Beware: FAKE Netcare 911 job and training opportunities doing the rounds

Fake job and training scams using the Netcare 911 name are doing the rounds on social media and other informal platforms.

The hospital group has warned the public against the fake jobs being advertised.

“Netcare is alerting the public to the opportunistic placement of Netcare-specific career and training opportunities on social media and other informal platforms, with the Netcare or Netcare 911’s name misused in a series of social media job and training scams.”

It furthermore said specific Facebook posts falsely indicate that the company is seeking to employ paramedics and nurses.

“Similarly, learnerships and internship vacancies within Netcare are also being advertised. We continue to receive enquiries from members of the public seeking clarity on employment or training opportunities that are advertised fraudulently through various social media platforms under Netcare’s name.”

Netcare said typically, the modus operandi of these fraudsters is to solicit money from the public with a promise of either employment at a Netcare facility or training towards becoming a Netcare employee. This is often done by requesting applicants to send payment as a part of their application.

Here are some warnings that may indicate that the job advertised is a scam and not a legitimate job opportunity:

  • The application form asks for banking details;
  • Only a cellular telephone number is supplied for enquiries as the landline is “out of order”;
  • A dream job without the need of being interviewed is being promised;
  • A legitimate sounding name (Net-care) is being used;
  • Payment may well be requested “upfront” for administration purposes, accommodation and uniforms;
  • The payment mechanism is suggested as being facilitated via a cellular telephone number at a money market facility, such as a supermarket.

“We urge the public to be very suspicious of such messages, Facebook postings, and emails as they do not originate from Netcare. This is not the way that we recruit staff or advertise learnerships and internships.

“Job seekers are furthermore urged to not make any payment in an attempt to secure a job interview, learnership programme or any other employment opportunities where the Netcare or Netcare 911 or a variation of the names is used.”
