‘Scamster’ nabbed at mall

Somerset West police have successfully apprehended a man from Belhar following a series of crimes allegedly committed through social media platforms.

According to spokesperson Sergeant Suzan Jantjies, officers responded to the incident at 13:30 on Wednesday 29 January. “The suspect was arrested at Waterstone Village after targeting people advertising items for sale on Gumtree or Facebook groups,” she said. The suspect would make contact with the seller by means of an SMS to arrange a place and date for the items to be collected by an Uber driver arranged to collect the items.

“The suspect appeared in Somerset West Magistrates’ Court on a charge of fraud on Monday 3 February,” she says.

Anyone who has fallen victim to the scam can contact Detective Sergeant Andry Lottering on 021 850 1344.
