The office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Malawi has warned Malawians against bogus adverts circulating on various social media.
According to a statement issued on Thursday, there is a bogus advert circulating on the social media indicating that UNDP wishes to recruit Food Security Enumerators.
“The UNDP in Malawi wishes to categorically disassociate itself from an advert and call for job applications circulating on the social media in the name of UNDP,” reads the statement in part.
Malawi, the world’s poorest, is facing one of the highest unemployment rates.
The statement states that UNDP has learnt with great concern that some people are calling for job applications for the post of Food Security Enumerators to [email protected].
“UNDP has no official ‘Yahoo’ address and has not issued any advert on the above position (Food Security Enumerators)”.
The statement further reminds Malawians that all UNDP job opportunities are placed in the newspapers and on its Malawi and global UNDP websites-www.mw.undp.org.
This comes barely weeks after the Malawian High Commission Office in
United Kingdom (UK) warned Malawians against purchasing vehicles from
UK and Republic of Ireland to be vigilant enough as most of the purported online traders could be bogus.
This followed considerable number of reports and requests from Malawians back home asking authorities at the UK Embassy to trace traders whom they had already paid money for trucks and other vehicles that are yet to be delivered.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
