Fraudulent Africa University Track and Field Scholarships


Africa University has been made aware of correspondences and messages being circulated via social media (mainly Whatsapp) from individuals purporting to offer Track and Field scholarships to Africa University for the August 2017 intake. Please note that Africa University is not offering such scholarships.

This is a scam which may seek to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence for illicit purposes. We wish to warn the public at large about these fraudulent activities being perpetrated purportedly in the name of Africa University.

We strongly recommend that the recipients of solicitations such as those described above exercise extreme caution in respect of such solicitations. Financial loss and identity theft could result from the transfer of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence. Victims of such scams may also report them to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action. Africa University will not be held responsible for any loss, financial or otherwise, or emotional distress caused as a result of this regrettable fraudulent activity.
