Media Statement: Employment scam in the name of the Emfuleni local Municipality

28th February 2018 - This refers, Emfuleni Local Municipality has noted with concern the fact that there are unscrupulous people conducting an employment scam using its name. The scam has increased its operations pursuant to the recent job advertisement issued out by the municipality.

These jobs scams send prospective employees or job seekers or job applicants an sms, and/or on social media inviting them to an interview for a particular fee of R2000-00 and above. Emfuleni cautions that NO EMPLOYEE or POLITICIAN IS ALLOWED TO DEMAND OR REQUEST MONEY FOR ANY JOB VACANCY OR INTERVIEW.

The municipality does not demand or request money whatsoever for any recruitment purposes including the administration and processing of employment forms. These are done freely by the administrators in pursuance of appointing relevant persons to the particular job. Any person demanding or requesting money or any special favour in exchange of employment opportunity or promise thereof, must be reported immediately to the office of the municipal manager.

The municipality distances itself from the dubious operations conducted by any person named “Makhosonke” or “Betty”, demanding any fee. Any person depositing such a fee is an accomplice to FRAUD and CORRUPTION.
