  • Desmond2 5 Jun 2015, 08:08 AM

    I went there this morning and demanded to see my file, wich they could not provide. I confronted the person in charge and he simply told me that he don't need my R500 because a lot of fools will hand over their money. The passages were full of desperate job seekers and although I warned them they would not believe me.

  • palesa12 21 May 2015, 04:36 PM

  • Job Seeker March 18 Mar 2015, 02:27 PM

    I Received an SMS from this cell number : 073 991 9838. Date 18 March 2015 The SMS : Please bring your updated CV at OTTAWA, office 410 ,president and small street, J.H.B C.B.S tomorrow morning, 7am.for permant job,REFF: JN040 My comments. This is a very stupid SMS and very poor in presentation and grammar. I immediately suspected that it was a scam and googled the address and found that it is indeed a scam Please be careful out there. It is understandable in our times that there area a lack of jobs and an even bigger amount of desperate job seekers. If there are no official trademarks of an professional company or you suspect that it is a scam. Please do some research first and advice others of the scam as it can help save alot of people
