Windhoek, Feb. 22 — The Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) has come to learn of people impersonating GIPF staff members, requesting to be provided with members’ personal financial information with the aim to access their money. Kindly be warned that this is a scam!
Scammers come in many forms and through different platforms such as phone calls, text messages, and/or emails prompting the member to provide personal details such as banking details and/or ID number. We urge members to be vigilant at all times and refrain from engaging “Agents” as the Fund does not make use of external service providers.
Please take note of the following:
- The GIPF will not call and ask for your personal or financial information.
- The GIPF does not require our members to pay for any of the services or benefits we offer as a Fund.
- The GIPF does not make use of external service providers when engaging its members.
Members contacted by these imposters are encouraged to call 061 205 1000, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their nearest GIPF office to report the incident. As a Fund one of our pillars of values is Teamwork and we plead with all our members to join this fight against imposters to ensure no one falls prey to this malicious act. At GIPF we believe that teams achieve more than individuals. We, therefore, implore you to work together with the Fund as a team in support of one another in pursuit of our vision.
