The scam involves fraudsters using departmental letterheads to send fake tenders to companies and request them to supply equipment and goods. The companies targeted are asked to supply specific products to the department. When you search for the products online, there is usually only a single company listed in South Africa which offers them. While the company providing the products may look legitimate, it is part of the scam — and it is here where the victim loses their money. The victim purchases and pays for the goods, and they are then told by the fake company that the products have been delivered to the Department of Health. This is a con — the tender, the company selling the products, and the departmental officials listed in the tender documents are all fake.

My sincere belief is that building a business is all about people and products and Carte Blanche is proof of that. It hasn’t all been easy but it has always been great fun. I like to think I have had the foresight and good fortune to have surrounded myself with some great people who have shared and pursued my vision for this fabulous company. Today Carte Blanche is a large and successful organisation with a very strong brand and product portfolio represented across many different categories and markets globally.
However what has not changed over the years is the core value of believing passionately in what we do which is at the heart of our business. We have also been fortunate enough to have built an incredibly loyal following of Me to You fans and consumers without whom we would not have a business. It has been hugely satisfying for me personally to watch the company grow and evolve. By continuing to listen to our consumers and customers and maintaining the passion we have for our products I am even more excited by the huge opportunities that lie ahead for Carte Blanche.

I first used the site late , and have been monitoring it since I was defrauded by a female site member in April That fraud only happened because the company failed to inform me that they had deactivated the female member that I had contacted via their website.

The Art of Rejection In my dating experiences as a Queer Cripple, any time I have been rejected, I have never really been given one of the safe stock answers, but instead I have been hit with a barrage of honesty — typically, a direct result of my crippledness. How exactly do you tell this person that a their sense of humor is non-existent, b despite their belief to the contrary, you don’t want them in bed right here and now actually what a guy said to me once.
Ewwwwwww , and c you’re just not that into them? We’d all like to assume that we’d have a stock rejection answer that goes something like this: They are designed to say “Thanks, but no. Last night for instance, I was talking to this dude online and he first emailed with: I let that go and said I had Cerebral Palsy as we all know, the sexiest of the Palsies — sorry Bell’s Palsy — maybe next year. At this point, I was actually surprised and taken aback by the response I got. This guy thought that because his relative had the same ‘condition’ and it freaked him out, he couldn’t go out with me, as the association with the ‘disease’ was too strong for him.
He went on to say, that I shouldn’t be insulted and that he respects me lots. Let’s break down his response together, shall we this’ll be fun: You don’t respect me, and you did insult me.
Tonight on Carte Blanche – South African Game Makers
An annual tradition dating back to — the year Apple announced default encryption for devices — the DA’s “Smartphone Encryption and Public Safety” report [PDF] is full of the same old arguments about “lawful access” and evidence-free assertions about criminals winning the tech arms race. Five months later, we’re still waiting for the FBI to update its number of locked devices. Vance still presents encryption as an insurmountable problem, using mainly Apple’s multiple patches of security holes cops also found useful as the leading indicator.
The report is a little shorter this year but it does contain just enough stuff to be persuasive to those easily-persuaded by emotional appeals. Vance runs through a short list of awful crime solved by device access child porn, assault and another list of crimes unsolved molestation, murder designed to make people’s hearts do all their thinking. While it’s certainly true some horrible criminal acts will directly implicate device encryption, the fact of the matter is a majority of the locked phone-centric criminal acts are the type that won’t make headlines or motivate lawmakers.
