Sushi King (Kenny Kunene) as his populary known was almost a victim of fraud earlier last month. Kenny who is known for his flamboyant lifestyle almost lost some money.
According to reports, Kunene was making the payment on behalf of his brother, Neo. who received a performa invoice from a shipping engineering company for hydraulic cylinders.
“Neo received the purchase order from the Department of Tourism and an invoice from the shipping engineers, which looked genuine.
“As soon as the payment was done, he realised that the whole thing was fraudulent when he received information that the company does not exist but the payment was already done.
“The total amount of R83174.40 was transferred from the FNB account,” reads the statement.
The Sushi King refused to comment on anything related to the case;
“Even if I donate everything I have to charity, the media will find a reason to always write bad things about me,” Kunene said.
Police spokesman David Mothapo confirmed that a case of fraud was opened at the Sandton police station.
“We can confirm that it was indeed Mr Kunene who laid the charge.
“The matter is still under investigation and no arrests have been made as yet. We cannot confirm if the money was retrieved in time or not,” said Mothapo.
