According to the charge sheet, the fraudster, Morekolodi Moseki, 28, who is a sales agent at Bayport acted together with a common purpose with Michael Gabatshabe, 23, and Mauba Moreti, 32, to obtain money by false pretences.

The accused allegedly committed the offence on February 3 in Francistown. Moseki is also facing two similar charges of allegedly obtaining P300,000 each from two more people.
