Confirmation of a Company's existence (possible scam)
Good day sir/Madame

I just want to find out whether a certain company in South Africa has any associations with Namibia because i found a advert of their services in the Namibia Newspaper.I am really interested in their service but im reluctant and sceptical about it due to some suspicions.They are a linking organization which links clients to sponsors abroad,they do charge fees for it.Therefore i just want to find out if they are genuine.If you are equally not aware please do call whom ever could perhaps find out this information.

Name -Career Marketing International

Please assist me just to confirm whether their service is not a scam or whether it is.My personal email

Poor Service
My daughter applied for SA ID at the High Commission in Windhoek 10 years ago. To date she hasn't received the ID yet and they kept telling us that they did not receive it yet. We gave up hope of following up. Now I believe that if she applies in South Africa for an ID, she has to pay for a replacement.

I would also like to bring to your attention that as there is only a High Commission office in Windhoek, Namibia, we South African citizens who live outside of Windhoek, have to travel long distances to get there. I live in Walvis Bay which is about 400km from Windhoek. As the High Commission office closes at 12H15, it means that if you don't have your own transport, you have to travel the day before and book into a guesthouse. So applying for a new passport costs you about R1500.00 (if not more) and it takes a minimum of 6 months before you get it. Yet if you apply while on holiday in South Africa, it takes 5 - 10 days (if not less).

The follow up of applications is just as difficult as you can hardly ever get through as no-one answers and when they do, the right person is never available and no-one else can assist as it's not their job.
