TWO male waiters, one of them a Zimbabwean accused of skimming patrons’ bank cards and related fraudulent activities are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Asanda Oxley Jadi, 26, and Tafadzwa Felex Madziwadondo, 22, face charges of Contravention of the Electronic Communication Act.
On June 11, at about 4.30pm a patron witnessed Jadi allegedly skimming a customer’s credit card at a Yacht Club in Table Bay Harbour. Police were called and they found Jadi in possession of an unauthorised point of sale device (used to compromise bank card data), culminating in his arrest.
In the other case, Madziwadondo – a waiter at a restaurant on Racecourse Road in Milnerton – stands accused of Card Not Present Fraud.
It is alleged that Madziwadondo committed acts of fraud from January to June 2016, affecting several customers from all of the major banks. – ANA
