Your Family - - Money Smart -

If you re­ceive a pay­ment con­fir­ma­tion via SMS, call your bank to con­firm the trans­ac­tion is le­git­i­mate and the money has cleared – fraud­sters some­times send SMSS im­per­son­at­ing banks or cre­ate a fake proof of pay­ment. Al­ways ar­range to meet the buyer in per­son in a pub­lic space. Avoid deals with sell­ers who are not based in South Africa.
