Employment scam warning
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.
