A SHOP in Durban’s central business district was raided yesterday morning for allegedly selling fake matric certificates. Customers could allegedly buy a certificate for between R300 and R500. Durban Central Cluster Commander General Bala Naidoo said they confiscated several computer towers, laptops and storage devices and arrested two Nigerian nationals. “The fake certificates looked very real. We are extremely concerned that such an operation was under way with the matric results expected to be released soon. They were also making driver’s licences. The evidence has been handed to our cyber crime unit to see what else they were doing at the store,” said Naidoo. The arrests were the culmination of a week-long operation. The business, next to China City (formerly The Wheel) is believed to have invested significantly in the illegal operation. The suspects will appear before the Durban Magistrate’s Court on January 2.
