LIMPOPO – The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation would like to warn the arrested suspects’ next of kin about people impersonating Hawks.
This comes after two people who identified themselves as Brigadier Tshabalala and Colonel Moretsi from the Hawks allegedly called Mogalakwena Municipality and demanded the contact details of the family members of the officials who were arrested by the Hawks on Monday.
As it happened in the past, these impersonators would call the family members of the accused and demand money for bail or promise to destroy the case against them.
We would like to put it on record that our members would not call and demand money for anything as we do not run a cash business. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the Hawks and demand money, know that you are about to be scammed. People are urged to immediately contact the nearest police station.
