Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health has warned the public about a dubious online job hoax titled “Nursing Scholarship”.

Department spokesman Sam Mkhwanazi said the advert was being circulated on e-mail and said officials had been inundated with enquiries from the public about the fake advert.

He said they did not know who was responsible and called for people who did know to report them to the police.

“The department regards this hoax advert as deceiving and misleading the vulnerable public, and wishes to condemn it in the strongest possible terms.

“All advertisements by the department are placed in reputable news media, on the intranet and on notice boards.”
