Fraud

WARNING: Don't Respond To This Number, This Is What They Do.

BE VIGILANT, DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO SCAMMERS

The past week, Pastor Gerhard and Pastor Retha Swart of Standerton, their names were used in a scammer's attempt to defraud people of money. The scammer began in his message telling the unsuspected victim that he is Pastor Gerhard and he wants to ask them something. The scammer added that it must stay confidential and that he would like to borrow some money.


He eloquently added he is prepared to pay interest on the loan. Not recognising the number the person immediately contact Pastor Gerhard whereby he confirmed that it is definitely not him asking for money. In such an event when you receive messages to this effect, rather make personal contact with the person. When the number was entered on True Caller it came back as "Steel money".


South African citizens are urged to be careful and not fall victim to the scam.
