Old Mutual warns of scammers

In a recent media release Old Mutual Namibia warns the public of fraudulent letters and loan application forms which has surfaced within the past weeks used to scam people out of their money.

The most recent circulating letters offer business, car and home loans and urge potential clients to email their IDs, payslips and bank statements to show their interest in the offers made. Old Mutual distances themselves from these letters and the activities linked to them.
“First and foremost, we are Old Mutual Namibia and any other name used might be a scam. Be a step ahead at all times. Secondly, should you be offered business, car and home loans -be informed that this is by no means a facility offered by Old Mutual. Old Mutual welcomes all those in need of financial assistance (personal loans and debt consolidation) and one would never be required to make any deposit whatsoever. Should you come across anything suspicious from us requiring deposits, we kindly ask these attempts to be reported to Old Mutual Namibia office as soon as possible. We urge the public to always be aware of such scams and be cautious not to fall prey to such individuals,” the release reads.
Members of the public are encouraged to always be vigilant and go the extra mile to protect personal details and documentation. Old Mutual provides a tip-off line whereby the public is urged to utilise the number 0800 222 117.
