A standard bank officer used duplicate cards to steal R1.3m from the customer



A 47-year-old banker in Limpop was in court Thursday after he was arrested by a serious Hawks investigation unit.

The woman was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly cheating the client's bank R1.3m, says Captain Matimba Maluleke.

He works at Standard Bank in Musina, Limpopo.

Maluleke said the fraudster "allegedly attacked the client's bank account earlier this month and fraudulently transferred the money to other fictitious accounts from which its syndicate members would have withdrawn."

The Hawks survey showed that the consultant allegedly approved replicated bank cards with a valid PIN code on the victim's account. This has allowed looting to be displayed as if the client had made transactions.

The suspect should have attended the Musina court on Thursday and will probably face charges of fraud, money laundering and violations of the Electronic Communications Act and transactions.

"Other pledges can not be ruled out because the investigations continue," Maluleke said.
