DJ Zinhle’s boyfriend Brendon Naidoo has been hogging the headlines for all the wrong reasons recently following a case of fraud opened against him.
At first, it looked like the case could be solved by a mere dialogue between him and his accusers. Nevertheless, a report on Sunday World paper confirmed that the Gauteng police have arrested Brendon.
Brendon who was arrested over the weekend, will be appearing in court on Monday. Police spokesman Constable David Mothapo confirmed that the hunky businessman would be facing fraud charges in court.
The popular DJ’s boyfriend was arrested in connection with multiple cases of fraud. The charges were brought against him by people claiming that he conned them of millions of rands in a foreign exchange trading scheme.
Zinhle’s man allegedly scammed his accusers of as much as R15-million. He apparently convinced them to allow him to invest their cash in forex trade to make profits.
However, when it was time to withdraw the profits from the deal, he started telling stories. One of the accusers, Rustenburg businessman Thapelo Tshepe said he transferred about R3-million into Naidoo’s bank account in 2014. He alleged that Naidoo persuaded him to do so in order to make profits.
“Naidoo approached me back in 2014 and told me we could make money with forex trading. He convinced me with bank statements and showed me how much profit he made from forex trading.
“Brendon sent me a picture of himself posing next to an Audi R8, claiming he had just bought it cash with the proceeds from forex trading. I was convinced and sent him another R1 million,” he said.
Tshepe was convinced that everything would work out fine as he saw enough evidence to convince him that the deal was real.
Another businessman said he invested about R2.5-million last year but never received any profit from Naidoo. DJ Zinhle’s boyfriend has remained mum on the issue.
