Dawn has distanced herself from this scam and made it clear that it’s not her.

"This has nothing to do with me, nor my foundation, the Sabc does not ever charge people to appear on Television. It is sad that people would stoop this low. Please do not fall for this scam. #ScamAlert #ScamAlert #scamalert #ScamAlert [sic]," she posted.
