Fake buyer pays with fraudulent cheques

Have you seen this man, he has a stolen vehicle in his possession.

A woman opened a case of fraud at the Kagiso Police station after she sold her vehicle to a fake buyer.

“The suspect promised to deposit cash into the woman’s account on the same day. A few hours after the suspect had left, the complainant received a message notification that the amount was deposited into her account,” Kagiso Police spokesperson, Warrant Officer, Solomon Sibiya said.

The following day the suspect arrived at the woman’s house to pick up the vehicle and the documents.

“A few hours later the victim received a call from the bank informing her that the cheque deposited into her account was fraudulent.

With little time to waste, the suspect quickly registered the vehicle under GS Ngobeni’s ownership.

The woman also learned that the suspects details were false after attempting to contact him regarding the fraudulent cheque.

“We are urging the community with information or knows the whereabouts of the suspect to immediately call the Kagiso police detectives. Kagiso police would like to warn residents not to take deals like these lightly. It is important to verify information with the bank involved before releasing the property,” Sibiya advises.

Contact the Kagiso police detectives on 011 696 9139 or Warrant Officer Guda on 078 106 3864 with your information.
