Residents and business owners are being targeted by a woman who is claiming to be collecting money for her 8 month old baby who needs to get a heart transplant.
This afternoon a woman who says she is Heleen Fourie came into True Technologies and managed to get the business to give her some money.
“She has a well rehearsed story about how her husband was a Policeman who died three days before the birth of their premature child.” said Tina Ekermans. “I had that little voice in the back of my mind warning me but only checked her NPO number online after she left.”
If this woman comes into your shop, please stall her and notify the Police and/or Tina at 042 2934168, as a case of fraud will be opened if she cannot prove that she has all the legal documentation.
