The company urges customers to delete the scam messages en emails and not respond to them at all.
“We urge consumers not to fall prey to these hoax SMSs and e-mails and not to provide any personal or banking details in response to these SMS and e-mail messages” stated Dr Michelle Potgieter, marketing and communications director for LGESA.
“This communication is not generated by LGESA. It is a hoax and a scam intended to abuse the credibility of LGESA with the intention of fraudulently obtaining highly confidential information from the recipient of the communication.”
