Coronavirus scams are rife in South Africa

The South African Banking Risk Information Centre (SABRIC) is warning people about coronavirus scams which include spoofed emails, phishing websites, and SMishing.

SABRIC said cybercriminals are exploiting the spread of coronavirus for their own gain by using panic to spread coronavirus scams.

It's sickening. Scammers should be treated like looters.

Unfortunately in SA that means nothing would happen to them. They should rather be treated like estate agents that use the wrong words. Guaranteed jailtime...
