|+8 HURESCO LIMITED JOB SCAM VACANCY POSTED ON BRIGHTER MONDAY, KENYA |
THEY SENT ME AN EMAIL TELLING ME I HAD BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR A JOB. IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE INTERVIEW I HAD TO PAY KSHS.1,027 VIA M-PESA TO LEONARD OBUYA. THE INTERVIEWS WERE SUPPOSEDLY BEING HELD ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
ONE OF THE LOCATIONS WAS BATIAN GRAND HOTEL IN NYERI. I ARRIVED AT THE HOTEL AT 9:30AM AND THE RECEPTIONIST TOLD ME THERE WERE NO SUCH INTERVIEWS BEING HELD THERE ON 28TH OCTOBER 2015.
I CALLED TH NUMBER GIVEN FOR THE M-PESA ACCOUNT AND THE PERSON DID NOT RESPOND. EACH TIME I CALLED, THE TELEPHONE WAS BUSY/ HE IGNORED MY CALL. HE SENT ME AN EMAIL ASKING WHAT I WANTED. I TOLD HIM I WAS IN NYERI AT BATIAN FOR THE INTERVIEW. THE RESPONSE? WHY ARRIVE FOR INTERVIEW WITHOUT SENDING THE MONEY?
I HAD SENT THE MONEY ON 24TH OCTOBER 2015 AS REQUESTED. I CALLED THE NUMBER ABOUT SEVEN TIMES AND THE RESPONDENT LEONARD OBUYA REFUSED TO ANSWER IT.
TO ALL FELLOW KENYANS SHORT ON CASH AND LOOKING FOR A JOB, LOOK OUT FOR THIS COMPANY AS IT IS A FAKE!! BELOW ARE FURTHER DETAILS

firstname.lastname@example.org sent me an email inviting me for an interview on 24 th January 2017.
The article read, I quote,
"For you to be considered for the job interview you shall be required to send a PARTIAL REFUNDABLE MEDICAL/AGENCY fee of Kshs1,027 to be sent via MPESA number 0797564298 latest by 18th January 2017,the fee is refundable if you don’t pass the interview on the spot via MPESA. TAKE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOT HANDLING ANY CASH AT OUR OFFICE OR AT THE INTERVIEW VENUES.ALL CASH SHOULD STRICTLY BE SENT TO OUR ACCOUNTANT KEVIN OUMA ODHIAMBO WHO IS THE RECIPIENT OF THE MPESA NUMBER.
Thanks -Recruitment and Training Manager Phone ;0797564298,020986754"
I immediately recognized this as a scam and I asked them a few questions to catch them in their lie. I texted, I quote "Good afternoon, The email I received was quite vague so I have a few questions. Who will be conducting the interviews? Is it the agency or the client? Who is the client? Why do I have to pay a fee to be interviewed? Don't clients already pay HR firms to outsource viable candidates?"
Obviously they could not answer any of my questions and when I told them I was reporting their scam, they wrote "Go and report hahaha"
Another number they use is +254797949110
Please be careful and think before you send money to anyone. You DO NOT pay to be considered for an interview.

I received a text message informing me that I had been selected for an interview and that I should send a refundable amount of Ksh.1027 prior to the interview date. I looked up the firm on the internet and found out that the interview was a scam. Someone had followed the instructions only to realise he had been tricked.
