Police warn against fake job adverts

SAPS has warned of a fake job ad offering internships and positions for the police’s Basic Learning Development Programme (BLDP).

“Members of the public are warned not to fall prey to these scams,” said Lieutenant General Bonang Mgwenya, accusing “faceless and malicious individuals” of being behind the fake ads.

Available posts would be advertised on the SAPS website, said Lieutenant General Mgwenya, reminding the public that SAPS jobs were “not for sale”.

“Usually, a scammer will try to extort money from his/her victims. The public must be extra vigilant and contact their nearest police station for clarity and information when in doubt.”
