South Africans have been warned about a scam which makes people believe they have unpaid traffic fines.  Police say a text message is sent to victims, telling them to contact a constable to settle the debt that they owe to the traffic department. The victims are then asked to deposit money into an account for their case to be closed.

The Hawks’ Hangwani Mulaudzi explains, “We just want to warn the public that this is not how we operate as police. Such scams should be reported as soon as possible to the police”.

 “And if you received that you should contact your nearest police station.”

According to police statement, the victims received an SMS stating that a SAPS case had been opened against them and that they had to contact a 'Constable Baloyi' at 060 800 8148.
