We are pleased to announce that we took action with this scammer. The fake profile was removed from Facebook after being reported & the free website created with WIX was removed after we contact the WIX abuse team. Unfortunately there will be more & this is not the first incident that scam artists use our accredited company name, however we will do our utmost best to ensure our clients (potential or existing) are kept safe.
This serves as a reminder to please be vigilant when purchasing containers.
The false advertisements being posted
We would like to alert our valued clients that the above company OMEGA CONTAINERS / NCT CONTAINERS is not a legitimate company and we have no association with them.
They have cloned our website (which we have worked so hard on to maintain) and are using our photos as their own including our client reviews (simply changing the client’s names).
The above office block (our Head Office) is located in Durban and not in Johannesburg as per their invoices and you are welcome to visit us at 1266 Bluff Rd.
Our advise to clients remains the same: please do your homework on companies & if something seems too good to be true it always is. We will always allow our clients to view containers before making a decision to purchase. All stock that we supply is stock that is owned by Omega Container – PTY LTD. Any company that does not allow you to view & forces you to make payment ASAP is fraudulent. Ask a company for their VAT registration certificate, CK documents, proof of banking details etc (these are all available on request and is your right as a consumer to do so). They should have these if they are a legitimate business. The decision to part with your hard earned money is a big one, please be careful.
We will be reporting this profile to Facebook including the relevant authorities.
