The case against 54 alleged members of a cyber-crime syndicate will be heard by the Nigel Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

They allegedly stole at least R15 million through various phishing scams, and face charges of fraud, theft, money laundering and racketeering.

On Sunday, the Hawks said the group could have international links.

“It is big, very big, and we suspect that they have links to other crime families operating in other countries,” Captain Oscar Mopedi told the City Press newspaper.
