Scammed by ‘landscapers’

“They presented us with a beautiful portfolio, but we received the complete opposite.”

So says Chantel Blignaut, Principal of Mulberry Bush Pre-school in Hermanus. She claims the school was scammed by a company named Amarok Landscaping into paying R4 000 for a service not rendered.

Blignaut explains the school was in need of landscaping at the front of their building and was approached by Amarok Landscaping, which offered them a reasonable deal with a flawless portfolio.

“Our plan was to start with the landscaping in December, but the landscapers pushed a good price, because they had materials left from a previous job.”

According to Blignaut, six people from the company showed up on Wednesday 2 October and started levelling the ground and laying the stones and glue. “We were informed the glue would set within a few hours,” she said.

Her husband assessed the work afterwards and noticed the glue was not set. They then contacted the company and were told people would be there the next morning to fix the problem, but they never pitched.

When the cars drove onto the pitch the next day it crushed and turned into dust.

“We have tried contacting them on several occasions, but could not get through,” she says, adding that people should first research a company before committing to anything. Hermanus Times tried to contact Amarok Landscaping numerous times with no success. There is also no website or social media pages.
