The Muvhango production team has warned fans not to fall for an audition scam that's been doing the rounds.

In a statement, the popular SABC2 soapie's team mentioned that there's currently a scam that has seen potential actors being invited to audition or do screen tests for different characters in Orange Grove, Johannesburg. They're charging R300. 

"The scammers unfortunately used the name of a casting agency we have been doing business with for years and as a result, we are left with no choice but to cut ties with Becky Casting Agency as their name was roped in from an e-mail we had sent to the agency," said the show's associate producer, Morishe Matlejoane in a statement.

Matlejoane made it clear that production companies don't charge a fee for auditions or screenings.

"We would like to encourage the victims of this scam to report the matter at the police station nearest to the venue of the bogus auditions. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
