Prokas’s credit sta­tus changed

The Star Early Edition - - COMPANIES -

THE Tran­sUnion Credit Bureau was no longer re­flect­ing disgruntled Cell C client George Prokas as a slow payer, news web­site Fin24 re­ported yes­ter­day. His at­tor­ney Ray­mond Druker re­port­edly told Fin24 that the de­vel­op­ment paved the way for fur­ther dis­cus­sions be­tween Prokas and Cell C. Last week, Prokas spent about R61 000 on a banner he dis­played on a wall out­side the WorldWear Mall on Bey­ers Naude Drive, Jo­han­nes­burg. The banner read: “The most use­less ser­vice provider in SA – Cell C Sand­ton City.” It gave the name of the fran­chise man­ager and his phone num­ber, and claimed he had said his “un­named ex­ec­u­tive head re­fuses to as­sist the cus­tomer”. Cell C ap­plied for an ur­gent in­terim in­ter­dict against the banner. The high court in Jo­han­nes­burg dis­missed the ap­pli­ca­tion last Thurs­day and or­dered that Cell C pay Prokas’s le­gal costs. – Sapa
