Common Recruitment Scams
There can be varieties of employment scams in Ghana, but some of the commonly used in the Ghanaian society are the; fake advertised job and the job application scams.
Fake Advertised job
This is one of the scam methods on our list, using to target the unemployed personalities by advertising supposed job openings in reputable organizations.

Job application scammers try to find all your details and get in touch with you. They approach you with some nice gesture message like: “Mr. Jasper, you applied for a position at Abingo Ent last week.”
After finding out that you are not employed yet, they may now convince you with new job opening at other firm they think you will be comfortable with.
You will now pay for this special favour to continue with your job application.
Try and be smart to avoid being a victim to these scams to stay safe.
How to avoid recruitment scam
To avoid being a victim of recruitment scams, you should always know the type of corporation or firm you are dealing with, and not paying for any additional money.
Though some institutions that are owned by the state require that you buy application forms and pay for other bills. One of these is the security agency that recruits people when they buy registration form and pay for their own medical bills.
Websites and social media accounts are the fastest mediums used to scam people with fake adverts and job applications. Always take your time to cross check, verify websites and social media accounts of these recruitment scams to avoid the trap of being scammed.
Understand the nature of their firm and ask several questions to get better understanding that will help you conduct research on the corporation or firm.
COVID-19 is real so stay safe and practice social distancing.
