The City of Cape Town has
warned against a job scam doing the rounds regarding people wanting to become
fire-fighters register with R200 for training and job placement
The City has appealed to
anyone who might have fallen victim to the scam to report it immediately to the
South African Police Service.
City of Cape Town’s Executive
Director for Safety and Security Richard Bosman said the City advertises its
jobs properly in the newspaper.
Bosman said drop your
application at a fire station or the City office but you do not respond to a
recruitment advert like that.
Bosman said the city also does
not charge any recruitment fee for anyone who pays this money.
Bosman said anyone who pays these
fees should report to SAPS.
Bosman said people must stop
being naïve so the moment you asked to pay a fee then should know already that
something is wrong.
“We want to ask people to
please expose the person doing this not to get involved and report it to the
police where there are people are really struggling as they are so desperate to
get jobs who lend money to pay these people who they will never see again”
