In a release issued on August 20, 2021, Minister of Youth Affairs (MINJEC) Mounouna Foutsou informs that scammers have been impersonating officials from the Ministries of Youth Affairs and Administrative Reform promising internship at the MINJEC.
In the release, he condemned such acts exposing the authors to legal proceedings. He thus calls on people seeking employment in the civil service to be cautious and to always reach out to the decentralized offices under the MINJEC and the Ministry of Administrative Affairs for relevant and accurate information.
Internet job scams are popular in Cameroon now. Scammers usually post fake job ads allegedly from public administrations and institutions to extort unsuspecting job seekers. The ads are often very interesting, with attractive salaries, pushing many people to rush to apply.
Hence, job seekers should now be cautious, beware of offers that are too tempting, avoid sending personal information, and above all avoid paying money for so-called application processing or any other related fees.
