JOBURG – The Southern African Fraud Prevention Services warn of a new scam using their name

The Southern African Fraud Prevention Services (SAFPS) has warned consumers about a number of fraudulent emails on false SAFPS letterheads, being circulated, offering victims of internet fraud and scams a reimbursement.

One such letter claims to reimburse victims with R5 million after the consumers are requested to submit their full name, address, age, occupation and mobile numbers to a contact email.

Unsuspecting consumers often reply and this provides the scammers with the opportunity to obtain more personal information for identity fraud and also convinces the customer to send money to cover fees, either for postage, bank exchange charges or other administrative costs to process the money.

The useless govt make laws like RICA and FICA which only inconvenience honest people.
Probably use the databases to spy on people as well.
