Beware of this R99 scam
bedrog, scam

The Delft police are requesting the the community to report unauthorised R99 debit order transactions from their bank accounts.

There has been a number of social media reports of people complaining about these unauthorised debit orders, however, they have not laid charges with police.

“We urge victims to ensure that they report these incidents to the police so that we can ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book.

“We would like to warn people to take care of their banking details by not responding to any texts and emails that require identification details and bank pin codes,” says Delft police spokesperson Captain John Bartlett.

Bartlett offered to give the public a few tips to avoid becoming victim to the scam:

. never respond to emails or cellphone messages appearing to be from your bank, which requests your personal details;

. remember that no bank will ever ask you to confirm or update your account details by email;

. never provide your online ID, password or pin to anyone and never write them down or share them;

. do not save your internet banking password on your desktop;

. do not leave your computer unattended after you have entered your internet banking password and always log off or sign out at the end of a session;

. avoid doing internet banking in public areas such as internet cafes, or on any computer that can be accessed by people you do not know;

. change your pin and passwords frequently;

. put sensible transaction limits on your accounts;

. only provide your credit card details to reputable companies;

. if it looks too good to be true, it usually is;

. never send money or give credit card or online account details to anyone you do not know and trust.

Anyone who falls victim to crimes of the nature is urged to contact the Delft police on 021 954 9011.
