Uys & Van Der Merwe Inc - Scam Debt Collection

Beware of Uys & Van Der Merwe as we are uncovering much more that we thought were few. Many more names to come as time goes on. This company was scamming clients as far as 2010 and still carrying on doing this business. Please go viral with this complaint as we need to stop this company on their tracks. I have Alan who was conned for R31129.38, Ismail for about R20000.00, Ricky of Tekweni Steel Windows for R20000 and another client for aprox R34000.00 whose identity we do not know. This is far bigger than we have anticipated to be and lets get together and report this to the commercial crime prevention unit to take it up further. Go and google Carte Blanche and lay your complaints as the more we send our complaints the better it gets for this to be aired on TV. We are not going to get our money as I firmly believe that an office does not exist. Those that have facebook, please highlight this on and let the message get to the masses. The article is also on twitter. Let us all send our complaints to the Law Society of North West province. Please google and do what you have to do to get these people out of business.

All concerned parties please reply to this with contact numbers so we can take this matter up collectively.

I have collected half my money and have a dispute about the balance. If I do receive all my money then I will post a comment that I have received all my money.

Hi,

We are also struggling to get our payment from Uys & van der Merwe, many promises to pay and blaming of the financial dept but nothing as yet.

I have posted a complaint on this forum previously and was then threatened with a defamation of character lawsuit by Corrie van der Merwe, he claims it was his legal dept & not him threatening, he also claims that he is not the van der Merwe in Uys & van der Merwe and therefore is not accountable for this.

He then promised payment in December and on that basis I removed my post. When he was threatening me with a lawsuit he managed to contact me daily and then once it was removed he was unavailable again. I told him I would repost my complaint, to which he requested I give him until the 2nd Feb before I do anything. It is now the 3rd Feb, I have called twice but he is not available, I've left 2 messages to which he hasn't responded and I've emailed with no reply. Very frustrating.

Please note that on the 4 Feb 2015, the day after I re-posted the complaint above, I received that paperwork and the payment was made, amazing! I can only presume that they will now threaten me with defamation again unless I remove this post. My question is, are they idle threats or can I actually post this if this is my story and it has taken them 7 months to make the payment.

Regards Lisa

Dont let the threats be anything to go by. I have been in contact with another client, Ismail and he has gone onto Radio and made clear his case. I have also received half my payment and still owed R6000 of my money. I have also received threats to remove these complaints. He is not even registered with the law society. It seems to be a bogus company operating from a home. I have had private investigation on this company and it was confirmed he operates from a home. Dont take out your complaints as it costs too much to do that. Why must you remove it now when you should have been paid long ago.

Hi! I am also struggling to get my money out of UYS &VAN DER MERWE. They owe our company approximately R46000.00 less there charges. I have spoken to Corrie van der Merwe this morning and he asked me to cancel my contract with him and then he will pay the money. I have been batteling now for about 3 months to get my money out of him. He is very rude and aggressive over the phone.
