She's urging people to be vigilant and not to fall for fake information.

"This misinformation is devoid of the truth and is tantamount to causing chaos which may lead to unrest and undesirable consequences to damage of property.

"The process to appoint service providers has just started and is only at the evaluation process. The agency warns all bidders against this scam and any other bid where people take money ,claiming that they are from SASSA."
