It has come to our attention that a new call and SMS scam is currently circulating misleading recipients to make a donation towards the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (NMCF).
It starts with a call from a number identified as 073 0385 604 that has the background sounds of a call centre. The agent falsely claims that they are: “…Working for MTN and in collaboration with NMCF in celebrating the Nelson Mandela 100 years.” The false agent further claims that the person: “…has won R25000 from Standard Bank and a grocery voucher form Shoprite/Checkers but to claim the prizes they first need to register as a donor to NMCF, choosing and amount between R1400 - R3800. This has to be sent via your banking app send money function” using a pin that the agent supplies.
Another scam has been found from the following number: 073 947 2942 stating:
“Congrats!! MTN user [Name] MTN has rewarded you with a Sumsang GLX S10,Sumsang double door fridge 660L with water&ice despensor and R30,000 in cash for today's day.for more info visit www.mtnmyrewards.co.za TnC's apply”

The following details are where the account details are deposited:
Nedbank: Account holder: Patrick, Account Number: 5898461106769407, Account type: NEDCARD, Bank name: Nedbank, Branch code: 198765
Please do not answer this call or respond to any request along these lines. NMCF is not running any campaign of this nature at the moment. To verify what fundraising campaigns, both NMCF and the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital (NMCH) are running, our supporters are urged to constantly check our websites – NMCF: https://www.nelsonmandelachildrensfund.com/ and NMCH: https://www.nelsonmandelachildrenshospital.org/ or our social media platforms.

Another scam phone number 0787914341. It happened to me today. All the things promised above are the same ones. Be careful guys. My son listened to my conversation and said "that's a scam mom, drop the call" I did although my mind was reluctant to do so. Thanks Lord🙌

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: email@example.com

I was able to recover my hard earned funds/cryptos with the help of a private/certified hacker, He was able to trace and recover my investment from a fake trading platform which I invested almost $197,000.00 that almost ruined my life because my wife left me after I lost everything because of my foolishness after she warned me severally. Thank
