Abusive behaviours

Desire Lategan has received from me last year (2012) in December (R9, 700.00) . She pretended to have a two bed rooms flat in claremont that I would occupy from 01/01/2013. Up to that day there was no flat and it turned out that she was lying and used the money. The matter was taken to court and she was ordered to refund. But since then, she changed her address and she is to be found no where. My money is still not paid yet. If anyone knows where she is, plz contact me.

I agree this person Desiree Lategan can not be trusted she will lie,postpone and do everything in order to not repay her clients ...... be aware very aware of her. Please advise of any Business or Residential address available for her or her husband Leonard this is needed in order to track them down in order to institute legal action and to try and stop them from doing what they are doing to the trusting public.

Hi all... have you had any luck tracking down Desiree (Des) and Leonard Lategan? Has anyone joined forces in tracking her down? Anyone have a physical address for them yet?

I was scammed out of my deposit for a Rental as well, and over the last 2 days received calls from as many who have also been defrauded by Des. I currently have debt collectors on the case, will keep you informed.

HI there. I have several questions. I believe that she has made off with my deposit as is not returning my calls and her whatsapp account has gone "dark". I do, however, have another number for her, which she is not aware that I do. Would this be of any use to you?

Further to this, I was told that the landlord is responsible for the deposit, and that even though I paid Des, the landlord must stand in for it. Can you shed any light?
