A press release attributed to the Cameroon Civil Aviation Authority (CCAA) announces the aviation authority will recruit 450 security agents this year.
This announcement is fake, as the CCAA informs. This is not the first time it is being impersonated in job scams. Last year, it issued a statement denying a job ad claiming it would recruit 310 operational staff. At the time, the denied job ad was requiring applicants to pay nearly XAF35,000 for various fees.
To avoid falling prey to those schemes, job seekers are advised to follow simple safety steps. First, they should not pay any money. Then they should contact the company or institution allegedly recruiting to check the authenticity of the said job ad. For the CCAA, "such information should be checked at the CCAA headquarters located at Air Force Base 101 in Yaoundé or on the website: www.ccaa.aero,” the aviation authority indicates.
