Cup fraudster to be sentenced

2010-06-15 11:08

A man convicted of defrauding an American citizen of more than

R2 000 over the World Cup period will be sentenced in the Pretoria Magistrates

Court tonight.

The conviction of Johan Nel is the fifth case that has appeared in

the dedicated World Cup courts.

Nel was found guilty of pretending to own a car rental service and

“hiring” a car to Joseph McMaham.

The National Prosecuting Authority said: “The complainant deposited

an amount of R2 271 into the accused’s wife’s account to hire a car to travel

with to Mpumalanga province.

“The accused failed to deliver such vehicle as promised and it was

discovered through investigation that the accused did not own a car or a car

rental service.”
