Big fake news! The High Commissioner for Refugees is not recruiting 1961 seasonal employees, said Xavier Bourgois, member of the communication unit of the United Nations Refugee Agency in Cameroon. “There is no such massive recruitment underway,” he added.
“These are false documents. It's to scam people. They are required to pay money, supposedly for the costs of the files,” Mr. Bourgois warned.
The announcement also mentioned a monthly allowance of €730 (CFA485,450), a health insurance of €300, among others. To appear real the document is marked by logos of UNHCR, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the World Bank. Unfortunately, many fall into the trap.
