The MVA Fund has recently learned of a new scam making its rounds around state hospitals countrywide, whereby scammers approach people that have been involved in motor vehicle crashes and deceitfully introduce themselves as MVA Fund employees distributing the Fund’s claim forms.

It has also come to the Fund’s attention that these forms are sold at a price of N$250.00

“We would like to inform the public that these claim forms are not for sale and should refrain from such acts. In normal circumstances, the Fund assigns Case Managers at all of its Service Centres to conduct daily hospital visits and assist people who were involved in crashes by distributing the claim forms at no cost, whilst explaining the claim process. This process is part of the MVA Fund’s Case Management procedures which are in-line with the Fund’s Act.10 of 2007,” said MVA Fund’s Chief Corporate Affairs, Surihe Gaomas-Guchu.

In the bid to ensure a smooth and efficient claims process administration and accessibility to its claim forms, the Fund distributes its forms at some regional Nampost offices, State Hospitals and all of its Service Centres in Windhoek, Otjiwarongo, Walvisbay, Ongwediva, Keetmanshoop, Katima Mulilo, and Rundu.

“All the forms are distributed at no cost and anyone who comes across someone selling these forms should not purchase them and must immediately report this fraudulent activity on the Fund’s Anti-Fraud number: 081 155 0505,” said Gaomas-Guchu.
