During the operation, a substantial amount of cash, alcohol, and compromised bank cards were found. These items were possibly linked to the fraudulent activities. The suspects were transported to Durban North SAPS for further investigation and processing.

According to Marshall Security’s managing director, Tyron Powell, the suspects’ cunning modus operandi involved posing as bank employees and tricking unsuspecting individuals into revealing their security details.

With unauthorized access to victims’ phone banking, the fraudsters executed unauthorized fund transfers into fraudulent bank accounts. They then used the ill-gotten gains for various purchases until the bank’s red flags were raised.

As the investigation continues, bank forensics investigators are assisting with the case at the Durban North SAPS. Powell strongly advises the public to remain vigilant, safeguard their personal information, and promptly report any suspicious activity.

Four suspects, aged between 27 and 34 years old, have been arrested for fraud. They are expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
