Scenario of a Job Scam

Sofea had stumbled upon a job advert via social media that did not require any experience or qualification. Seeing as this was something easy and interesting, and where she could generate supplemental income, she therefore replied to the job advert.


Soon after, she was invited to join a chat group; where she would be coached on the required task(s) to be performed i.e. making “advance payments” to purchase items online and the guarantee of commission earned from these purchases.


She proceeds to perform the task, and immediately earns her commission. Thereafter, she is encouraged to make bigger purchases, but, once these payments are performed, she did not earn her commission. She was unable to contact with the group admin and she has just now become a victim.
