PetroSA WARNING ABOUT EMPLOYMENT SCAM
 
Cape Town, 14 April 2016 – PetroSA, South Africa’s National Oil Company, wishes to alert job-seekers about a scam it has uncovered wherein fraudulent advertisements offering non-existent employment with the company are being placed on the gumtree.co.za website.
 
The advertisements solicit applications for non-existent vacancies at PetroSA in exchange for payment. PetroSA has reported the fraud to the owners of the gumtree.co.za website. The company further wishes to alert potential job seekers to be vigilant and not to be victims of such fraudulent advertisements.
 
More importantly it should be noted that PetroSA does not charge job seekers any fees when applying for employment with the company.
