Beware: A new job scam claims Carrefour is recruiting 234 young people in Cameroon

Paru le vendredi, 04 décembre 2020 18:28

Carrefour Cameroon is recruiting 234 young people aged between 18 and 40 to strengthen its workforce in its stores in the country, according to a briefing note being shared on social media recently.

The document, bearing the logo of the French company, informs candidates that they have until December 5 to submit their applications, via email, scanning a bar code, or even via a given URL.

They are also invited to call the telephone numbers listed on the note "for more information" or "denounce all forms of corruption" they would be subjected to. It turns out, however, that this document is false. Carrefour Cameroon denies having published such an announcement.

"We would like to inform the public that this false announcement does not come from Carrefour Cameroon. Also, the perpetrators of such acts which aim to extort money from young job seekers and tarnish the image of the Carrefour brand in Cameroon and the Ministry of Employment and Professional Insertion (ed. note: vocational training) are exposed to prosecution before competent judicial authorities,"  the company wrote. It also explains that all of its open recruitments are published on the recruitment section of its website.

Let’s note that apart from Carrefour’s announcements, numerous clues show the said recruitment is fake. For instance, there are spelling mistakes, which could not be found in an official release published by a large company like Carrefour. Also, the email, Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.

It does not correspond with the list of domain extensions (.com, .fr, .eu, .cm, etc.) used by Carrefour.
