Illovo Sugar warns about employment hoax

ILLOVO Sugar South Africa has warmed about an employment scam currently targeting job seekers in the KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng areas.

Perpetrators, posing as representatives from Illovo Sugar South Africa, are approaching potential job hunters with fake offers of employment at the company.

These fraudsters are requesting a costly, upfront payment before the fraudulent ‘recruitment’ process can be finalised.

Scammers are engaging with individuals face-to-face, telephonically and through various unofficial email platforms and website domains that are in no way affiliated to Illovo Sugar South Africa, nor to its holding company, Illovo Sugar Africa.

“We urge members of the public to be wary of any potential offers of employment, particularly those that involve monetary transactions or fees – please note that we would never ask for, nor collect, any cash payments associated with our employment or recruitment processes,” stated Illovo Sugar SA.

“We are working with the relevant authorities to close down these fraudulent activities and to bring those responsible to book. Equally, we encourage members of the public to also report any suspicious activity or advertisements to the police – and for those who may be impacted to formally open a case at their nearest police station,” stated Illovo Sugar SA.

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
