Woman arrested for scamming jobseekers
Polokwane - A 53-year-old woman was arrested in Lebowakgomo in connection with defrauding job seekers, Limpopo police said on Sunday.
"The victims were made to pay R1000 in order to be employed as a clerk, receptionist or a driver in the department of agriculture [in] Lebowakgomo," said lieutenant colonel Mohale Ramatseba.
The woman was arrested by the Hawks on Saturday.
She had tricked 11 people since November last year while pretending to work for the department of agriculture, said Ramatseba.
The woman was expected to appear in the Thabamoopo Magistrate's Court in Lebowakgomo soon.
