sandf thumb medium90 89Pretoria News reports that job seekers have been warned not to be lured by the false SA National Defence Force (SANDF) advertisement that will be published by Sunday newspapers this weekend and in the Daily Sun newspaper on Monday.  

The recruitment scam, the army said, was targeting new members for the Military Skills Development System.  But, spokesperson Siphiwe Dlamini said, the system was already under way, having started this past weekend when 1,552 recruits reported for duty.  “The SANDF has not issued any advertisement with regard to the recruitment of new members yet.  The (false) advertisement for 2018 recruitment will be published in the Sunday newspapers on January 21 and on the Daily Sun newspaper on January 22.  The SANDF neither sells application forms nor uses recruitment agencies,” Dlamini said.  Military recruitment scams have become part and parcel of the wider South African employment landscape, with similar scams having previously been run in the Western Cape, aimed specifically at the South African Navy, and in Mpumalanga and North West provinces.
