Two Nigerian men and South African women arrested over online dating scam

South African Police on Tuesday, August 23, arrested two Nigerian men and South African women in Cape Town, who were working together to dupe local women seeking for love online.

The fraudsters aged between 27 and 38 opened bank accounts with all the banks in South Africa and have been using the accounts to swindle and receive monies from their online dating victims.
According to the South African Police Service, one of the suspects (pictured) was caught shortly after he received a dummy parcel from the Hawks at Postnet Somerset West Mall.

Subsequently, Hawks seized five laptops and 12 cellphones. Two of the laptops have profiles of people who have been fraudulently used to scam people online. They made their first appearance at the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, August 25.
