RAF arrest syndicates reported to have defrauded the agency R12m!

The RAF Forensics Investigations Department (FID) has investigated allegations of several false motor vehicle accident claims in the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal since 2010. This has resulted in several arrests by the South African Police Service in recent weeks of a number of suspects, including doctors, policemen and a tout, who worked in collusion with fake claimants to scam the Fund.

The suspects have appeared in the South Coast Regional Court and the case has been postponed until 5 May for further investigation.

Dr Watson said the Fund’s message to fraudsters was clear: “You’ll be caught – it’s just a matter of time.”

Fraud and corruption was a major challenge facing the organisation and Dr Watson appealed to everyone to report suspected fraudulent activities – including those involving staff – to the Fraud Hotline on 0800 005 919.
