Over 1500 persons erroneously showed up at Up Park Camp today to sign up for the JNSC recruiting program. The applicants came out in response to false reports on social media that the JDF was registering persons this morning and that anyone with an interest in signing up should come to the JDF Headquarters for an interview. While we appreciate the interest and excitement that persons have shown by coming out this morning to register for the JNSC program, we are reminding applicants that they should only rely on information posted on official JDF social media platforms and mainstream news, for information relating to their applications or the application process. The JDF is also reminding interested applicants that there is no application fee or other costs associated with applying and so persons should be immediately suspicious of anyone trying to “sell” them a spot in the organization. The JDF is buoyed by the show of support and are encouraged by the enthusiasm that young Jamaicans have shown for the JNSC program, but we urge caution as unscrupulous and mischievous persons may try to hijack this enthusiasm for their own nefarious intents. In the meantime, the JDF will be investigating the origin of the fake posting and will update the public accordingly.
