Police need help to stop fraud syndicate
06 September 2018

The police in the Goldfields have warned community members to be vigilant and asked them to help with information regarding a fraud syndicate that is operational in the Goldfields area.

The syndicate usually targets single women or men who receive large sums of money from their pension funds or the Road Accident Fund (RAF).

It is alleged that someone working directly with these funds have leaked information to the syndicate.

Three incidents have been reported since September last year.

After three people had fallen victim to this scam and lost a combined amount of more than R2 million, the syndicate was cracked and one suspect was arrested.

In all three cases, the victims were approached by suspects of the opposite sex.

They started dating the victims and make sure they fell in love with them before scamming them out of their money.

Three cases were assigned to Det. Sgt Vusimuzi Ngomane of the Provincial Anti-Corruption Unit, who ensured that a thorough investigation was conducted by following every lead provided by the victims.

If anyone has more information about this scam, contact the nearest police station.
