West Hills Mall warns public about “false job openings”


Accra, Aug 3, GNA – The Management of West
Hills Mall has dismissed an unauthorised and false announcement flaunting
several job openings and attractive terms of service to the public.

Management has, therefore, urged the public to
ignore any fraudulent notice posted on various social media platforms
announcing a wide range of job vacancies and employment opportunities at the

Mr Michael Oduro Konadu, the Marketing Manager
of West Hills Mall, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra,
advised job seekers to report any related dealings to the Police.

He said management was not responsible for
recruiting personnel or workers for its tenants and that the real purpose of
the advert was to extort monies from innocent job-seekers as an amount of Gh¢70.00
was demanded by the fraudsters as ‘registration fee’.

“It is a ridiculous scam which smacks of
ignorance about how the mall operates, but if the fraudsters are not exposed
sooner, it is possible that certain individuals, especially the youth and some
desperate job-seekers, may easily fall for it,” Mr Jonathan Lotter, the Centre
Manager, has said.

The statement said on July 24, 2017, a
suspicious announcement promising the availability of a wide range of job
openings was posted on Facebook and has, since last Sunday, gone virile across
most social media platforms, particularly on Whatsapp.

The post announces employment opportunities in
categories including IT engineers, waiters and waitresses, plumbers,
secretaries, security drivers, beauticians, and receptionists and promises free
meals, accommodation and “on the job tuition” for successful job applicants.

It also promises a salary for prospective
workers ranging from Gh¢150.00 to Gh¢600.00 and directed interested persons to
call or make inquiries from “the resource manager” whose number was given as:
0556 186 250.

“The Weija District Police Headquarters is on
the alert and is working to track down the source of the false announcement.’’
