Former cop appears for internet fraud
23 January 2020 | Crime
Ricardo Nestor appeared before Magistrate John Findano, while prosecutor Maggy Shiyagaya-Lotto represented the State.
It is alleged that Nestor hacked into the complainant's emails last October and replaced the victim's banking details with his own, which subsequently resulted in N$720 000 being paid into the accused's bank account. He allegedly also withdrew a portion of the stolen money and transferred it to a foreign financial institution in South Africa.
The complainant is Walvis Bay businessman Jose Do Santos Mansinho.
The crime allegedly took place between October and December 2019. The case was postponed to 5 March for further police investigation.
