THE Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has dismissed reports circulating on social media platforms purporting that the authority has advertised for jobs.

ZRA Corporate Communications Manager Oliver Nzala said the social media reports are fake adding the general public should not be duped by unscrupulous people who are forging and coming up with fake ZRA documents in order to swindle unsuspecting people.

Mr Nzala said the fake recruitment adverts are a concern to the authority because some members of the public who are desperate for employment get swindled.

He urged the public  to be on high alert concerning the scam, saying the unscrupulous people should be reported to the nearest police station or any ZRA office.

Mr Nzala also dispelled reports that the authority had set up a trust fund.

“The ZRA would like to warn and urge members of the public to strongly ignore and treat social media posts circulating, purporting that there is a Zambia Revenue Support Trust Fund Program and that the Authority has advertised for jobs, as fake. We have noted with great concern fake recruitment adverts circulating on social media purporting to have been issued by the ZRA. This is a big concern for the Authority because some members of the public who are desperate for employment get swindled,”he said.

He said ZRA’s recruitment process is anchored on core values of transparency, professionalism and integrity.

Mr Nzala said that ZRA advertises job vacancies on their website and in the print media.

He said in the past the authority has received cases from some being swindled of hard-earned cash by unscrupulous people purporting to be recruitment agents for ZRA.

He explained the swindlers send fake messages inviting the unsuspecting general public to attend interviews or assessment tests, conduct police clearance, undergo medical examinations and report for work.
