There is currently viral news about the involvement of reality TV star and self-acclaimed businesswoman, Shauwn Mkhize in a scam. A Facebook user identified as Sivuyile Sophi reported the heartbreaking news about Shauwn Mkhize defrauding him of his last R1000.

According to the 36-year-old man who is from Eastern Cape, he was desperate for money so he approached businesswoman Mkhize on Facebook for her to teach him about trading.


“I asked her to teach me about trading. My intention was to make a lot of money. This person promised to make me R15 000 in three hours if I paid them R5 000. I didn’t have R5 000 but unfortunately, I invested my last R1 000.

“I was broke and had a family to take care of. My desperation was coupled with the fact that I had not worked since lockdown. In December, I was lucky and found a piece job.

“I saved R1 000 and I was planning to buy stationery and school uniforms in January. I kept searching for other ways to make money.”

“Our conversation was fine until she asked for my bank pin. That was when I realized something was wrong. By that time, I had deposited R1 000 and she promised me R5 200 within three hours.

“I asked her to refund my money, but she started telling me stories. I insisted, but she blocked me.”

According to Sivuyile, he was still convinced he was speaking to Shauwn. “I still believe I was scammed by her because she correctly updated her status and photos on Facebook.”

However, Shauwn reacted to the claims of Sivuyile stating that she does not have a Facebook account. Her personal assistant came out to reveal that Shauwn did everything possible to warn people about fake accounts on Facebook. She also explained that she doesn’t do trading.

“Shauwn does not have a Facebook account but a verified Instagram account. She’s done everything to warn people about these fake accounts. She’s explained she doesn’t do trading. It’s sad to see people scammed in her name.” She said.
