SA: Pretoria cops hunt Zim fraudster

JOHANNESBURG - Pretoria Central police have appealed to the public for help in tracing three men wanted in connection with fraud.

SA-Police-New-250Illegal immigrant Daniel Baloyi from Zimbabwe is wanted for fraudulently using someone else’s identity document, Captain Augustinah Selepe said on Saturday.

The complainant in the case alleged that he went to the SA Revenue Service (SARS) to submit his annual income tax return. He was surprised to find that his return had “already been submitted”.

“The work address that was provided by the suspect [Baloyi] was not the same as the complainant. He used the same identity document to open accounts.

“He [had] taken employment as [a] security officer using [the] complainant’s identity and he is still at large. A warrant of arrest has been issued for this suspect,” Selepe said.

Meanwhile, Eric Resimati Manganye is wanted for misrepresenting that he has an RDP house for sale at Lotus Gardens in Pretoria. It is alleged that the RDP house was previously registered in his name.

He sold the RDP house to more than two people and took deposits from the complainants simultaneously. He demanded a deposit of R50,000 and provided the complainants with another person’s bank account number in order for them to pay the outstanding balance.

“The suspect [Manganye] is using a fraudulent identity document bearing his photo and his name, but the identity number belongs to a deceased woman. A warrant of arrest has been issued for this suspect,” Selepe said.

Christaan Tumelo Comfort Molefe, 30, is wanted to help with the arrest of Manganye. His bank account details were provided to the complainants to deposit the outstanding balance.

He is now wanted for questioning and was last seen at the Ficksburg Bridge border post with Lesotho travelling on foot, Selepe said.
