Fraud­ster tar­gets sugar mill job seek­ers

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Laurie Smith

UMFOLOZI Sugar Mill (USM) man­age­ment have warned that a fraud­ster tar­get­ing po­ten­tial mill work­ers is oper­at­ing in the area. ‘It has come to the at­ten­tion that a fraud­ster is ask­ing for money to se­cure jobs,’ said Petro Vorster, spokesper­son for the mill.

‘This is a lie - we will never ask for any money dur­ing any phase of a job ap­pli­ca­tion at his busi­ness,’ she said. She said that given the cur­rent eco­nomic cli­mate and high un­em­ploy­ment rates, some job seek­ers were fall­ing for the empty prom­ises and will be left dis­ap­pointed - and out of pocket - when they find that no such job was se­cured at all.

USM em­ploy­ees, its con­trac­tors, sup­pli­ers, cus­tomers and the pub­lic at large are en­cour­aged to re­port any il­licit ac­tiv­ity, but par­tic­u­larly in re­spect of this re­cruit­ment fraud, to Whis­tle Blow­ers, an in­de­pen­dent in­for­ma­tion com­pany by the fol­low­ing means: usm@ whistle­blow­, SMS to 33490 or call (toll-free) 0800 222230.
