The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has warned members of the general public not to be swayed or duped by unscrupulous people forging and coming up with fake ZRA documents in order to swindle unsuspecting people.
ZRA Public Relations Officer (PRO) Topsy Sikalinda said the authority is in receipt of a fake ZRA Recruitment Document circulating on social media where people are made to buy and fill in the document with guarantee of employment.
“ZRA wishes to notify the public that it has clear and straightforward guidelines and procedures for recruitment employees and this is done through competitive interviews.
In the event of any job vacancy, ZRA advertises such jobs in the public print media and does not require anyone to fill in a recruitment form but only does so when they have passed the interviews,” Mr Sikalinda said.
He said ZRA’s recruitment process is hinged on principles of transparency, professionalism and integrity.
“We wish to sternly warn perpetrators of such dubious activities that we are alert to such vices and are working very closely with the security wings in order to protect the general populous that mean well for the country,” Mr Sikalinda said.
“The general public is also therefore warned and encouraged to look out for and report such people to the nearest police station or any ZRA office,” he said.
