'Healers' defraud KZN woman

2011-12-01 11:30

Durban - Two men posing as traditional healers allegedly conned a woman out of thousands of rands in Verulam, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said the two Malawian men told a woman last month she had bad luck and they had to perform rituals to rid her of it.

Mdunge said the men told her she should resign from her job and withdraw all the money she had in her bank accounts. They told her to give them the money, so they could "multiply" it for her.

"The men subsequently disappeared and so did hundreds of thousands of rands of her money," he said.

Mdunge could not give an exact figure.

Police were still searching for the men.

    Yep. Stupidity is an expensive commodity. Maybe it's time she takes a leap into the 21st century. Her "luck" might change. Oh, sorry she gave that to the Malawians.

  • Preggy - 2011-12-01 15:03

    This is only one of the idiots you have heard of. There are plenty in Durban, especially Indians (BTW I am Indian). These halfwits sometimes lose millions trying to double and treble their hard earned money! Nothing is achieved easily, it's through sheer hard work and perseverance. Well if you are a comrade, different story altogether! Don't fall for these con artists people, grow up and get educated! You are the captain of your own ship. Don't blame your mishaps and misfortunes on bad luck or other people!
