Invest your money wisely
You work hard for your money – make sure that you invest it wisely! There are many people who claim that they can help make you lots of money in a very short time, but not everyone can be trusted.
Here are five warning signs of an investment scam:
Promises of quick profits.
Offers to share “inside” information.
Salesmen who pressure you to invest before you’ve had the chance to investigate their claims.
A salesman who discusses a company you’ve never heard of before. Before you invest, check whether or not the company in question is on the Financial Services Board’s fraudulent company alert list by visiting www.fsb.co.za
The use of an alias. If someone wants to hide their true identity you need to question the legitimacy of their claims.
