It says the scammers target their victims in hopes of separating them with their hard-earned money. 

Spokesperson Thobeka Mafumbatha says business should carefully scrutinize any tender-related engagements said to be on behalf of or with the municipality as some have already fallen victim. 

She says if anyone is being approached about a tender this should be an immediate red flag.

"The scammers would solicit bribes and money from their victims and say they have qualified for a certain tender which they should apply for", she said.

"I also want to say you do not pay any money for a document or tender. You just simply apply for the tender and go through the evaluation process just like anyone else", Mafumbatha said.
