    Yes we got scammed, try reporting this matter to the police. When did you pay these amounts?

    ?????????? are u really saying we got scammed ? I paid 575 for uniform and 1200 for accommodation ... This is soo sad .
    And again why do we have to post about crime on this site and nothing gets done about it ?
    If only we where to post here and some investigations where to be done maybe ...
    Now we just post with our Data for Mahala ???

    This situation is so frustrating, the more I talk to you the more I realize that the chances of me getting my money back are slim to none. I wish I had come across your post before I gave them money. Thanks for taking time to respond to my questions I really appreciate it.

    there are MANY. but all these job sites are mostly scams. sadly we cant even trust any posts unless its a addresses. most of yahoo and gmail is scams
    indeed 90% scams jooble, josisjob, gumtree, jobmail, and many more are 90% scams. watch out for indeed... (millenium recruitment) i google everything before i send any cv's even if its a email
    sadly the police cant even handle murders and cash heists as most of them too are very much corrupt. you can try report it but i can promise you you will waste your time they will take a statement and you will never hear from them again.

    Your story sounds very similar to mine. I got scammed out of R2075, I terminated my contract with them as soon as I realized something was wrong. They said they'll give me a full refund within 21 days but my gut tells me they're stalling me. I have recorded phone conversations and screenshots of sms correspondence with them. Plus I did a little research and found out the company doesn't exist. I'm gonna report them to the police, I don't know if I'll achieve anything by that but it's worth a try I think.

    no this is one of many that i have encountered. when you go for the interview they only tell you after you come home to pay the money and the job is yours. they use to say you need to pay 600 for police clearence but i see they no longer use that as people are waking up to the fact that 60% of all jobs advertised on the net are scams. i was scammed like that once and you DONT get your money back. they just deny taking it or ever seeing you! The hawks took down about 30 people 3 months ago.... same M.O and same area.... those were the people who scammed me. im sure they will be moving in on these ones too. i have been seeing this for 6 years.... and can spot it imm. these people are sick and taking money from so many poor people who are none the wiser.
    giving them hope where there is none. its disgusting

    Hi Raven

    Did you pay them before you realized it was scam? If so, how did you get your money back from them?
