A manager in Empilweni Hospital was notified of the scam earlier this week with the sting also circulating on social media, department spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said on Friday.
A prospective victim would receive a message from a “Sister Parks” stating their application for a post at the department had been successful.
They would then be instructed to deposit R150 into the Standard Bank account of a “Dr Marcus” with payment required as soon as possible. It was also demanded they fax the payment slip with an ID copy to a Despatch number.
Kupelo said the department was not connected to the scam in anyway.
