The Society for Graduate and Professional  Engineers




NEDBANK - are now running SPE


Nedbank Card Division have refunded a  Professional Fraudster his Application and Pending Membership fees which were forfeited to the Society in terms of Society rules and Constitution, with total disregard to Engineering Profession rules both locally and Internationally , and without any Communication to our Society. The Money has been removed ( STOLEN )  from our Bank account without any notification to the Society. We have a full signed document authorising the Credit Card transaction as shown below. It also confirms the the Applicant abides by the rules of the Society.

This is the first time in my 18 years that this has ever happened to our Society.

We have banked with Nedbank for over 21 years and the Executive Director  being the same person for the last 18 years.

Nedbank card division by their actions clearly Condone Fraud and an acceptable norm in South Africa.

It also indicates that NEDBANK  have a no care attitude to their Customers and in our case they are setting the Rules of Membership of our Society and how the Professional Engineers do Business.

We have no contact Name, or contact Numbers at Nedbank ( as all their business is done via a call centre  )but we have to public via Name and Shame at   and Hollo Peter at to get some action. 

 A major warning to South Africa Banking Clients.

Nedbank are now running the Society of Professional Engineers and have amended our  Constitution and rules to accept Fraudsters and people with false Qualifications, and Nedbank they will give you your money back !

Dear Sir, 

In order for us to complete your Application and assist you with your problem, we need a complete breakdown on what you have done in the last 25 years in the Engineering Profession. What you faxed to SPE  is very vague and unacceptable for a 25 year period.

Can you give me details of your CPD program for the last 25 years. ( Continued Professional Development ) and the Courses you have attended and the CPD Points earned.  This is now an International requirement.  

The Problem we have is ( A ) nobody has heard of you and your two references donít answer their phones.  ( B ) Your Name on your Application form is Eliahu Amber.  On the one Certificate it is Eliah Amber  and the one on your degree  seems to read Eligalui.  All differ.

Our Professional Body has to be absolutely correct and above reproach in terms of our standing worldwide.

Your only Reference from Haggie is 25 years old and can not be contacted.

Please give me a complete breakdown of your Engineering Experience and the projects your have worked on with Contactable references.

Please also give me a Copy of your South African ID.  

Many thanks,
