BEWARE OF THIS BOGUS COLLECTOR!!!!

A CHAP PURPORTING TO BE A ‘MAULANA’ FROM BANGLADESH IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROWL IN SOUTH AFRICA EXTRACTING MONEY IN THE NAME OF THE DEEN. 

This fellow calls himself: Moulana Hafez Mohammed Yousuf. In a letter issued by an entity in Lenasia, namely, Ansaarul Muslimeen, this character is described as “The Ustaad and Director Collector for Char Lakhmi Ganj Shamsul Haq Nooraani Hafezia Madrassa and Yateem Khana, in Bangladesh. It is claimed that his madrasah has a 1000 students. 

The following is a letter from a Brother who had an encounter with the Bogus and crook in Durban:

“This collector came to us and while waiting he appeared very agitated. He eventually left without notice. I then called him back. He refused  and said he will come back the next day. The next day the driver of this collector who brought him from Johannesburg called to say that he ran away from him also, and does not know why he suddenly changed his behaviour.  The driver repeatedly told him “ if you are genuine there is no need to worry.” However, he absconded without  even paying the driver for his transportation. He did not have a passport and claims that it was stolen. He is the ‘director’ of the institute he was collecting for. According to the driver he found out that this collector has asylum papers that means he never had an intention of returning or it could be that he is living here  in South Africa and tried to make some money .” 

The gullibility and naivety of the Muslim community have made South Africa a fertile terrain for Bogus collectors. These scoundrels collect huge amounts of money supposedly for Deeni institutions when in reality they are hoodlums and thieves who utilize the funds for personal gain. 

Funds should not be contributed to these unknown scoundrels. Do not be hoodwinked by letters of authority which the scoundrels fake and fraud. Some genuine organizations due to gullibility issue letters of recommendation. Attach no importance to such letters. The country is literally teeming with bogus collectors.
