Fake US dollars land forex dealer in soup

A HARARE illegal forex dealer was yesterday hauled to court to answer fraud charges after she allegedly gave her customers fake US dollar notes.
Memory Muchemwa, 34, was not asked to plead when she appeared before Harare magistrate Yeukai Chigodora, who released her on $10 000 bail.

She was remanded to appear in court on March 15.

Allegations are that on November 28, 2021, the first complainant, Dorothy Inusa, transferred $10000 to a number supplied by Muchemwa, who then gave her a fake US$50 note, and went away.

She then allegedly also duped Bonongwe Zhebio, who sent $11500, and got a fake US$50 note, in return.

A number of people are being duped by illegal forex dealers, especially at Eastgate Mall in Harare, with fake United States dollar notes being exchanged.

Thomas Chanakira appeared for the State.
