Woman loses money to suspected fraudulent couple

Woman loses money to suspected fraudulent couple

Story by Fungai Jachi, Courts Reporter

A Harare woman was left counting her losses after she was duped by a suspected fraudulent couple in a botched money transfer deal.

46-year-old Grace Tagwireyi Mandishara and Daniel Azangwe aged 54, made their initial appearance before a Harare magistrate charged with defrauding the woman of ZW$60 million.

The couple allegedly misrepresented to the complainant that they could facilitate for US$6 000 in exchange for Zimbabwe dollars.

The court heard that they gave the complainant account numbers where she could deposit 60 million Zimbabwe dollars, but the two allegedly failed to keep their end of the deal.

The two accused persons allegedly became evasive, with the complainant realising she had been duped.

The couple was released on US$100 bail each.

Meanwhile, two suspected car thieves, Carrington Nhliziywana, aged 38 and Phillip Chigusira aged 29, appeared in court on charges of theft of a motor vehicle.

The pair allegedly used duplicate keys to steal a car that was parked at the complainant’s house.

The complainant alerted the police when he saw the two accused persons with his car in Graniteside, leading to the arrest of the pair and recovery of the vehicle.

The duo was remanded in custody pending trial.
