Beware of bogus callers & SMS notifications that say you’ve won with YFM. Here’s how you can check for bogus notifications:

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’re a winner or to deliver a prize.

The ONLY prize collection point from YFM is from the YFM at eMedia Investments, 4 Albury Road, Dunkeld West/Hyde Park, Sandton, 2196. 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.

If anyone phones to say you’ve won a prize in a YFM competition, make sure you entered it! If anyone calls to say you’ve won a competition you never entered with YFM, it is NOT one of our representatives.

Our representatives will be able to quote you your ID number. If in ANY doubt, ask the caller for their name and the YFM switchboard number and phone the caller back. If in doubt, you can call YFM and speak to Mathapelo.

If you are concerned that a bogus caller has contacted you, please store the number of the caller (if you have caller ID) and email it to
