JMPDNews24 reports that three people accused of trying to sell "fake" jobs at the Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) have been arrested.  

Officers caught them red handed as they were about to solicit money.  JMPD spokesperson Senior Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said an investigation began when officers on duty outside the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg received a complaint from three youths on Thursday.  The youths claimed that each of them paid R300 to three people for JMPD jobs, but they did not receive receipts.  "The officers then went to the suspects' office, also in the area, and found them in possession of a fake South African Revenue Service (SARS) document and a fake company registration certificate.  The two females and a man were immediately arrested and charged at the Johannesburg Central police station for theft under false pretences,” Minnaar indicated.  He warned the public against falling victim to false job advertisements on social media.
