Jazzman Warns Of Scammers
Football agent Jazzman Mahlakgane has sent a warning that scammers are using his name and that of AmaZulu President Sandile Zungu.
Mahlakgane, who is the agent of well known players like Themba Zwane, Theminkosi Lorch, and Siphiwe Tshabalala, amongst others, sent out a voice message, that Safja (South African Football Journalists Association) shared with iDiski Times and other South African media.
Mahlakgane warns that these fraudsters are pretending to be him and Zungu, and he warns to not send money to anyone asking for it.
“Hi everyone, this is Jazzman Mahlakgane,” Mahlakgane said in a voice message.
“I just wanted to warn everyone out there that there are fraudsters or scammers who are using my name and that of the owner of AmaZulu Football Club, Mr. Sandile Zungu, in extracting money from them, pretending to be myself and promising them contracts and everything.
“So this is just a warning to everyone. Please do not pay money to anyone, for anything, whether it’s for a contract promise, whether it’s for travel, whether it’s for accommodation, whether it’s for an endorsement, please do not pay any money to anyone. They will send you a fake EFT or a fake cash sent. Please don’t fall into that trap. It is a scam.
“Please, if anyone promises you a contract and they pretend to be Jazzman, please to not fall into that scam, it is not true! And don’t pay any money. Don’t send any money. Do not pay any money for any accommodation, or don’t pay any money for a flight, for anything.
“I am appealing to everyone, whether you’re a young footballer, whether you’re a current footballer, whether you’re a legend, whether you’re a coach, please note, it is not myself.
“There are fraudsters that have cloned themselves to sound exactly like me apparently, and that of Mr. Zungu. So I therefore wish to warn everyone not to be desperate and end up being the victim of the scammers. Thank you.”
