Rikhotso said Molosiwa also used the same method to scam another unsuspecting victim in December 2013.
“After the potential buyer transferred an amount of R294,000 which was the purchase price of another property in Montshiwa, she allegedly only transferred R100,000 to the seller and kept the balance for herself,” Rikhotso said.
In May 2014, Molosiwa defrauded yet another buyer who had transferred R350,000 to purchase a house.
The three counts of fraud were investigated by the Hawks’ serious commercial crime investigation unit which found the accused was not registered with the Estate Agency Affairs Board.
She was summonsed to appear before court in February 2019 and was released on R2,000 bail.
Molosiwa was sentenced to three years each for the first two counts of fraud and five years for the third fraud count.
The first two counts will be served concurrently with the five-year sentence.
