Basetsana Kumalo took to social networks to warn fans not to fall for a weight loss scam that uses her picture in its advertisement. 

She also shared her experience on losing weight after giving birth to her third child by taking the decision to choose a healthier lifestyle which includes exercising and eating healthily.

She wrote: “It took me all of 18 months to lose weight after the birth of our third baby, nobody can lose 13kg in 1 month as the scam advert claims!”

This comes a year after Basetsana exposed a weight loss scam that used her name and pictures for advertising.

Hello Tweeps, Facebook and IG family, If it didn't involve people's health, I wouldn't give this disingenuous post on social media a second thought! I am firm advocate of making healthy lifestyle choices which include exercising and eating healthily! I have shared posts of my workouts and how I lost weight! It took me all of 18 months to lose weight after the birth of our third baby, nobody can lose 13kg in 1 month as the scam advert claims! The modus operandi of the local distributors is to use local public figures to push the product, if you are one the few that even receives it, after them taking your credit card details! They have done that in the US, UK, Canada and other countries. My legal team reported the scam to Facebook last year, when they used my persona and the scam was pulled off, and it has been reported again! Please don't be fooled and fall prey to this hoax! There are no shortcuts to sustainable healthy weight loss!!! Happy Wednesday!!!
