DJ Zinhle is the latest celebrity to notice that scammers have been using her name to try and lure unsuspecting victims into parting ways with money and she has quickly put an end to it
The celebrity DJ and mother of one was shocked to learn that scammers were fraudulently recruiting students into her now defunct DJ-ing school, Fuse Academy and she was desperate to ensure that nobody else falls victim when she issued a warning on her social media pages this past Thursday afternoon.
Zinhle delivered two bouts of shocking news when she tweeted that not only had she temporarily closed down her famous DJ academy, but that a number of fraudulent people were using its name to still enroll students.
She shared an urgent update on Twitter where she wrote:
Please note that I have temporarily shut down Fuse Academy. Do not pay anyone for enrollment even if they are using a Fuse Academy account. If you have paid, please email email@example.com

When fans asked for an explanation, DJ Zinhle refused to share the reasons behind the academy’s closure.
However, it is worth noting that the “Fuse Academy” Facebook page has been accepting enrollments all year and one wonders if the fraudsters may have gained access to the profile.
This is the second time that scammers have targeted DJ Zinhle in 2019
Back in January, the #1 female DJ in Africa discovered that her name was being used in a furniture scam that stole money from prospective buyers without ever delivering goods.
At the time she wrote on her Instagram stories, “If someone/company tells you I bought furniture from them, please DM me to verify. Two people have been a victim and are struggling to get their money back”.
It appears as if scams and fraud have been following DJ Zinhle for the last few years. Back in 2017, her relationship with Brendon Naidoo came to an end after the businessman was arrested on allegations of fraud.
Hopefully this will be the last time people use or involve DJ Zinhle in her crimes!
