JMPDNews24 reports that four people were arrested on Friday for participating in an alleged fake Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) jobs scam in Tembisa, east of the city.  

JMPD spokesperson, Senior Superintendent Wayne Minnaar, said the alleged scam was discovered when a young woman went to the JMPD offices for a job after she paid "recruiters" thousands of rands.  The JMPD warned the public that "jobs are not for sale".  The four persons, aged between 30 and 40, are being detained at the Tembisa police station and an investigation is under way.  Minnaar warned the youth to be aware of fake job adverts and said the department did not advertise on social media, but used newspapers instead.
