CHRIS HANI – Commercial Crime investigating Unit is investigating a number of fraud cases after unsuspected buyers were scammed while trying to buy livestock advertised on social media.
According to the information from the complainants there was a fraudulent Facebook page advertising livestock using Langside Farm situated at Queenstown.
