Beware of fake ‘wealth’ adverts featuring Naas Botha

Former Springbok rugby legend and SuperSport presenter Naas Botha is annoyed about fake advertisements featuring his face on social media.

Scammers use pictures of Botha and his family without their permission and advertise “opportunities to make millions” with cyber currency Bitcoin.

He says the ads are an infringement of his human rights.

“It’s a huge joke – but it’s a joke you can’t get to stop. We’ve reported these ads to Facebook hundreds of times but nothing’s come of it. How hard can it be to establish who’s behind it? Obviously someone’s paying for it,” a livid Botha told YOU.

“It’s absolutely ridiculous. We’ve tried finding Facebook representatives in South Africa, but we couldn’t find a number anywhere.”
