A suspected scammer is wanted by Heidelberg police after a victim opened a case of ATM fraud recently.
According to police, the man targets elderly people.
The suspect changes the ATM language setting to isiZulu, then pretends to assist an unsuspecting victim to change the settings back to English. While this is being done, he has already seen the victim’s PIN and takes their card and withdraw elsewhere.
“We appeal to the members of the community to come forward with any information that will assist the police to put the perpetrator behind bars,” said spokesperson Constable Doris Nkosi.
