W.Cape police arrest foreign ‘fraudsters’
Two Nigerians and two Cameroonians are due to appear in Western Cape courts facing charges of fraud.
CAPE TOWN - Two Nigerian and two Cameroonian nationals are due to appear in Western Cape courts on Monday, facing charges of fraud.
The four were arrested in separate crime stings in the province this week.
The Nigerian nationals were arrested in a Milnerton hotel on Thursday, for allegedly scamming money from victims abroad.
During the raid, police officers confiscated items that suggested the men were involved in a 419 scam, said police spokesperson Andre Traut.
The Cameroonian couple was found with counterfeit money in their possession on Friday, while in Kayamandi, Stellenbosch.
Traut said machinery used to produce fake money was found on the couple's property.
