The Hawks welcomed a sentence of a 60-year-old woman at the Bellville Specialised Crimes Court.

The Hawks have welcomed the conviction of a 60-year-old woman for theft, forgery and uttering by the Bellville Specialised Crimes Court.

From 2012 to 2017, Virginia Dawn Wilscot used false information about her registration as a registered agent to purchase cars and homes at auction.
She gave fake and altered documents to her victims regarding properties and vehicles that were set for auction.

Hawks spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Siyabulela Vukubi, says the victims paid her for services she never delivered.

“The accused presented the victims with fictitious rock up documents of house and vehicles that were supposed to be auctioned. They made payments to the bank account of the accused for the services that were never delivered. The victims suffered a loss to the amount of R3 million. The matter was reported to the Hawks' Bellville based Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team for probing. Wilscot was subsequently found guilty on 20  counts of fraud, one count of theft and eight counts of forgery and uttering. She has been an awaiting trial prisoner since September 2017. The matter is postponed to 12 April 2024 for sentencing.” Said , Lieutenant Colonel Siyabulela Vukubi
