Centurion residents, including those in Southdown, Midrand, and the surrounding areas, are being warned to be on the lookout for a woman who has been using her car to scam people.
The scammer, who is now avoiding the Midstream area due to increased awareness among residents, has been repeatedly running out of fuel approximately ten times a day in various parts of Pretoria.
The goal of this trick is to get money from people who are kind-hearted.
Each time the scammer approaches someone, she presents a different reason for needing financial assistance. As part of her scheme, she prominently displays a plastic jar, which serves as a prop to garner sympathy and prompt people to stop and offer help.
Centurion residents are growing frustrated with this ongoing scam and are warning others to be cautious.
People who don’t know what’s going on and fall for the scammer’s tricks could end up losing money because of her actions.
