CAPE TOWN - Southern Cape police are trying to track down a man believed to be behind a Wendy house scam in George.
The suspect pretends to be a supplier of the wooden structures.
He then takes potential buyers to a completed Wendy house, which he claims he has built.
People are then asked to pay a deposit in order to receive their new home.
The police's Malcolm Pojie said, “The man calls himself Derrick, Patrick or Eric. He asks for a R1,500 deposit.”
