A 29-year-old woman who misrepresented herself as a medical doctor in the Rossburgh area, in Durban, was arrested on Sunday.
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson, Colonel Thembeka Mbele, said a joint operation was conducted at Rossburgh on Sunday regarding a suspect that was sought for fraud.
She said the 29-year-old woman was arrested for fraud and will appear in the Durban Magistrates Court on Monday.
“It is alleged that since 2020, the suspect misrepresented herself as a medical doctor whilst she was a homeopathy practitioner.
“She is accused of completing PDP forms and charging people a fee of R200. The suspect was operating from an office situated near the licensing office in Rossburgh,” said Mbele.
She said a case of fraud was opened at Bellair SAPS and the docket was transferred to the Provincial Commercial Crime Investigation Unit for investigation.
