Fraudulent Activity has Re-Emerged Using Alias ‘Robert Gumede’

You may remember a number of alerts we have sent in the past involving an individual who fraudulently uses the name ‘Robert Gumede’ (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH well-known South African businessman). Alias ‘Mr Gumede’ books accommodation and then sends a fake Proof of Payment that exceeds the booked amount. He thereafter requests the over-balance to be paid back to him. We have received information that he is again approaching and pestering a number of guesthouses and BnBs, this time in the East London area. Should your establishment receive a request for a booking from him, please contact us at tebogo@tourismsafety.tbcsa.travel or on (012) 664 0120.
