Investors who have been promised trucks and contracts by a trucking company have been left shattered after realising their money has gone down the drain.
Sowetan exposed the get- rich scheme again yesterday. We reported that a number of people have been conned by this company. Invariably all the victims are black.
Investors conned into the scheme comprise mainly retired couples whose aim is obviously to procure a self-sufficient future.
Their aspirations, however, have been destroyed and their life savings depleted by this company's false promises.
These lies place a cruel face on the government's black economic empowerment principle.
The victims must lay charges of fraud or theft so the police can move swiftly to probe this unscrupulous firm.
