The official notice read,

The FSCA received information that BINANCE GROUP, an international company situated in the Seychelles which has a telegram group that members of the South African public can join to gain access to their cryptocurrency exchange platform. The FSCA would like to caution that in addition to this entity not being authorized to provide any financial services or business, crypto-related investments are currently not regulated by the FSCA or any other body in South Africa.
