Beware Of Street Tricksters!

We carry an article in this publication about a retired woman who fell prey to scammers who made away with her life savings amounting to P228, 000.

This follows on the heels of a story of another elderly woman who also lost half a million to tricksters, possibly the same people, as both women were approached by the fake prophets, in Ramotswa.

These two elderly victims should be commended, because sharing their experiences will definitely help many avoid falling into the same trap. These scammers have been operating across the country since time immemorial, but amazingly, it is very rare for them to get caught, and if they do get caught, they spend little time in jail before they are released. The sentences, they usually get is such a slap in the wrist, so much that after being released from jail, they go back to terrorising law abiding citizens by stealing their hard earned cash.
