    Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    We dealt with several different companies in Kampala Uganda for the sale of Solar Panels. All sent fraudulent cheques. One company in paticular is Jovitcomputers, the owners name is Bob Ssemugenyi and his brothers name is Godfrey Ssemugenyi. Their real address is 2 Katonga Street, Masaka Uganda. These people also deal with a company called Premium Collection Services, KLM Enterprise, Swab Investments, and the list goes on. They are not who they say they are, they are all thieves. For a full list of their contact information, emails, and phone numbers, please respond.

    Re: Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    I own lordofthe.net and every other week or so I get 2-6 emails like this. If I say no I don't deal with that country they try to offer to send a courier to pick up the stuff. Apparently they think someone that owned a site like LoTN for over 10 years is going to fall for their scams...... I am very aware of the fake cashiers checks that pass banks and then get yanked from people1-2 weeks later by the bank when the bank figures it out. Kinda shocking they can't instant check that stuff...

    Re: Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    Thanks for posting up the information on that scammer.

    Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post containing the name the scammer is using, his email address, phone number and the emails themselves and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".

    Thanks!!

    Wasting a scammer's time legally and safely is called "scambaiting". If you google that word, you will find sites where you can read scambaits, post up the emails and email addresses of scammers, post up a fake website, read up on how to alert a hosting company that they are hosting a fake website, ask questions and learn all about the hobby of scambaiting.

    Re: Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    Please add Atenza Expeditors out of Kampala, Uganda to this list of Solar Scammers. Also posting this "mid-fraud" letter received from NAGEL RANIAH after the initial "Please Quote XXX" mail. This really SHOULD have alerted me before I was nailed but I was naive to this level of fraudulent action.

    Re: Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    That sucks. I am very sorry for you. Thanks for sharing and possibly helping warn future scam victims. You obviously can't get in a time machine and alter history, but by sharing here it might help the world just a little bit. Whether you believe in Karma or not, scammers suck and helping people not get scammed is noble and what this message board is all about.

    Re: Kampala Uganda SCAMS

    Had enquiries for solar panels from duketradingagency.com, Kampala Trading, and an individual called Nabeel Shibley -iamgold, PO Box Luwum St,Plot 5 MM Plaza, Kampala. All the above wanted to pay by cheque or credit card, they are all scammers. They all wanted approx 1.8 tons of goods sent by air courier in order to recieve goods quickley before the stolen cheque or ctredit card owner reports the fraudulent payment and delivery is stopped.
    Played with them for a while asking them for lots of info and my view is that they are all either in the same room, are the same people or are at least are all communicating with each other. Finally told them i will only accept money transfer and not heard anything since, interestingly all the other newer scam emails from similar people have also stopped -they are all in it together
