GEPF warns of scam soliciting a fee to assist claimants to receive their money.
The Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF) says that its members should be aware of a scam by fake agents who purport to be representatives of the GEPF soliciting a fee to assist claimants to receive their money.
In a statement, the pension fund says that it has seen sharp increase in reported cases wherein unsuspecting individuals have been swindled out of their hard-earned financial benefits.
‘’The GEPF would like to clarify to its members and the general public that the Fund deals directly with its clients, and does not charge for its services, nor does it recommend agents, companies, or any third party individuals to act on its behalf,’’ it said.
· The GEPF services are FREE;
· No one is allowed to ask for a fee to assist current and former members, pensioners, beneficiaries, and their families concerning any GEPF-provided services;
· One should take the necessary precautions to protect your personal information such as identity document number and bank account details and do not share it with unauthorized persons.
Should members, pensioners, and beneficiaries of the fund, as well as members of the public, require more information, they are urged to call the GEPF on 0800 117 669 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the nearest GEPF office.
