Sunday Sun reports that Lerato Kganyago ‘s New Billionaire Husband, Thami Ndlala, was arrested for fraud involving a Range Rover in 2013.
Thami reportedly used the name of another man, Thabo Thlopane, to buy the Range Rover.
At the time of the arrest, Thabo implicated Ndlala and said Ndlala had bought the Range Rover using his identity, and had paid him R6000 for the favour.
Thabo says Ndlala came to his workplace in 2013 and he gave Ndlala a payslip, ID copy and Proof of residence. Ndlala then used these documents to buy the Range Rover on credit.
At the time, Thabo said he had no idea what Thami was buying until he accompanied him to sign paperwork for the Range Rover at a dealership in Benoni.
On a monthly basis, Ndlala would transfer money into Thabo’a account, where Wesbank would collect the debit order.
The NPA has not yet made a decision to prosecute and both Thami and Thabo will appear in court again in July.
How Is this a Fraud
– It is illegal to misrepresent to a bank when making a purchase.
– If the car was involved in some illegal activity or had fines, the police would press charges against the two
– If the Range Rover was not paid for after purchase and Thabo then told the bank that he did not buy the car the bank would then report the fraud
