The affordable education loan option
Durban - Two KwaZulu-Natal men have been arrested for conning people out of cash by promising to double their money, police said on Tuesday.
The men, who posed as traditional doctors, were arrested at Madadeni, near Newcastle, early on Tuesday by police acting on a tip-off, said Captain Thulani Zwane.
“They were found in possession of a briefcase full of counterfeit cash that is suspected to be used for defrauding people,” he said.
Police later established that the men were also wanted for robbery, fraud and dealing in drugs in Madadeni, Ladysmith, Pietermaritzburg, Point and Durban.
“Police appeal to anyone who might have been conned to contact Newcastle police station or any local police station,” Zwane said.
He said the men, aged 30 and 40, would appear in the Madadeni Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
