Neighbour shared to our street whatsapp group and it's apparently a Takealot (local equiv to Amazon) survey and prize giveaway. Other neighbour says she won but has to call an international number and she can't. I'm pretty sure it's a scam but can't find much detail. Apparently the link only works if you're on whastapp - in my desktop browser it tries loading . Can't find much on Google; anyone capable of doing a bit more sleuthing?


@welshpixie asked my so what he would do (works in that security area). We couldn't find much on the websites itselfs (checked for viruses with some tools) but we still think this sounds like a scam.

@julloyart Yeah, 'win prizes for a South African shopping site but you need to call an international number to get them' is big red flag
