    It's a scam, I also recieved such. I never gave anyone my banking details yet seemingly they have them. The painful part is that banks charge us when we reverse such fraudulent debits.

    @@PJM123 Guys I think banks are involved in this scam...because they also making money out of those reversals. The is no way that banks can't protect our money. I mean to reverse a transaction from the branch can cost R45 depending on your bank, so one can imagine if 1000 people makes reversal from one bank that bank can make R45000 out of nothing.

    @Minenhle Dlamini you can report the transaction to your bank once it has gone through but you can stop it, you can reverse it. the bank will block that "address" from doing another debit from your account, but then these people will come back again under another "address" and debit your account again. then you have to start all over again...

    @Andiswa Meslane sorry - meant to say that you *can't* actually stop it - you just have to wait until it goes through and then only can you take action

    I also just recieved that sms too... Where do they get our ID numbers? I don't even know that co. But I do believe they work with the banks, I use Fnb and I get such every month... Fnb is gaining from this people I tell u cos when you reverse the debit order, Fnb charges you everytime... Im changing banks seriously tired of Fnb allowing this [censored]ers to [censored] us up every month.

    @Khoza Angel @khoza angel it seems like the majority of people whom received such sms's are banking with FNB
    #I'm also affected.

    If they debit it then i have no other option than to change to another bank.

    Surely we are not safe with fnb

    @Velley Khalanga Hi everyone, Okay, thought i was the only one. This quite alarming. FNB needs to address without cost implications to it's customers it can't be a coincidence that we all received notifications today!!

    @Lepu I also got the same SMS and debit order. But I stopped and reversed it. Fnb no longer charges us for stopping and reversing fraudulent debit orders of less than R200 if done via cellphone banking (or online banking) within a month - I think it's a month.

    I am Mdav Mntolo - I am an FNB account holder and received this bogus SMS, I hope banks are not part of this scam, I know FNB said ... “Customers will no longer be charged for stopping unauthorized debit orders of less than R200 through the FNB App, Online Banking, and USSD.” and that they are monitoring non-FNB businesses that are processing illegal debit orders on FNB customers. These people are taking us for a ride the government must pass laws to prevent such scammers to operate in the country, else charged with criminal offence.

    @Khoza Angel I first received a phone call from 0314924412 a lady said she was calling from Multichoice and was asking me to upgrade the package and I ended the call immediately. After 5 minutes i received an sms saying "Your Egoli Rewards 135.00 debit will bill on 31 Jan as sold to you by Dialler Commu ref TBDIALC + my ID number as reference." This is a scam and they come almost every month or 2 months. on 14 dec 2018 another one JZTIN debited my account and had to reverse and stop. I have had such debits at least 5 times last and they come with different reference numbers. All the debits in 2018 were initiated in Durban.
    I bank with FNB and they also told me they could not do anything until the debit goes through. Sadly if you do not reverse and stop within 40days, the money is paid into the account for the fraudsters. I think banks are involved in this because they charge for those reversals and if a debit bounces, you are charged a fee for having no money. I think i just have to close my bank account and open a new one.

    Hi guys I also received the same SMS from "Your Egoli Rewards informing me that they will debit my account with R135. I called the ABSA fraud line and they said they cannot do anything to prevent it and I must allow the debit order to go through then incur costs to reverse it. I find that unacceptable and it gives the impression that the banking sector are happy to allow this to continue for as long as possible because they are also benefiting.

    ABSA basically told me to report it to a police station...and I'm failing to understand why I must pay my bank a service fee every month then be told I must solve their security breach as well.

    Apparently its not the banks themselves. Its a few rogue employees working at the banks feeding these scammers our details. I do however feel that the banks should do more to control this. It's not fair for the customer to bear the fee for reversing fraudulent debit orders.

    There's actually 2 messages that went out to majority of FNB clients today. The other one goes as follows:

    " Your Viva Lifestyle 129.00 debit will bill on 31 Jan...by Direct Comm Ref BD3347972190131..."

    Also received the message. Let the transaction go through, stop it, get all the details of who requested the payment and lodge a complaint with your bank. Request a case no/ref no and send all the info to PASA (PAYMENT ASSOCIATION OF SOUTH AFRICA)- ([email protected]). The will investigate and deal with the fraudulent companies. Then based on their findings, you can open a case with SAPS. It seems like a lotof work but we need to deal with these fraudsters taking our hard earned money and making us run around to resolve it.
