Alleged online dating scammer case postponed

A 23-year-old woman briefly appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate Court on Thursday, for her alleged involvement in an online dating scam. This follows her arrest by the Hawks the same day.

The Hawk’s Siyabulela Vukubi said Karabo Alexandra Moses was arrested after a complaint was lodged to the Hawks and revealed that an amount of R750 000 was deposited into her bank account by the complainant.

‘’Karabo is directly linked to a case of online dating scam where Puis Emokpe(49) who is regarded as the kingpin is still in custody after his arrest in June 2022,’’ said Lt. Gen. Siyabulela Vukubi.

Moses is expected to join her co accused Pius Emokpe on 28 September 2023 at the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court where they will both appear.
