Watch out for money scams Charity Moyo charity@tametimes.co.za Vosloorus Police Station officers have warned the community to be careful when withdrawing money at ATM machines due to a number of cash robberies reported at the police station recently. In a recent incident, Jenette Nhlapho, a resident of Vlakplaas in Vosloorus, was robbed of R18 000 at Chris Hani Mall. “I was accompanied by my brother to withdraw money from the bank at the mall. We left the bank and I put the money in my bag. On our way out of the mall premises I noticed a woman who was also inside the bank picking up some bank notes and there was a lot of money on the ground. She asked us to help her pick the money up so that we could share it. We helped her and she directed us to an open space next to the mall where we were going to share the money.

On arrival at the open space before counting the money, we saw three men arrive. They told us that they were police officers and showed us their identity cards. They accused us of stealing the money. They tied us up with a rope, took the money from inside my bag and the money that we picked up, and ran away with the woman,” said Nhlapho. She reported the incident at the Vosloorus Police Station and a case of common robbery was opened. Speaking to tame TIMES, Captain Piet Rossouw, Communications Officer of Vosloorus Police Station said, “There are syndicates that are targetting clients withdrawing cash from ATMs, banks or money outlets. The syndicates are operating mostly at the malls, targetting unsuspecting shoppers. The community should be aware of fraudsters waiting to defraud them at the malls,” He added, “A member of the syndi-

cate will walk past an unsuspecting person who recently withdrew cash and drop a bundle of money. A second member of the syndicate, who will also “witness” the money that has been dropped, will approach the unsuspecting person or shopper who recently withdrew cash and show the person the “abandoned” bundle of cash on the ground. The syndicate member will then convince the unsuspecting person to follow him quickly to a hidden spot to share the “abandoned” cash. As soon as they reach a hidden spot, fellow syndicate members will pounce and rob the unsuspecting person of his or her money drawn from the ATM,” explained Rossouw. He said people should be alert and conscious of the surroundings when using the ATM machine or at the bank. Rossouw said they should never trust a stranger with their Jenette Nhlapho is the latest victim of a bank syndicate operating at money. the local malls. *Photo taken by Happy Khumalo.

Despite the uphill battles associated with a lot of marriages, wedding day experiences are the reason that inspired Chantel Gamble to establish a Bridal Dreamm Shop based in Alberton. “I have tried a lot of business ventures after I retired from my previous work but with no success.

years ago. I decided to redirect my energy on selling wedding gowns,” said Gamble.

Sarah Simelani, educator at the school was touched by the plight of learners without proper school shoes and went the extra mile to seek help from the Akane Magaza Society. “I noticed that the grade

FIFA World Cup is upon us

African teams ready to cause upset in Brazil 2014 Fifa World Cup.

Lebo Mosolodi lebo.kathorus@tametimes.co.za

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is starting today, 32 teams have converged at the greatest football stage in Brazil to fight for the ultimate football crown. Football spectators are looking forward to see who will emerge as the greatest soccer star in this tournament between Portugal dribbling wizard Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina goal scoring machine Lionel Messi. However, that should not reduce the competition five time champions Brazil and the influential role to be played by their rising star Neymar. The host nation dubs the tournament Neimar’s perfect platform to introduce himself as one of the lethal Brazilian striker who could emulate Pele and Ronaldo. All eyes are watching the English team, and the fans are optimistic that they surpass their previous FIFA World Cup mediocre record. Hopes of their resurrection from being an average team to be counted amongst the football giants, is solely placed on the shoulders of the inform Steven Gerald. The Liverpool captain pinpointing passes from the heart of the pitch would find their lethal striker Wayne Roonie equal to the task of finishing off work already done. The English supporters hope that the Manches-

ter United prolific striker has brought his lucky goal scoring boots in this tournament. Other tournament dark horse soccer pundits are looking at the four time FIFA World Cup Champions, Italy. They can outperform any team in the tournament if opponents allow Andrea Pirlo to spray tantalising passes from the heart of the pitch. Ivory Coast hopes are placed squarely on the shoulders of Manchester City’s Yaya Toure and Dieder Drogba. The Ivory Coast golden generation of stars are the dream team for any coach in the African continent but they have failed to deliver on pitch so far. Soccer experts believe that Ivory Coast is the only African side which could make Pele’s (soccer legend) dream of seeing an African team winning this prestigious cup in this tournament a reality. Current African Champions Nigeria under the leadership of Stephen “The Boss” Keshi are expected to cause upset in this tournament. They have shown no respect to their opponents lately and play a beautiful soccer. The Ghanaians are ready to remedy the upset caused by Lewis Suarez stoppage of a goal bound ball which prevented them from reaching the semi final stage of the 2010 World Cup.
