An East Rand couple appeared in the Edenvale Magistrate’s Court after allegedly master-minding an adoption scam.
Jennie-Lee Greyling (27) and her boyfriend, JP Beyleveld, (27) were released on bail of R1500 each after they appeared in court yesterday on charges, including theft.
Greyling allegedly cheated a childless couple out of thousands of rands and conned them into thinking she could help them adopt twin boys.
The couple, Hennie and Adel van Blerk, found out on Thursday they had been scammed, and that the twins did not exist.
Police said they were also looking for another man, Shauwn van der Mescht, to help them with their investigation.
He was one of Greyling’s colleagues at a charitable organisation in Edenvale.
The case was postponed to November 7.
