Former Police Officer in Fake USD Notes Scam!
A FORMER police officer was yesterday beaten by a mob after reportedly giving pedestrians fake money in an illegal forex deal.
The illegal money changer, who was only identified as Kudakwashe, told H-Metro that he has been surviving on trading fake notes.
The incident occurred along Sam Nujoma Street.
His luck ran out after giving his client — believed to be a member of a security agency — fake R600.
He was saved from further beating by a passing police officer.
“I gave him fake R600 but I have since returned the United States dollars he gave me,” said Kudakwashe.
“I am sorry for this and I have been doing this as a means of survival,” he said while begging for mercy from the mob.
Kudakwashe’s victim convinced a police officer to take him to his office along Nelson Mandela Avenue instead of a police station presumably for further bashing. The victim later returned to the scene.
“Tamusiya uko tazoziva kuti aitombove mupurisa akabuditswa basa,” said the victim refusing to answer further questions.
A number of people have been losing their hard earned money through engaging in illegal foreign currency deals. Police have been raiding a number of illegal foreign currency dealers but their efforts have failed to weed them off street corners.
