Eskom warns public about recruitment scam
Eskom has warned the public about a scam by criminals pretending to be Eskom recruitment agents.
It said the fraudsters pretended to be recruiters for Eskom and solicited R1‚500 from job seekers in order to secure employment.
"Once payment is received by these ‘recruiters’‚ would be employees are then directed to report to the main security entrance gate or reception area at an Eskom building‚ only to find there are no vacancies or jobs and the supposed agent has also disappeared‚” the power provider said.
It urged the public to desist from engaging with anyone claiming to be an Eskom recruitment agent‚ especially if the agent requests payment in order to secure employment.
“Members of the public are reminded that all employment opportunities available from Eskom would be advertised on its own website www.eskom.co.za and that Eskom would never ask for payment‚” it stated.
