Letoya Makhene-Pulumo

Generations: The Legacy actress Letoya Makhene took to her Instagram timeline to set the record straight about being involved in an alleged Bitcoin scam.

In a clip she explained she was doing iDlozi work and has never invested in Bitcoin nor understood what the cryptocurrency company is about.

The actress was responding to an IOL article in which a man accused Letoya of running a Bitcoin investment scam. 

“Don’t make your problems my problem. I am verified on social media. I have reported all the fake accounts. I don’t scam people of money, I do not do Bitcoin, I do not do forex, I do not ask people to deposit money to me,” she said.
