Cops warn against stokvel scam!


A NEW stokvel on a social network is said to be a scam.

People across Mzansi have been depositing their money into strangers’ bank accounts after joining the WhatsApp stokvel called Helper’s Joined, which is run by a woman only known as MaDlomo.

A woman who lost money to the stokvel but didn’t want to be named told Daily Sun recently that when you joined you pledge between R500 and R1 500.

You are then paired with an old member, who you pay the finance to. However, during the next round of pledging you will receive your money back plus 50% from a new pledger.

“I was introduced to the group by a friend. On Thursday I paid R1 000 to a member expecting to get R1 500 back the next afternoon. However, when the second round of pledging started I was not put on the list of receivers,” she said.

“I started asking questions and I was removed from the group. MaDlomo later started a new group and blocked me from it. For the group to grow larger we are required to recruit new members. I recruited a friend and she is now angry with me because she never got her money back.”

Gauteng police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubela warned people against quick cash schemes. “If they suspect it’s a scam they must report it to the police so it can be investigated,” he said.

When the SunTeam asked MaDlomo whether the stokvel was registered as a financial service provider, she said no.

“I am aware of the lady. Just because things didn’t go her way she decided to go to the media,” she said.

The catch is the editor wants you to write about. the 12 different types of computer programing languages. And the 12 different types of computer tasks.. And the 12 different types of computer programmers.. . Before you get your first check the editor wants 3 lists of 12 types.. . So have a slice of wonder bread (builds strong bodies twelve ways) and. make a list of the 12 different types of computer programmers.. . Note: the other two lists are posted as similar, but separate questions..
