Johannesburg - An email scam that tricked people into depositing money into an account, under the pretext that they were awarded a government tender, has been reported to the police, the Limpopo treasury said on Sunday.

The emails were sent by an address registered in the MEC for finance David Masondo's name, department spokesperson Kevin Ramdharie said.

"No such tender was awarded, as is claimed in the fraudulent email. The MEC does not award tenders as the department has relevant committees which deal with (that)...in line with supply chain management prescripts."

Ramdharie said successful service providers would receive a letter from the department and have their details advertised in the provincial tender bulletin.
