WARNING: Samy the Conman Claiming to work at SARS Customs

Woodstock, Cape Town: WARNING: Samy the Conman Claiming to work at SARS Customs directly involved with the auctioning off of the goods repossessed by the government from the defaulters. According to the ID he presented his real name is Philip Adriaan Samuels – this is assuming that his ID card is legitimate. The picture on his ID card is legitimate though. He does however look a little older than his ID number suggests.

He is a motor mouth, basically he can’t stop talking. He is erratic and frantic and at times rather incoherent. Samy does however succeed in keeping with the theme that he is in this for himself and he could essentially cut you in for a small fee. He keeps insisting that no money will ever exchange hands until you have whatever goods you need.

When he starts he lays out his story like a man interested in you and what you do. This is hardly suspicious, in fact it is so adroit that you will never see him coming. In his interest in you Samy casually mentions this good deal on whatever property he recently acquired, at this point whether you know it or not your interest has been thoroughly piqued.

Here on out you are likely to unwittingly drive Samy’s agenda; this gives you a sense of security and trust because he never suggested that you go there, you did. Samy will however give numerous examples of rich white people who are on the “inside” and basically get everything they want for next to nothing – through him.

He will tell you about SARS inventory list of repossessed goods and the values of different items. Anything from Land, Houses, Cars, Computers to Cell Phones and even Businesses.

Basically this guy is a two-bit crook.

He then quickly changes his story and tell you to make a deal happen he needs a small amount, cash or through cardless service. Once he is gone he phones or text and changes his story and ask for a slightly larger amount but nowhere near the value of the goods. At this point he is initiating the ultra fleecing – RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.

I met this guy in Woodstock, Cape Town. He basically walked into my office and started making conversation. When I asked my colleagues if they know this guy, they say they don’t, if I ask how he got in, no one knows. He somehow slithered in.

It is not unthinkable that he operates in the greater Cape Town area and even across the province. He is coloured. Dark skin. Greying hair. Somewhat round. He actually looks older than someone who was born on 1973.
