- A young man recently headed online to share some screenshots of messages between himself and some scammers
- In the post, the person offers him SASSA grant cards in exchange for some cash but he does not take the bait, instead makes a joke about it
- Locals have had a lot to say about the post and were either laughing or condemning people who are scamming using SASSA cards
A young South African man recently headed online to share some screenshots of a conversation between himself and a SASSA card scammer. In the screenshots that were shared by the guy with the Twitter handle, @Ndi_Muvenda_, the scammer offers him a SASSA card in exchange for some cash.
Instead of falling for the scam, the young man tells the scammer to "help" his or her family first. He then goes on to call the scammer a chancer. Out of sheer curiosity, the young man also asks the scammer if the scam ever works out for them, to which they hilariously respond telling the man he is full of drama.
"This is how I decided to handle these scammers this morning," he captioned the snaps of the screenshots.
Locals had this to say about the strangely funny post:
"Does @OfficialSASSA and @The_DSD know about these scams? I am shocked."
"Well handled & Une drama"
"To think so many deserving people can't access grants cause SASSA has run out kante people are busy selling cards. South Africa alive with possibilities."
"Lazy fools with some shallow scams."
In other Briefly News scam stories, scammers never rest and sadly Boity Thulo has become a victim once again. The media personality always wants to help people when she can but some people just take advantage of her kindness.
A man with the Twitter handle @RichKatengeza was in Boity's mentions on social media asking if she could him get school shoes for his brother. Boity quickly responded and said that she would send him a direct message (DM) to offer assistance.
Social media users saw Boity's post and a few starting to warn her, telling the rapper that they've assisted the guy before and it doesn't make sense why he would ask for help again. Fans started sharing screenshots of conversations they've had with the guy and were not impressed.
