We have been scammed!!!

Andre BurgerFor a while now we have been planning to upgrade our establishment to a 5 star guest house and to put our plans in motion we contacted our grading assessor Mr Andre Burger for advice. He made an appointment to come and assess our establishment on the 1st of March 2011.


He arrived and assessed our guest house with the promise to send us a report with in the week, with guidelines on how proceed to a 5 star establishment.  Since the 1st of March 2011 we have not been able to reach him by cellphone or email.

Today we received an email from the Tourism Grading Council to to inform us that Mr Andre Burger is no longer an accredited TGSA assessor.  His contract and accreditation was terminated on the 6th of December 2010. We were under the impression he is still working for the Tourism Grading Council and he did not correct us.

The TGCSA has discovered that Mr Burger has continued to conduct assessments after his termination.  Futhermore, he misled clients by providing them with fraudulent invoices i.e with his personal banking details on them.

We were one of them. We trusted him and he scammed us! Who can one trust? We paid for advice and receive zero and we are standing at the losing end.
