It has come to the attention of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (the Fund), that there is a false campaign soliciting donations on behalf of the Fund. The method of solicitation utilises various communication platforms such as phone calls, SMS and/or WhatsApp text messages.
Please be aware that the syndicate associated with this scam will request money from unsuspecting citizens by inviting them to apply for cellphone contracts through PEP stores. In addition, there will be a follow up request through a text message to deposit money into a dedicated account that falsely links to the Fund in a form of a donation.
The Fund has not partnered with PEP stores or any cellular network providers in a fundraising campaign. This method of engaging stakeholders and soliciting donations is false and not in line with the Fund's values. We ask the public to be vigilant and not to fall victim of this vicious scam.
