Liquor authority warns of scam

Aug 23 2016 13:43

Cape Town - The Western Cape Liquor Authority (WCLA) said on Tuesday it received numerous telephone calls from liquor license holders enquiring about a text message requesting a R250 administration fee.

The SMS further states that, in order to avoid penalties or suspension of their liquor license, they should pay the money before September 1.  

The liquor authority emphasised that it has certainly not distributed any such SMS.

"The WCLA would like to remind valid liquor licence holders of the annual renewal period which starts on October 1 and ends on December 31 2016. During this period liquor licence holders are expected to pay their annual renewal fees to avoid penalties," it said in a statement.
