Police warn against recruitment scam

On Thursday, September 13 a man aged 22 years went to Hibberdene SAPS to report a theft case after he was defrauded of R2000 when he received information that employment was offered at a local police station. He received a call from a person pretending to be a police officer , who then instructed him to deposit the said amount into a Spar account, which he then did. The same man further requested the victim to supply him with his full details and instructed him to meet another police member at the police station. It turns out this person did not exist.

It was only then that he realized he had been defrauded.

Another similar incident was reported the following day by another young man who received a telephone call from an unknown person  who knew his personal details and stated that he had passed his psychometric test.  He became suspicious and reported the incident to the police.

The police wish to state that jobs are not for sale. No cash has to be paid when application is done to apply for advertised posts. The public must be aware of scams which target young people who are currently unemployed.
