‘Sassa SMS’ fake

2017-11-29 06:00

Sassa has issued a warning to beneficiaries to ignore fake SMSs from people claiming to be Sassa officials.

The SMS reads: “Dear Sassa client, you are selected in our Christmas draw 10 out of 100 clients can win R1 500 that will be in your account the 1st December 2017. Please ­urgently reply/sms to enter in the draw your ID no, last 4 digits of card no & your pin. Lucky Christmas draw.”

Call Sassa on 080-060-1011 if offered something that sounds too good to be true.

Sassa’s mandate is limited to paying social grants.
