Seems this scam thing on job seekers is now on the rise.
I saw a vacancy online and told a friend about it. The company supposedly is situated in Lagos but since I reside in Ibadan I decided to inform my friend there who is equally job searching to try out the opening. The application process requires any interested applicant to go to their office to pick up an application form.
The company's name is Sonips Resources Company LTD. They are meant to be located around Agidingbi Ikeja. The vacancies advertised includes Customer Service officers, Operations officers, Sales/marketing agents, Security agents and drivers.
My friend was interested in applying for the customer service officer position but on getting there he was asked to pay the sum of 1000naira. He was perplexed so he asked why. He was told that there were even other positions that were charged 2000naira so why was he complaining. And that there was no way he would be allowed to take the test if he was invited unless he paid the amount. He decided to pay because he felt it will help him stand a better chance.
The question is, is there any reason an employer should charge job applicants money for them to have a chance at the job? I see no difference between this Sonips' deal that job test scam in kaduna (Nobleone).
Anyone with any credible information about this Sonips company should please indicate. If not then I would advise everyone to stay clear. Scammers must not continue to thrive on the despair of innocent jobseekers.
