Public warned of navy scam

2012-06-22 22:34

Cape Town - The military has warned of a scam in the Western Cape where people are being charged for SA Navy job application forms.

Anyone wishing to join the navy does not need to pay for application forms, the SA National Defence Force said on Friday.

Spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini said a person was recently arrested in Nyanga for charging about R1 500 for the forms.

The police were not immediately available for further information.

      Koos is right , what frikken navy , this lot buggered everything up

      Our Navy, like the rest of our defence force is just a big fat joke. There is no more pride of position rank nor regiment. It's so sad that those once fine regiments, bands and units of the various forces are gone forever. The traditions, now referred to as "colonial" are the very fibre that kept the whole thing together. What a pity that members now use the force to scam people even before they have joined the circus...what a pity..!

      koos.vandermerwe.338 - 2012-06-23 01:35

      Dignity and SANDF can't be used in the same sentence.

    People with brains still fall for schemes like these - speak about lack of general knowledge! If you are so ignorant then what goes around, comes around! You deserve to fall for these Nigerian scams! I have no sympathy for any of you! If it sounds too good to be true then it usually is, get it. Do you think that the government would in any way operate in this manner!?

      Wim - 2012-06-23 03:43

      "People with brains..."? No, it was one of the 69IQ brigade that makes up the new SANDF.

    Western Cape, out of all the provinces. Thought corruption was only rife in the ANC led provinces, but knew it is just about all over, just that the numbers and critics are hell bend on their agendas. Even though there are bad elements in the ANC, good ones aint good enough either by those (u know urselves)

      Irene - 2012-06-23 14:33

      Ah shame. Do they get more ignorant than this?

  • somikazi.pita - 2012-06-23 15:24

    If you still fall for these type of scams, you are just plain ignorant and deserve what ever you get.

  • tmogapinyane - 2012-06-23 16:38

    Who ever was selling the forms took advantage of the poor but people like to use short cuts as well, after getting this jobs they start to bully us and steal our tax money! Why can't we just work our way up honestly brother? Wake up!!

  • masamune.azeem - 2012-07-19 17:04

    If you are stupid enough to pay 1500, i say you deserve to be scammed.Human are too lazy to do something called thinking.honestly.If you're poor why would you part with 1500 for a form. How many times are you suppose to warned about these scams.
