Police in KwaZulu Natal are making an appeal to women in the province to be alert at all times and not fall victim to con men who target them for their hard earned money. There are criminals who target older, widowed or divorced women, pretending to show interest in having a relationship with them.
They would then persuade them to resign from their employment for better investment opportunities or convince them to consult a ‘traditional doctor’ who assists with multiplying cash using ‘black magic’.
Women had fallen victim to such modus operandi and it is not easy to investigate cases where there has been an agreement in the exchange of cash in a romantic relationship. Women are warned to be vigilant at all times and not to trust anyone with their life savings.
