SHE IS A SERIAL THIEF, RUN IF YOU SEE HER !
A serial thief,Neria Gatsi (22), of Mucheke B in Masvingo has became a menace.She recently appeared before Magistrate Peter Madiba after emptying money from a neighbour’s EcoCash account .
The renowned guru in electronic transfer theft stole $20 from Millicent Chapwanya’s EcoCash when she was supposed to repay the latter $10 that she owed her.
The Court heard that Chapwanya is said to have asked Gatsi to return $10 that she owed her but she told the complainant that she did not have a mobile cell phone from which to transfer the money through EcoCash.
The innocent Chapwanya gave her debtor her cellphone to conduct the transaction little did she know that she had drawn herself into trickery.
Taking advantage of her knowledge of the former’s EcoCash pin number, Gatsi transferred $20 into her account and then transferred back $10 into Chapwanya’s account.
Gatsi deleted the message confirming that she had transferred $20 from Chapwanya’s account.
It has been Gatsi’s norm to steal money through Ecocash. She again appeared before the court after stealing from the same complainant in 2016. She withdrew $170 after she stole her bank card and went to Pick ‘n’ Pay and bought groceries worth $50 and got $120 cash back.
The accused pleaded guilty before the court and was given community service.
