Retired man defrauded of R100 000

A retired mine worker was de­frauded of R100 000 by three people claiming to be officials of the Harmony Gold Mine in Welkom.

On 1 April, two men and a woman visited the 58-year-old fraud victim at his home in Rheederpark, Welkom, to tell him that not all of his pension money had been paid out.

The two African males and a female were all formally and neatly dressed.

The males both wore ties.

They produced a document which showed particulars of the retired miner, and claimed that they were there to arrange for him to obtain all that was due to him.

The requested him to sign a document and accompany them to the bank.

An amount of money was transferred, but the fraudsters claimed that an R100 000 was wrongfully transferred to his bank account and that he must repay them the money.

He repaid the amount.

A case of fraud has been registered.

“Pensioners are warned not to believe anyone coming to their home.

“Instead, should they have any enquiries, they should go to their previous place of employment,” says Capt. Stephen Thakeng, police spokesperson.

Should anyone have information that could lead to the arrests of these three fraudsters, they can call Det. Sgt Malefetsane Tilo of the Welkom Detective Services on 057-391-6275 during office hours, or on 083-268-0908.
