INFORMATION ON SAAMBOU BANK, FIRST NATIONAL BANK AND OTHERS
Any person who requires information relating to the erstwhile activities of Saambou Bank may employ the understated telephone numbers and references to erstwhile Saambou assets, liabilities and/or relationships when making enquiries which otherwise would have been dealt with by the Office of the Receiver for Creditors of Saambou (erstwhile Curator), which has now decided to close its Office after having completed its task in terms of the Court order sanctioning the Scheme of Arrangement between Saambou Bank, its creditors and its members.

The following information could facilitate the prompt finalisation of enquiries:
• account numbers,
• correct names and initials (point out if joint account),
• ID numbers (new and/or old),
• property descriptions (erf numbers and/or addresses)
• any relevant correspondence or
• history available.

12. Cessions of Policies
i.f.o. SAAMBOU
When policies or any other securities which had been ceded, either as security for the payment of a debt or as collateral security supplementing existing security in favour of Saambou Bank, where the debts have been extinguished, have not been receded to the owners/debtors enquiries may be directed at FNB, African Bank, Imperial Bank or Nedbank. In the event of neither of these entities confirming their involvement, the enquirer will be free to approach the insurance company and to claim cancellation of the cession in favour of the true owner of the policy, or the beneficiary in the event of the policy holder's death. This clause will therefore authorise and assist the holder of the security to cancel and/or retransfer the security to the legal holder/owner/beneficiary thereof. This clause will equally support any legal action which the enquirer or his estate may have to take in order to ensure the retransfer of the policy or such other security into his/her name, including in support of an application to Court, if necessary.
13. Collateral Securities
i.f.o. SAAMBOU Bank
The purpose of this notification is to assist any enquirer who would (in our experience) ordinarily have directed his enquiries to the Office of the Receiver for Creditors of Saambou which is now closed, as stated above.
