SuperSport United winger Aubrey Modiba has warned people against a fraudster who is using his Whatsapp and Facebook accounts to ask aspiring footballers for money to attend trials.
Modiba says the person who has hacked his accounts is promising people Multichoice Diski Challenge (MDC) trials at different clubs, but tells them that they need to pay R4000 for accommodation.
“On Whatsapp this person is pretending to be me and he is promising trials for MDC and the only problem is accommodation which costs R4,000. He tells them they will earn R17,000 but the only problem is accommodation which they need to pay for. I managed to tip people off quickly,” Modiba explains.
“My Facebook account kicks me out and that’s when I noticed something is wrong. On Facebook messenger this person is sending people messages. People text me and they ask what’s happening on my Facebook account because he is also posting pictures on my account.
“He is asking people for money. Recently he told people that Aubrey Ngoma [Mamelodi Sundowns winger] was caught speeding and he needs money to help him as soon as possible in Turfloop [Limpopo]. I don’t know if people have sent that money, but I am just warning them not to send money to anyone using my Whatsapp or Facebook account.”
