Report Card: FNB Heists

In February, First National Bank saw several vaults raided by thieves who made off with assets worth hundreds of millions of rands. With FNB offering to settle, this week Carte Blanche looks to see how the bank plans to reimburse some of the victims and if the Hawks are any closer to shutting down the syndicate. Produced by Sasha Schwendenwein with research from Sinethemba Nogude and presented by Derek Watts.  

Transport Crook

Pulling deals and outsourcing subcontractors to do the work while the money is pocketed, and disappearing without paying seems like an easy con.  This is how one man in the transport industry got away with stealing millions. Carte Blanche tracks the scammer down to find out more. Produced by Nicky Troll and presented by Devi Sankaree Govender
