The Hawks in KwaZulu-Natal are trying to track down Brendan Mark Pillay, who they say masqueraded as a tax consultant.

They say a businessman hired him in April 2015 and put him in charge of the tax affairs of his business.

The businessman then received a letter from SARS saying he owed R70 million.

Police say Pillay disappeared instead of resolving the issue.

The businessman opened a case of fraud against him in 2017.

Police are asking anyone who knows Pillay's whereabouts to help with the investigation.

They have released a photo of the suspect.
