Woman defrauded at ATM

Within an hour a Welkom woman (39) was defrauded of R7 800 when an unknown man hacked her ATM card.

“A case of fraud is being investigated after the man, who was seen climbing into a silver Volkswagen Polo with the registration number HR08KM GP, scammed the woman,” says Capt. Stephen Thakeng, police spokes­person.

The woman alleges that on 23 December last year at approximately 17:00 she was at a bank in Bok Street to use the ATM.

She saw a cellphone at the ATM and called an unknown African man standing nearby, thinking it was his.

The woman then allegedly inserted her bank card into the ATM and entered her PIN.

The man then intervened and started pushing buttons on the ATM.

She told him that she does not need any assistance and tried to cancel the transaction, but was unsuccessful.

She then saw the man climbing into the silver Polo, says Thakeng.

She tried to stop her card at the bank, but received three notifications of transactions amounting to R7 800.

People with information are requested to contact Det. Sgt Malefetsane Tilo of the Welkom Detective Services at 057-391-6275 during office hours or on 083-268-0908.
