UCT professor Nomboniso Gasa recently received what she described as a strange deposit and prevented what she felt was a set-up thanks to swift action from her bank
Nomboniso Gasa has managed to thwart a possibly sticky situation for herself after her bank flagged a suspect R250 000 deposit into her account.
Thanking her bank for their protection she had encouraged followers to engage with their banks to avoid similar situations.
Taking to Twitter to warn others she tweeted that her bank had noticed the strange transaction, with a suspicious depositor and reference.
Her bank had made contact with her before allowing the deposit to go through to ask if she had been expecting it.
Luckily this led to her being able to avoid what she feels was an attempt to invite trouble into her life.
Gasa’s followers had revealed that they had also encountered similar situations and shared their story with the professor.
Members on the social media platform could not help but notice the similarities between her situation and journalist Pauli Van Wyk who had received a payment that caught the attention of the EFF leaders Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu.
Briefly.co.za reported yesterday that EFF MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi accused journalist Pauli Van Wyk of receiving payment for discrediting their deputy president.
However, it has since been disclosed that the payment had been an award payment to the journalist for her work in the field.
