The City of Johannesburg and Pikitup has learned about the unfortunate prevalence of scams meant to defraud desperate unemployed people of huge sums of money based on empty promises of employment in the company.
The management of Pikitup places on record that it is not hiring at this stage. In the event that Pikitup does hire, it advertises the positions in national newspapers and on its website. It does not expect unemployed people to pay to apply for positions.
Pikitup advises people who have been approached to pay between R1000 and R8000, to gain employment by unscrupulous scammers not to pay, but to report such criminal activities to the police.
The scammers are apparently prevalent in the Randburg and Orange Farm areas.
The scammers do not represent Pikitup and in the event that the company has vacancies, such positions are advertised internally and externally. No money is required to apply for vacancies. Pikitup distances itself from these activities.
