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!
