Naspers warns public of scams

Naspers has been made aware of scams targeting members of the South African public, where the scammers are impersonating Naspers or pretending to be affiliated with Naspers.

The scammers are using messaging apps or websites to spread false information to trick people out of their money, promising high returns, often within hours of investing, if people put money into the scammers’ bank accounts. 

We urge you to be very cautious if you receive calls, text messages or emails from unknown people, particularly when you are asked to pay money. Naspers will never do this.
