GAUTENG – A 31-year-old man is expected to appear in court on allegations of fraud involving almost a million rand worth of property sale.

It is alleged that the suspect together with his accomplice, Amogelang Sibi (22) fraudulently created a duplicate email address to scam potential property buyers in Pretoria in October 2018.

Further investigation revealed that the accused allegedly intercepted and re-directed the property buyer to the email address where they provided new banking details of which over R800 000 was transferred.

The summons to appear in court against the suspect on fraud charges was served on him by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team in Pretoria on Monday, 16 August 2021.

Sibi has since been released on a warning and is expected to join the second accused tomorrow at the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on fraud allegations against them.
