Department warns of fake social media accounts

Fraud Alert:

The Ministry of Transport has set the record straight on social media accounts impersonating Minister Dipuo Peters.

“Through several public complaints, it has come to the ministry’s attention that illicit and unauthorised criminal activities are being perpetrated using the Minister’s profile and image on social media.

“We urge the public to note that the Minister will never solicit funding or conduct business transactions of any kind on social media platforms,” said the ministry in a statement on Tuesday.

The Minister’s official Twitter handle is @DipuoPeters, while the department’s official account is @DoTransport.

The ministry said the Minister and the department’s social media accounts are committed to sharing information on government programmes and interacting with the public in good faith.

“Any attempt to do otherwise must be condemned and reported immediately,” said the ministry. – SAnews.gov.za
