SASSA Warns Against Fake Grant
The South African Social Security Agency is warning beneficiaries and applicants against providing their personal information to fraudsters posing as SASSA and offering fake grants to vulnerable citizens.
The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has recently made beneficiaries aware of a fake grant application making its rounds on social media. SASSA provides financial assistance in the form of social grants to those who are vulnerable to poverty and in need of state support.
Fraudsters prey on this vulnerability and have now been sharing a link which encourages people to register to receive a "R700 Fund Grant" from SASSA.
SASSA has clarified that this is fake and not associated with SASSA at all. SASSA Applicants and beneficiaries are urged not to click on the link, fill in their personal information or share the link with others.
The Special Covid-19 R350 SRD grant has come to an end and many beneficiaries would be tempted to apply for fake grants in hopes to receive financial aid again. However, they are encouraged to only apply for the grants on the official SASSA website, as they risk sharing confidential information with scammers who may use it for other criminal reasons.
The public is encouraged to report cases of corruption to the anti-corruption hotline on 0800 43 43 73.
