Fraudsters nabbed at Tubatse Crossing


Four men are behind bars after an attempted fraud backfired.

Gustaff Ntsodi (40 Ernest Maloma (34), Nongo Latakgomo (50) and Christopher Legodi (55) appeared in the Praktiseer Magistrate’s court last Friday on charges of fraud.

Following a tip-off, the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team pounced on the suspects inside one the bank at Tubatse Crossing, while they were being served by a consultant whom they had apparently offered a bribe to assist them in accessing funds from a business account they provided.

“It is alleged that the plot was for the consultant to make an immediate transfer of a substantial amount into several account of the suspects. This was to be repeated on a weekly basis until the said account was drained and for her efforts, the consultant was reportedly promised a significant amount of money per transaction,” said Hawks’ spokesman, Capt Matimba Maluleke.
Maluleke said the consultant cooperatively played along after having alerted the manager and the suspects were arrested while still submitting their account details.
They are in custody until June 5.
