The JPM recently received complaints about an individual through a Facebook account registered in the name of 'Datin Maimunah' who claimed of being able to get a job in the government service.
Datin Maimunah claimed she worked in JPM and could help to secure a government job for a fee of RM750 per person.
JPM said a police report was lodged to prevent fraud and to ensure that no individual continues to abuse the name of the department to mislead the public.
"Guidelines for filling vacancies is based on the Public Service Commission Circular No 1/ 2014 which clearly states that any admission into the civil service does not go through a third party nor impose any fees," JPM said.
People interested to work in the public sector can apply online to the PSC by visiting its website at http://www.spa.gov.my, the statement said.
Any question or enquiry about the application can be forwarded to the PSC at 03-80056000 or to the Human Resources Management Division of the ministry, department or agency at 03-80008000.
