“Communiqué n°00010 on the recruitment of 310 security agents in the services of the Cameroon Civil Aviation Authority (CCAA) for the year 2020 - Bepc and Baccalaureate levels required.” This is the title of a document shared on social media and attributed to the Cameroon Civil Aviation Authority (CCAA).
The first hint of that are the signature of the stamp and the reference number of the document. At first glance, it is obvious that they are rough scans. Using basic Adobe graphics software, one can clearly see the scanned parts.
Then, there’s the e-mail address used. It is not the professional email an organization like CCAA that uses the domain name ccaa.aero would use.
Finally, CCAA's management issued a warning notice on February 12, 2020. The notice informs the public that the structure is “in no way associated with the publication of a press release circulating on social networks inviting people, holders of BEPC and Baccalaureate degrees, to apply for a recruitment competition for three hundred and ten (310) Security Agents at the CCAA.”
Consequently, the Authority invites targeted persons to be more vigilant. It adds that any information of this kind must imperatively be verified at the CCAA headquarters located at Air Base 101 in Yaoundé or on its website: www.ccaa.aero.
“In addition, the perpetrators of such acts, which are undoubtedly aimed at extorting money from young job seekers and tarnishing the image of the Aviation Authority, will be hunted down and prosecuted before the competent legal authorities,” the CCAA concludes.
