Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD) is serving notice to prospective job seekers to beware of fraudsters and scammers who are extorting huge sums of monies from job seekers in exchange of job placement at COCOBOD.
The fraudsters use names of high profile persons (chiefs, CEOs of Public Institutions, politicians, the clergy and other opinion leaders) to lure unsuspecting job seekers into sending monies through mobile money platforms for job interviews and placement at COCOBOD.
COCOBOD will like to reiterate that it has not instructed any person or group of persons to solicit for applications for job interviews and/or placement at COCOBOD.
As a corporate entity, all job vacancies at COCOBOD are advertised through the National Dailies.
COCOBOD is, therefore, advising all job seekers to be wary of such fraudsters, and same to the Police. We will also continue to work closely with the law enforcement agencies to bring such scammers to book.
