Cons target youth with unreal aviation jobs

SAAJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE South African Airways (SAA) has warned the public of the re-emergence of a recruitment scam inviting youths to apply for cabin crew training programme.
The airline says this appears yet another attempt by criminals to prey on unsuspecting members of the public.
The scam seems to be targeted at young people of school-leaving age, notably those who may be finishing their matric and are on the lookout for employment opportunities.
“There is neither recruitment nor training programmes for cabin crew positions at SAA at the moment,” confirms SAA Spokesperson, Tlali Tlali.
He urged the public to exercise caution and take additional measures to satisfy themselves about the authenticity of vacancies before responding to invitations to submit applications for possible employment.
“This may be an inconvenient, yet necessary step to take,” warns Tlali.
SAA has placed a moratorium on employing additional personnel, as part of the airline’s efforts to manage its costs.
“Even if recruitment were to take place, the procedures we follow are different from those set out in this misleading scam,” Tlali says.
