She allegedly went into a bank with a senior citizen (age unknown) who withdrew R21 800 from her bank account.

“The woman fell victim to a scam where all her money was taken,” says Ramphora.

Her robbers allegedly drove around with her for quite a while before they dropped her off at an unknown location and fled the scene with the cash.

Ramphora says the robbers also took the victim’s bank card and her ID.
