Scott Nguni pretending to be from GD Irons

This guy phoned pretending he is from GD Irons in PTA. He needed a roller urgently in Lansdown for 4 days. I asked him to complete our application form and submit with supporting documents. Luckily our banking details weren't on the quote attached. I made contact with the company as the Gmail account seemed to be a bit suspicious. They confirmed that he is a scam. All documents submitted seems to be originals if you are not aware of a possible scam.

Name: Scott Nguni
Cell: 061 470 4975

I also reported him to The Southern African Fraud Prevention Service (SAFPS)

    Seems like we have just been scammed by the same group of people. The send a order on a GD Irons Construction letterhead for catering. It was Monday afternoon, and they needed the food for lunch the next day. They send POP from Nedbank and it all seems very litigate. I phoned Nedbank and the told me it can take 3 days to clear.

    The same guys reordered more food and drink from us for today to the value of R35,000.00 I felt uneasy and went to the bank.. again Nedbank said they can't help but then we noticed that the POP said it was done 14:38 AM and not PM... clearly the guys missed that detail. So needless to say we lost out on our catering for Tuesday as the invoice amount was about R30,000.00 . We can get footage of the guys because they met us in the parking lot of Pick 'n Pay Capricorn. They went with the names of Paul and Malcom and Trevor. We have all the contact numbers as well.

    Hallo Adelah

    Unfortunately I have no information for this guy. He used false documents with us. Luckily my distrust in people saved me from a potential huge loss.

    If he is using a contract cellphone number there are ways to trace him, but I don't think it is possible on a pay-as-you-go number.

    I am sorry I cannot help. But would love to know if you have been able to trace him somehow. There are people who does tracing if you are willing to spend some money - I can refer you, but don't know how to get the contact details to you as I do not want to post numbers and e-mails without consent.

    Hi There,

    If you have any more information about this person, that would be really helpful.
    It seems he has scammed our company too.
    He has made away with 100 of our Tiffany chairs.

    Using the same name, same proof of residence.
    Even the copy of his I.D does not seem legit.

    Can you please assist?

    Adelah Salie
