International relations warns against scam email

The ministry of international relations and cooperation has alerted the public on a scam email requesting for beneficiaries for the “11th European Development Fund (2014-2020), National Indicative Programme 2014-2020 for Namibia”, using Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah’s name.

The ministry therefore warns that the email used does not belong to Nandi-Ndaitwah.

According to a press release by the ministry, the email also claimed that Nandi-Ndaitwah has distributed the European Development Fund payments to her friends.

“The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation wishes to distance herself from such an email, as it is devoid of any truth and credibility. The Deputy Prime Minister, and the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation does not handle any funds from the European Development Fund. If there are any such funds allocated to Namibia, the relevant institution assigned by an Act of Parliament will take appropriate action in using such funds to the benefit of the Nation, and not for distribution to individuals,” the ministry said.

The public is cautioned not to provide their details in such emails, as they could lose their money to fraudsters impersonating themselves.
