Em­ploy­ment scam warn­ing

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Larry Bent­ley

IT has come to the at­ten­tion of Illovo Sugar South Africa that an em­ploy­ment scam is cur­rently tar­get­ing job seek­ers in the KZN and Gaut­eng ar­eas.

Fraud­sters pos­ing as Illovo rep­re­sen­ta­tives are ap­proach­ing job hunters with fake of­fers of em­ploy­ment at the com­pany.

They re­quest up­front pay­ments be­fore the ‘re­cruit­ment’ process can be fi­nalised.

Scam­mers are en­gag­ing with in­di­vid­u­als face-to-face, tele­phon­i­cally and through var­i­ous un­of­fi­cial email plat­forms and web­sites.

The com­pany urges the pub­lic to be wary of un­of­fi­cial em­ploy­ment of­fers, par­tic­u­larly those in­volv­ing fees.

Illovo Sugar says it would never ask for, nor col­lect, any cash pay­ments for em­ploy­ment or re­cruit­ment pro­cesses.

If un­sure if an em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­nity is le­git­i­mate, peo­ple can con­tact Illovo Sugar di­rectly on email abc@ illovo.co.za.

The com­pany is work­ing with the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties to close down these fraud­u­lent ac­tiv­i­ties and to bring those re­spon­si­ble to book.

Any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity or ad­ver­tise­ments must be re­ported to the po­lice.

In­ter­ested job seek­ers for le­git­i­mate op­por­tu­ni­ties are re­quested to sub­mit their CVs through Illovo’s of­fi­cial chan­nels which can be found on www.illovo­sug­arafrica. com/ca­reers.
