It is a criminal offence to pay bribe to post office Marshall to number one on the que. This was revealed by a statement from the SA Post Office warning victims of the practice, which seems to be on the rise. In a statement the post office made it clear that they were aware of and had been informed of incidents where people were going to be paid a certain amount of money in order to jump forward.
This statement emphasizes that no postal worker or anyone has the authority to charge people to be at the front of the line. Visitors to the post office are urged not to become complacent when they see this happening but to report it immediately so that rotten potatoes can be dealt with directly. They were also encouraged not to be afraid to file charges at the nearest police station to end the scandal. Anyone who experiences a scam when seeking help at the post office is urged to report the matter by calling 0800 020 070. The person who reports the corruption has the full right to remain anonymous. Postmasters are also urged to ensure that they adhere to all regulations designed to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. All those earning R350 are reminded that there is no need for them to go to the post office every month to earn money as there are other ways to earn money.
One of them is that they get their salary from their accounts. They are also encouraged to open a bank account, Postbank, to make payments. Those wishing to lead in this way are urged to contact their nearest post office immediately so that they can be provided with the assistance they need.
