Scam alert: WhatsApp scam

Please note that a scamster is using WhatsApp to solicit money from people in the name of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

The example we have uses the name Edrisa Barry and claims that Barry is the Foundation’s Gambian coordinator. The Foundation does not have a Gambian coordinator or office, nor does it employ anyone called Edrisa Barry.

Please be advised that this is a scam; the Foundation does not send messages to anyone via WhatsApp, whether written or in voice notes.
