A Fin24 user was left disappointed after Capitec was unable to pay back money that was stolen from her account. Portia Mchunu writes:

"On the 22-12-16 I was working night shift and when I finished in the morning I noticed on my Capitec App that R100, R4 900 and R5 000 went out of my account."

She immediately went to the bank and was informed that the money was withdrawn in Durban by a Capitec card holder. An investigation ensued.
