Hardy Street resident robbed … again
A Hardy Street woman was robbed for the ‘umpteenth’ time on Sunday evening. The woman, who lives alone, arrived at home to find a man in her house who forcefully grabbed her handbag which contained several thousand Rand, cellphone and personal documents. Her attacker then fled.
The resident has suffered numerous other robberies and break-ins over the past few years, despite her beefing up security at the house.

ATM scams continue to fleece members of the public

Card cloning, ATM scam reaching plague like proportions
ATM scams continue
A man was scammed out of R3600 when his bank card was cloned while using the ABSA ATM on Victoria Street last Saturday. Later, he received notification that money had been withdrawn from his account from the Capitec ATM in the Boulevard Centre. There was a similar incident at an ATM on Karelandman Street days later when a customer’s bank card appeared to get jammed in the ATM.
He later received an alert that R2000 had been fraudulently withdrawn from his bank account.
