  • You will NEVER be contacted by SMS if you are a winner.
  • Unless pre-arranged with you, YFM representatives will NEVER come to your office or home to say you are a winner or to deliver a prize.
  • The ONLY prize collection points from YFM is from the reception area of YFM, Dunkeld Crescent South West Block, 4 Albury Road, Dunkeld West ext 8, Sandton, 2196 or a Makro store. Please NEVER agree to collect a prize from ANYWHERE else. Under exceptional circumstances and with management approval, prizes will be couriered to winners who live outside of a 50km radius of the YFM offices or a Makro store.
  • If anyone phones to say you have won a prize in a YFM & Makro competition, make sure you entered it! If anyone calls to say you hav won a competition you never entered with the Promoters, it is NOT one of our representatives.
  • Our representatives will be able to quote you your identity number. If in ANY doubt, ask the caller for their name and the YFM or Makro switchboard number and phone the caller back. Any number other than 011 772 0800 or 011 797 0000 means the caller is trying to trick you.
