SAPS Police hunting for fraudster

Berea detectives are requesting assistance in locating a fraudster who uses a police officer’s photograph to solicit “donations.” The fraudster contacts businesses pretending to be a Captain in the South African Police Service and claims that he works with a non-profit organisation.

We are appealing to anyone who has been approached by this fraudster or knows of his identity to contact Captain Thamie Khoza from the Berea police station on 082 411 6408.
We once again urge communities to be mindful of such scams and not to hand over cash to people that they have not met in person. There are a number of registered charities and one should always verify their particulars before making donations.
