Netcare warns of jobs scam email

NetcareSouth Africa’s private hospital care network Netcare 911 has warned members of the public about a scam doing the rounds using its name.

The company said its name was again being misused as part of a recruitment scam which states that the company is “seeking to train and place paramedics”.

Members of the public have been receiving hoax emails and SMSes stating that Netcare 911 is in the process of training paramedics.

The company reports that an email asks applicants to email or fax personal documents such as matric certificates and driver’s licenses – which opens the door to identity fraud.

Applicants are also asked to make payments to these unscrupulous entities.

“These emails do not originate from Netcare 911. Netcare and all its subsidiaries do not recruit new staff members in this manner. Members of the public are urged to refrain from responding to these hoax emails‚” the company said.

“People can contact 0860 225 547 if they want to verify the legitimacy of a job posting. The public is urged to contact Netcare’s Fraud and Ethics Hotline on 0860 372 831/ should they suspect any irregularities.”
