A man arrested on fraud charges
25 April 2012
Yesterday a 54-year-old man was arrested by Goodwood police for fraud.
The police’s FC van Wyk said the suspect defrauded people by posing as a legal representative and operated in Goodwood under the business name Legal Max.
Van Wyk said the suspect would accept money from people with the promise that he will represent them in their cases.
Clients later discovered he was not a legal representative and he never worked on any cases.
Van Wyk said the suspect received R450 000 for cases such as accidents, illegal evictions and civil matters.
The suspect will appear in the Goodwood Magistrates Court tomorrow.
Any victims of the crime are requested to contact the investigating officer Detective Constable Cheslin Cuiens on 021 597 1760.
