A Limpopo man has been arrested after he allegedly scammed people out of thousands of rand while pretending to be a police captain in 2019

The 28-year-old was arrested at a park in Seshego, Polokwane on Friday after several cases of fraud were opened by his victims.

"The imposter allegedly pretended to be a police captain from the provincial human resource management. He would then call unsuspecting people who wanted to be enlisted in the SAPS to deposit a certain amount of money into various accounts for medical reports," said police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

Ngoepe said: He would thereafter instruct them to take the receipt to the recruitment office as proof of payment. When people went to the recruitment office, they found out they had been scammed.
