Stokvel members warned of cash crimes following arrest of Jeffreys Bay woman for theft.

Eastern Cape: Jeffreys Bay police advised stokvel members to use electronic banking methods or to individually deposit their monthly contributions to the club account instead of giving a club treasurer or one member to deposit collected contributions at once.

This follows an incident where police nabbed a 38-year-old woman (stokvel member) of theft at Jeffreys Bay today. It is believed that a suspect failed to deposit monthly members’ contributions into the club account for a year.
