Fake Facebook accounts are giving reality television star and sangoma Lee-Anne Makopo a huge headache. The talented media personality has warned people about these fake accounts.

Gogo Maweni told Daily Sun she started being conscious of the accounts three months ago.

“This is after someone called me and said they deposited R4 000into my account to help them, but I never delivered.

I was very surprised because I even have never received any of that cash or have consultations on WhatsApp, as they claimed that I consulted them on WhatsApp.

“Someone else is pretending to be me and scamming people of their hard-earned cash. Gogo Maweni said she got hold of the person over the phone and that they denied everything.

When I told them I’m getting to report the account number that folks are sending money into, they said its fine they’ll open another account.

She further said she seeked assistance from the police but she was never helped. I even have also tried reporting it to the police, but the police told me the simplest thing to try to to is to talk to those people.


Gogo Maweni said she’s pleading with everyone to prevent sending money to those scammers. I’m pleading with people to prevent being gullible and sending people money who aren’t what they claim to be. I’m very transparent and my number and address is everywhere.

“It breaks my heart because some people share that they send these scammers their last money, with the hope that they’d be assisted.”

She further said she considered using umuthi. I even considered retaliating and use ukuthi against them because their doing have affected me greatly as many now believe i’m fraudulent.

“But I don’t have time to retaliate to use umuthi on this one that I don’t, I don’t have their name, surname or maybe their picture, I’m at some extent where i want people to be very vigilant.

Gogo Maweni said all of this is often bad for her business. These scammers are ruining my image because people now don’t trust the method of doing online or maybe purchasing herbs online in fear that i’d take their money and not deliver.
