Beware of job scammers

2018-05-17 06:00

Transnet Freight Rail has warned all job seekers and members of the public to be cautious of job scams that are being conducted by criminals around the country.

The culprits behind these scams are now using the names of Transnet Executives in their false advertisements.

There are also instances where individuals have travelled great distances in order to attend “job interviews” only to be greeted with disappointment on discovering the whole thing to be a scam.

This is a very unfortunate situation and the Company appeals to all job seekers to exercise extra caution when applying for jobs; particularly in instances where individuals are required to pay money in exchange for job placements.

Transnet Freight Rail has an online application process with a link provided for each advertisement. Adverts are also placed in newspapers where applicants can register their profile and then apply for positions available online.

Transnet Freight Rail does not advertise jobs on Social Media and neither does it receive applications via post or fax.

Anyone who may be aware of such scams is urged to call their toll free fraud hotline number 0800 003 056
