Westville police dispel detergent scam rumours

WESTVILLE police have confirmed that a warning against Abomama products is false and residents should not be alarmed.
According to a post that went viral earlier this week, three men travelling in a red Golf 2 around the Westville area were seen selling household detergent products. It is suggested that these products contain a substance which causes residents to lose consciousness while the men conduct a demonstration of their products. The men are then said to ransack the home.
This is the Whatsapp post that is doing its rounds.
Capt Elizabeth Squires, communications officer at Westville SAPS said: “I have spoken to our crime intelligence officer regarding the Abomama products and he confirmed this is false.”
