Nelson Mandela Foundation

This past festive season an email asking for applications for donations did the rounds.

Email recipients were asked to send (to a Gmail address) their nominations for charities to receive donations from the Nelson Mandela Foundation. 

Once again, the Foundation urges people to watch out for these telltale signs of a scam, many of which were evident in the email:

  • Poor spelling
  • Poor grammar
  • Unofficial email addresses
  • Requests for personal information
