Beware, scammers in town

2015-06-03 06:00

THREE scammers have been operating in Greytown over the past week as the vehicle-remote jammer operators are back in town. Please, when you lock your vehicle double check that it is locked.

Many warnings have been issued about individuals operating out of Pietermaritzburg­, who claim to be associated with Eskom­ saying they can provide a service which will save you money every month.

Lately they have been operating in Greytown - somehow they have obtained­ a list of pensioners and are targeting them. They also make use of names of Umvoti­ Municipal personnel. If you are contacted, ignore - it will cost you money.

An individual has been selling “fresh fruit from the Cape” claiming the truck is just around the corner and all you need to do is and#034;just open your gate and come and seeand#034;.

Please do not - there is no truck and this a scam to gain entrance to your property
