SMME FUNDING

BEWARE OF SCAMSTERS

Dear employer

The Department of Small Business Development has warned SMMEs against fraudulent agencies purporting to be entities of the Department.

According to the Department, these entities are abusing the current socio-economic distress of the country and businesses alike, by fraudulently soliciting administration fees to “fast-track” applications for any of the financial relief schemes offered by the Department.

The Department confirmed that it has no affiliation with these entities and that no fees are charged for any of the services offered to SMMEs and stated that any such fraudulent incidents must be reported to the COVID-19 Hotline: 086 677 7867 or an e-mail should be sent to info@dsbd.gov.za.
