Zambians have lost huge sums of money through online scams in South Africa, a statement said.

The statement, released by the Zambia Embassy in South Africa, said so far about 2.5 million Zambian Kwacha (about 113,843 U.S. dollars) has been lost through such online scams.

Jackson Miti, Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa said the majority of victims were being scammed while trying to purchase agricultural implements, vehicle spare parts, and home furniture from scammers posing as online suppliers.

The Zambian envoy advised people wishing to purchase goods online from South Africa to verify the authenticity of the companies they were dealing with before making payment. Enditem
