ILPA House Job Interview scam

Attention all job seekers! This "company" mostly seeks victims on gumtree. You will be provided with a cellphone number to use for more information about the job. When you call the number, they dont greet/introduce themselves as/with a company name, the person on the line also never introduces themselves. Instead they just ask where you are calling from and your phone number.

They will sms you saying you have an interview at ILPA House in Johannesburg cbd at 7am. I am job hunting. I wrote about 20numbers down from gumtree and 18 of those numbers were the same fraudulent people. Try asking them what their company name is, why all the interviews for all vacancies are at the same time (7am) and why they ask you a R300 registration fee... they will hang up on you.

    He was suppose to go on the 30th so he was skeptical about it and thought it was a scam since they don't have a website and were not answering the phone. So it was not a scam? What were/are the procedures?

    Oh Snap. I nearly fell for it. I googled the address and felt like something was off about the job post. Upon typing the name of the building I came across this site. It's all similar.
    It seems it's a SCAM:
