Getting a call for an interview after desperately searching for a job can bring so much hope - this is the same hope a young lady experienced recently. Unfortunately, her hope was soon crushed after she traveled all the way to Johannesburg for a supposed job interview.
Taking to Twitter, @gomii_meje explained how she had left her home after receiving news that she had an interview ìn the City of Gold. However, after she arrived here she sadly found out that the interview was a scam.
"Not me coming to Jozi for an interview only to find out it ain’t legit," wrote the broken hearted Gomii.
It seems like she was not the only one who had been caught out or singled out by scammers. Many locals were soon in the comment section sharing how they too were caught or nearly caught by those looking to scam hopeful job-seekers.
Read a few of their comments below.
"I went for an interview too in Joburg yesterday in Maboneng. I got scammed."
"Askies dear better do a background check before you go on another one."
"Expose the scammers."
"Every time you are going to an interview make sure you are accompanied by at At least 2 male friends and let everyone close to you know that you are going to an interview. Anyway I am sorry and better luck next time may God be with you."
