NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. ("Net 1" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: UEPS), concerning potential violations of federal securities laws.

On December 4, 2012, Shares of Net 1 fell 58% or $4.62 to close at 3.22 after the company announced that it received a letter from the US Department of Justice, Criminal Division (the"DOJ") on November 30 informing the Company that the DOJ and the FBI are investigating whether the company had made corrupt payments to South African government officials to secure a contract with the South African Social Security Agency ("SASSA").  The alleged payments relate to securing a contract with SASSA to provide social welfare and benefits payments.  The agencies will also investigate if Net 1 violated federal securities laws in connection with statements made in its SEC filings regarding the SASSA contract.  The Company further disclosed that the SEC's Division of Enforcement has advised Net 1 that it is also conducting an investigation of the Company.
