"Get rich or die trying tactic gone wrong. This guy is getting praised on social media platforms

One thing that is certain is that Africans are creative. They always come up with plans to make money. What is sad is that some of them like get-rich-quick-schemes. Many of them are already behind bars for defrauding innocent people of their hard earned cash and valuables. Whatever we would love to believe, there really is no quick way to get rich. Wealth is generated by hard work and good investment over a long period of time.

Amos Molatudi who is only 35 years old does not believe in working hard and good investments. Many people are praising him left right and centre for what he did recently. He sent an email to Hawks officials using a fake High Court order and a fake letter from the Presidency and stated in the email that one of the vehicles that were seized from Sam Holdings should be released to him, but he got caught. Now the officials believe he is mentally unstable. Amos has been convicted and referred to Weskoppies mental institution.

There is a saying that says you reap what you sow. He is definitely reaping the rewards of what he sowed.

The COVID-19 pandemic has stifled many sectors of the global economy. But it has apparently boosted the business of fraudsters. Some fraudsters have taken advantage of the new opportunities of the pandemic economy and that they seem to become ever more sophisticated in their methods. At the same time anti-fraud measures are becoming more sophisticated too, with technology playing a big part, and more increasingly artificial intelligence.

Fraud and scams are intimate crimes that can be deeply distressing, but there are professionals and organisations who can assist with the emotional turmoil. Many therapists and counsellors in private practice in South Africa are well equipped to assist victims of all types of crime.

Getting everything back after you've been scammed or swindled is difficult, but knowing how to act in the aftermath is vital.

Personal characteristics of fraudsters :

• They are living beyond their means.

• Overwhelming desire for personal gain.

• High personal debt.

• A close association with customers.

• Feeling that their compensation is insufficient.

• A wheeler-dealer attitude.

• They feel like it is a challenge for them to beat the system.
