an uncleared cheque. The following day the bank called to notify me that the cheque deposited was fraudulent as I had already suspected.|

he later called and said they will deposit the money before 15h30 then i got this fake message that he deposited more than i quoted him with R8400.00 difference. he called to check if i got the money and i told him that i got the notification and not the money,so he disconnected. lets expose this guy and hope the police does something about it because iam worries about our sisters and brothers who are not aware of him and fall for his stupid lies and give him the money

I received a call from a guy called Martin, claiming he has a catering job for me ,for 60 people, needing Rice, curry chicken, beef stew, 2 veg, 2 salad, 60 variety drinks and still water. After giving him my quotation he then in hurry called me told me they will deposit the money before the event, in an hour. Then an hour later I received an SMS notification from standard bank, with an over payment. Few minutes later he calls me, claiming there was a mistake done, and they need to pay their transport man urgently and that he needs a deposit. I must pay back at least R1500 via ewallet. Fortunately I went into my bank account to check if there was really a payment done, only to find nothing.He kept on calling me back asking if I do not even have R500 to give the transport man and I said no. I started getting suspicious. And decided to investigate....
thank God for this page.

The man called us this morning asking for a catering service for 50 people on Saturday. he then insisted that they will do a payment as soon as possible. the amount we charged them was R7500. but when they made a payment it was R14500. they sent a notice of payment from absa. after that he called asking us to urgently return the other R7000 because they need to do a booking somewhere else for transport, and he asked how much do we have so we can give it to him to pay for the transport. we then realised it was a scam.

The man has just offered me a catering job, nothing has happened yet, but I am now scared he might use my details for something illegal, and I am glad i stumbled into this blog before I got the false transfer into my account.
