South Africa has been hit with cybercrimes and fraudulent scams like never before. These have ranged from cellphone, ATM and online activities. Companies have lost billions of rands while ordinary people fall victim to fraud everyday.

This week on The Business Buzz, We open a discussion around scams with the Executive Director of the Southern African Fraud Prevention Services, Carol McLoughlin and Nathan Desfontaines , Information Security Manager at KPMG Services.

The Operations Manager at SAscholar, Tafadzwa Kachara tells us about an exciting WebApp designed by SAScholar to help students and scholars find funding opportunities for their tertiary studies.

We end the show with our “Rant’ n Rave” for this week, Freddy, who tells us what he loves and hates about his job.
