Fake recruiters’ jobs scams

Fake recruiters’ jobs scams


The Federation of African Staffing Organisations (APSO) has issued a warning about job-offering scams.

The organisation urges South African businesses to participate in the regulation of the staffing industry, play a role in promoting transparency and stop the exploitation of job seekers by bogus organisations.

APSO vice-president KC Makhubele says deception in the recruitment industry is forcing employers to consider their options when identifying a partner.

He says businesses will aid in closing down fake recruiters by working with employment agencies that have opened themselves to regulations and scrutiny by industry peers.

Today bogus recruiters pose a threat by offering attractive employment opportunities for money in advance.

This is usually under the guise of work visas, travel expenses or background and or credit checks “required for the position”.

Once the money has been paid over, the job seeker is left with no employment – and no money.

Makhubele says con artists are sophisticated in the way they operate, even posing as companies that already exist. They target job seekers for identity theft and money laundering.
