Pretoria - Twelve people linked to a cybercrime syndicate appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, the SABC reported.

They allegedly defrauded people of their money globally using fake credit card information.

Last Tuesday, 12 people were arrested in Pretoria and 10 in the US and Canada, authorities from the three countries said.

The arrests followed a joint operation by the Hawks, Crime Intelligence, the SA Tactical Response Team, the home affairs department and Interpol, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security Investigations.

The matter was postponed to June 12.
