OVER HUNDRED GWERU RESIDENTS APPLY TO ACT | As the economic woes mount, so does the number of opportunists for scammers to swindle Zimbabweans of their hard-earned money.
Recently Gweru residents were duped after falling for a scam which promised them roles in pn movies and a handsome payoff. According to a source, the so-called auditions were advertised via Whatsapp and the residents fell hook, line and sinker for the scam. All they had to do was a pay $10 for registration.
Many hopefuls ‘applied’ for this role and were instructed to call a number to confirm whether they had been approved for the role.
To their dismay the call was answered by a confused man who professed his ignorance. The man went in as far as suggesting that his number had been used as part of the scam and several people were blowing up his phone inquiring about film roles which he knew nothing about.
