Cyber criminals are sending all sorts of scams related to the pandemic: Malicious websites and phishing attacks are benefitting from the Covid-19 panic, and are targeting people working from home, many of whom face dire financial situations. Scammers are setting up fake charities, advertising fake Covid-19 related products, spreading fake news and luring us with low interest loans or high return investments.
The objectives of these attempts are to steal your money and/or access your personal information.
Sanlam is aware of a recruitment scam on Facebook and WhatsApp where the public is invited to submit their CV’s by either clicking on a link or sending an email to a firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not a Sanlam advertisement nor do we ever require job applicants to pay any fees to secure employment. Consumers are advised to be aware of these fraudulent scams. Job seekers are encouraged to visit the official Sanlam career portal to apply for any vacancies at Sanlam.
