It has come to the attention of the North West Department of Community Safety and Transport Management that there is a 12-month traffic training learnership advert doing rounds on social media and other platforms. 

“We warn unemployed or job-seekers of this scam. The advert is captured as a Traffic Officer Learnership x250. The advert was not submitted by our department,” the departmental MEC, Dr Mokgantshang ‘Mpho’ Motlhabane, said.  

Communities are alerted that the circulating advert has no letterhead of the department, its recruiting learners to train for the next 12 months’ period and applicants are requested to download the application form from a link provided by this bogus initiators of the advert.  

“Note that all our departmental advertisements including traffic training learnerships, are published on the departmental letterhead with correct departmental logo, address and contact details, applicants are requested to fill in the Z83 application form, and we do not specify the number of positions available for the learnership”.

“We are not sure of the intentions of the people behind this, but this could end up putting the lives of our people in danger and hard earned money being lost,” Motlhabane added. 

The Police and the HAWKS are investigating.
