Scam alert – ISM R5000 share portfolio

ISM R5000 Share portfolio scam on the go again

It seems that an old scam is on the go again. I have just received a call from a company claiming to be called “ISM” and advising me that I had won a R5000 share portfolio. They needed to make an appointment to bring the money to me – urgently.

It sounded too good to be true,  so I started asking questions … like when I had entered and how they got my details. I also asked them to please send me an email with this information. At which point, the caller hung up.

A quick online search shows that this is a scam which resurfaces every now and then (2013, 2015 and now 2017). Watch out for it. It’s a scam!

  1. Seems like the scam is back! I have just received a call from “Capitalone” saying I have just won R5000 in shares, and can they drop them off tomorrow. When I told her to call me back tomorrow, after I investigate the validity of this prize, she bluntly said to me “OK suite yourself”, and slammed the phone down. Don’t think she is gonna call back tomorrow though… Whatever!
