Young woman a victim of scam

A young woman was the victim of a scam at the Brad Street business centre in Umkomaas, on Tuesday May 1.

At about 14.20 a mother sent her daughter to draw money from the ATM.

After drawing the money and buying a cold drink, the young woman met an unknown male who told her of jobs that were being offered.

Realising that the girl was interested, he allegedly told her that before she went to collect the job application forms in a nearby shop, she had to hand her cell ‘phone and money to him.

She trusted him and acceded to his request.

She went to a shop “to collect the application forms”,  and realising that something was amiss, she returned and began looking for the male, who had disappeared. Having lost R1 360 and her cell ‘phone, she reported the matter to the police.

Capt Shaik of the Umkomaas SAPS has requested members of the public to be extremely careful and not to part with their possessions to unknown persons.
