Hi there and thank you for your question,
I will try to assist you with your legal question but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions as you like until you are 100% satisfied.
I'm sorry to say this but I think that you've been scammed by Casview loans Company in Cape Town!
I think that this is a fraud that the company / the directors of the company have committed, which is actually a crime.
Your options are either to report this matter to the police and ask them to investigate the fraud (obviously they will need copies of ALL information that you can give them, including the company name, the email address, telephone numbers, bank account details of where you paid the money, etc) and then the police will arrest and prosecute the guy. OR you can treat this as a civil matter and sue the guy for your money back.
In my opinion the criminal route is the best.
As part of the criminal conviction the fraudster can be ordered to pay back the money, and the Magistrate can even order that his assets be attached by the sheriff to sell to give you the money back.
Please note that this will NOT be a quick solution. It might take between 6 months to a year!
You need to start step 1 and print everything out; write a statement with dates and descriptions of what happened as best as you can; and then open a case of fraud with the police. Tell the police that it is NOT a civil dispute. This is a case of FRAUD and you want them to investigate it!
