Don’t fall into learnership buying scam

2015-12-10 06:00

The provincial Department of Transport and Public Works is raising an awareness about the scam for Traffic Officer learnerships placed on Gumtree and asking for a R150 “application fee.”

The advertiser calls himself or herself Violet Naidoo and uses a Gmail address.

The person claims to own a 100% black-owned recruitment company with a mandate from the Department of Transport and Public Works to recruit candidates for training.

Members of the public are requested to alert the Gene Louw Traffic College on 021 983 1500 to report any similar attempts to defraud hopeful job seekers. The matter has been reported to the corruption combating authorities.
