Pretoria -

A 51-year-old man was arrested for fraud in Pretoria, the Hawks said on Monday.

Captain Paul Ramaloko said the man was arrested on Friday, after several complaints were brought to the Hawks about a man called “Davie”, soliciting money from individuals promising them learner's and driver's licences.

“The suspect claimed to be having links within the traffic department, which enabled him to facilitate acquiring driving documents within a week at a cost of R800.”

Ramaloko said the man was arrested in Waterkloof minutes after he had collected R2 000 in cash, from some of his victims.

“Upon visiting his rented Pretoria hotel, where he had been staying with his wife and four children for some time, at a cost of R800 a day, several ID copies and pictures suspected to belong to his victims were confiscated.”

He would appear in the Hatfield Magistrate's Court on Monday, facing fraud charges. - Sapa
