Johannesburg - The director of the Platinum Forex Group, an alleged Ponzi scheme, was released on R100 000 bail by the Bellville Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, police said.
Directorate for Priority Crime investigation (Hawks) spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha said Colin Davids, 48, was arrested earlier in the day on charges of contravening the FAIS Act and the Banks Act.“Davids, a pastor at New Direction Grace Ministries in Parow, Cape Town, was allegedly running a Ponzi scheme whose investors were mainly government employees who had retired or resigned from the service.” In July 2015, Platinum Forex Group’s R100 million worth of assets were frozen on the order of the Western Cape High Court following the National Director of Public Prosecutions’s application for a Preservation Order in terms of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act, Ramovha added.
Davids’ case has been postponed to 18 January 2017 to allow for further investigations.
For some reason, this guy you just met at a party has suddenly taken a liking to you.
To him, you seem sharp and able to recognize a gold mine when you see it.

So why not hand over a few thousand dollars before it's too late?Despite what your trustworthy friends say, it's better to walk away. Unfortunately, not all financial schemes look the same, which makes it hard to spot one when you're victimized.In true Darwinian style, clever scammers are able to thrive by consistently adapting and evolving their schemes to come up with new ways to con others out of their life savings. And, although it's based on a classic formula, the idea can be applied in countless ways to deceive unsuspecting victims.
