The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) warn the public to beware of fake jobs and advertisements.
This follows after a few fraudulent advertisements are making the rounds claiming there is vacancies in the JMPD and that they are also recruiting.
Officer Xolani Fihla, JMPD Spokesperson, says they distance themselves from these fraudulent advertisements.
The JMPD confirms there are currently no vacancies, saying these advertisements forms part of a scam aimed at deceiving the public.
“Advertisements for any vacancies within JMPD are placed nationally in a range of newspapers if and when they become available.”Xolani Fihla
Fihla said the public also be mindful that they can view existing vacancies from the City of Johannesburg’s official website.
“Only the information on this website is genuine and not advertisement on dubious websites,” Fihla warned.
The public is urged and advised to be vigilant when it comes to these fake job offers and not to be deceived.
Anyone who has information about these scams should report it to the police.
Criminals are out to rob desperate youth who are looking for employment.
The metro police or any state department will never ask you for money to apply for a job.
The public reminded JMPD jobs are not for sale and if any one offers you a job at a cost it is fake.
“We want to emphasize that no one is required to pay any sum of money for JMPD vacancies,” Fihla said.
Fihla says selling fake jobs is illegal and anyone caught doing it will by criminally charged and face the full might of he law.
