I received a request from Naspers asking me to trade on its online trading platform for lucrative return on my investment, is this true?
The Naspers Group has been made aware of a scam targeting members of the South African public. Victims of the scam will receive an eBook, via social media channels such as WhatsApp and Telegram, which describes Naspers as “a registered online trading platform”.
 
As part of the scam, fraudsters allege that targeted recipients will be assigned a trade broker who will trade on their behalf if they deposit cash into a third-party account. The returns promised are very enticing – for example, a 100% return on investment in an hour. Once money is transferred into the account, the funds disappear.
 
Naspers urges the public to always use extreme caution when receiving calls, text messages or emails from an unknown source, particularly when they include requests to part with money. Phishing emails, texts and calls can be very convincing, with company logos and banners copied from websites.
 
Importantly, Naspers is not a trading platform. The company has a primary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (NPN.SJ) and a secondary listing on the A2X Exchange (NPN.AJ) in South Africa and has American Depositary Receipts (ADR) trading on an over-the-counter basis in the United States (NPSNY). The ADRs are listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: NPSN).  Should you wish to invest in the stock market please visit https://www.jse.co.za/grow-my-wealth or https://www.a2x.co.za/a2x-approved-brokers/ or www.globalbuydirect.com to find out more. 

Tips to avoid becoming a victim of a phishing scam:
