R1m air-time crime
If you've bought blank cellphone airtime vouchers or vouchers with erroneous pin numbers, report it to the police
Two people have been arrested in Pretoria West for selling counterfeit airtime vouchers, Gauteng police said.
Police were tipped off about a shop selling fake airtime vouchers, Captain Pinky Tsinyane said.
When police investigated, they found R1 million worth of blank airtime vouchers.
They confiscated computer equipment and a printer used to produce the vouchers, which bore the logos of various cellular networks.
Two foreigners, aged 24 and 29, were arrested and would appear in court soon.
“Police are advising all members of the public who also bought blank vouchers or vouchers with [erroneous] pin numbers to report the matter to the police,” Tsinyane said.
