Cape Town – Don't fall for fake advertisements for police traineeship and other vacancies, the SAPS warned on Friday.

Advertisements posted on career website Jobfeed for traineeship with the police were dismissed by spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala as bogus.

"As it is the norm, the SAPS wishes to state that advertisements for any posts within its structures are, if and when they become available, placed in a range of newspapers in the country to reach as many potential and suitable candidates as possible," he said in a statement.

"The public should also bear in mind that they can view existing vacancies and obtain the official application forms from the official website of the SAPS at www.saps.gov.za. Only the information that is on this website can be regarded as authentic."

He confirmed there are currently no posts for police trainees.

"These advertisements form part of a scam aimed at misleading the public and should be ignored," Mohlala warned.
