Jeannie D announces her official endorsement of ThisIsMe at the Momentum Cricket Sixes Invitational.

ThisIsMe is proud to be associated with the Momentum Cricket Sixes Invitational held this weekend at the Old Edwardians Cricket Club in Johannesburg, where they announced Jeannie D as an official brand ambassador for the innovative South African verification authority. “ThisIsMe embodies all the values that are associated with my brand, such as authenticity, standing up for what I believe in, honesty and integrity, and I am very proud to be associated with the ThisIsMe business,” announced Jeannie D.

“With so many South Africans having their identity misrepresented online, as I recently experienced on Facebook, it is time to take a stand to protect the public from being misled and what better way to do so than through ThisIsMe,” continued Jeannie D.

ThisIsMe, South Africa’s first online identification and verification authority that clearly distinguishes legitimate users from false personas, recently launched to businesses at an event in Cape Town. Jeannie D was chosen as MC and was interviewed by Bonita Nuttall of Carte Blanche fame on the recent misrepresentation of her brand on Facebook. Business Launch Video.

“As the second most targeted country globally for Internet fraud and phishing attacks, South Africans are still very vulnerable and certainly behind the Internet trend of highlighting ways to fight cyber crime and identifying who are real users you can trust and who are not,” stated Mark Chirnside, CEO of ThisIsMe. “Getting South Africans verified through ThisIsMe, is the only way to be sure that as businesses and customers alike, we are dealing with actual, legitimate people.”
