How Job Seekers are Being Tricked By Con Artists


Crafty tricksters are taking advantage of desperation among unemployed youth, making the latter to part with thousands of shillings to secure ghost jobs

A keen observer passing near the Odeon bus terminus will not miss the sight of people jostling for space to get a glimpse of some notice boards stretching all the way to a nearby bank branch.

One can even be fooled to think the crowd of people, mostly the youth and those new in the city, are outdoing each other to watch a free cinema on the wall.

But a closer look reveals that these people are taking contacts from various notices on the wall advertising jobs and vacancies in the city and its environs.

Vacancies appearing on the glass-sealed notice boards range from plum jobs in city offices, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) and companies looking for drivers, IT managers and even individuals looking for househelps in leafy suburbs.
