Fake social media accounts in the name of the NCOP Chairperson

The Office of the Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces has noted with grave concern the mushrooming of fictitious social media accounts impersonating The Chairperson, Ms Thandi Modise.

The Office would like to put it on record that Mme Modise does not have any active social media accounts and all these fake accounts in her name have been reported to the various social media entities.

Some of these accounts are used in a scam that is aimed at defrauding unsuspecting people into donating money into a fraudulent “European Development Fund.” Others are claiming that The Chairperson will be able to connect them to “international funders.”

We urge the public and the media to remain vigilant and not to fall for these scams.
