More Arrests Over R99 Debit Order Scam
Father & Son Arrested For R18 Million Role In Scam
2 more arrests have been made related to the scam involving R99 debit orders
Durban residents, Ravenda Singh and Andrew Singh have been arrested for their part in the R99 debt order scam that raked in R18 Million.
Father and Son, Ravenda and Andrew were arrested and charged with their role in a scam that involved R99 debit orders from November 2018 till Feb 2019. They were the directors of a call centre in KZN, called Sub User that was involved in the scam. Investigations by the banks and in conjunction with the Hawks revealed their involvement.
Other high profile arrests, related to call centres used in the scam, were made last year when two other men (Jason Foster and Richard Marsden) tried to fly out the country but were swooped up by the cops as they tried to flee.
Overall the Hawks think the scam brought in the syndicate around R248 Million from unsuspecting consumers who were repeatedly hit with bogus debit orders for R99 at a time.
