A bank consultant arrested for allegedly stealing more than R1m from the client's account



When the client in Musina, Limpopo was cheated by more than $ 1 million, Hawks was flinging to one of the bank's consultants.

Hoxh's Detective for serious commercial crime arrested a 47-year-old woman on Tuesday.

"The consultant … reportedly attacked the client's bank account earlier this month and falsely transferred sums of money to various fictitious accounts, where her fellow unions would then allegedly retire," said Hawks spokesman Matimba Maluleke.

"So far, Hoxh's investigation revealed that the consultant allegedly approved replicated bank cards with a valid PIN code at the victim's account to allow the robberies to appear as if they were client transactions," Malluck added.

Maloulek said the woman is likely to face charges of fraud, money laundering and violations of the Law on Electronic Communications and Transactions.

He said additional arrests could not be dropped as the investigation continues.
