Ministry of Finance warns of fake facebook accounts

MINISTRY OF FINANCE WARNS OF FAKE FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS AND OTHER SCAMS

The Ministry of Finance would like to warn the public about a number of Facebook accounts which purport to be those of the Minister of Finance. These fake accounts are the latest attempt to con the public, both in South African and abroad, of their hard-earned money.

Last year, the Ministry warned the public about bogus letters or emails which purported to be from his office and those of other senior public officials.

The Ministry condemns the use of the Minister’s name and photographs, and reiterates that such scams can only succeed to the extent that members of the public have an unquenchable thirst for easy wealth.
