Soap Scam Five Arrested
By Earl
After an official in the Johannesburg Post Office noticed thousands of envelopes coming in for a fictitious address, she notified police, whose investigation led to the arrest of five men now accused of selling a “muti”, or “magic medicine” made of soap, mixed herbs, and petroleum jelly, which was supposed to help people win South Africa’s national lottery, the Lotto. A luck charm made to win the lottery could probably be no more false than this, and the confidence gang are also accused of having operated several 'get rich quick' scams in 2000.

Allegedly, the suspects piled away about R5-million (US $441,109). A search of one suspect’s home revealed postal box keys, piles of letters, and documents detailing the operation of their business.
