Radio DJ Thando Thabethe took to Twitter to share a tale of how scammers tried to get money out of her.
So someone just tried to scam me ..(pt1)
Called my manager claiming to be Ace Magashule needing to speak to me directly and urgently ..(pt2)
And as freelancers work comes from everywhere and everywhere so he gives me his no. I call back...he claims there's a girl stranded (pt4)
Says he has called Basetsana Khumalo who says she is out of town & advised him to call me for assistance 😏 pt5
Basically says this girl need petrol money and that I should Ewallet as the money he sent her is not reflecting ...pt6
Girls calls "panting and in a panicking" ...then I think to myself WHY would the premier call ME of all ppl to ask for money 😏 pt7
In her final tweet she warns her followers to be weary of scammers and to be vigilant.
Anyway be careful out there...this also makes it so hard to discern the fake from the ppl who really need assistance
