Eleven South Africans were among twenty
people including United States suspects who were
arrested on Tuesday on charges which include cyber financial fraud.
The arrests follow an operation headed by
the United States Homeland Security Investigations which shows that a West
African transnational organized crime enterprise was involved in numerous
complex financial fraud schemes over the internet.
Captain Paul Ramaloko said the suspects
were arrested on Tuesday during a sting operation between the Hawks and the
Homeland Security Investigations.
He added that all the suspects were taken
to the Pretoria Magistrate Court and charged with
theft, fraud and corruption.
