Scam Alert in Mpumalanga
Tuesday, 12 February 2019: It has come to the attention of the Eskom Development Foundation that an unknown caller is calling Eskom’s previously-funded projects in Mpumalanga.
The unknown caller claims that he is from Eskom in Centurion and claims that Eskom has received minibus taxis from another donor.
The caller then alleges that Eskom is donating these minibus taxis to previously-funded projects.  The Eskom previously-funded project are informed that they first need to pay insurance money over for these minibus taxis before they can receive their minibus taxis.
Eskom wishes to alert its previously-funded projects and members of the public that this is a scam and that they should be wary of these types of calls wherein the victims are promised a benefit for a small upfront payment. 
We advise the projects not to engage any further.
