How can I take prevention against fraudsters?

It has come to our attention that there are Conmen who are using and abusing our publication to cheat and steal from people. They will call or text and ask you to meet them, then persuade you to pay a certain fee before filling the forms for a vacancy. After receiving the payment, they disconnect their numbers so there is no way to catch them.

Please do not respond to such calls; they are not genuine.

Job Seekers: Please insist to be interviewed in a known office, try to get the right telephone numbers, preferably a landline, the exact name of the company and the person in charge. Do not pay any advance fees to fill any forms unless you are contacted by recruitment agencies. Do not schedule a meeting in a dubious place or respond to any beepers.

Property Seekers: Please try to get the full details of the landlords/agents, such as full name, photocopy of an ID/passport, title, deed, bank account, exact location/address of the property prior to making any payments.

Car Rentals: Do not respond to anybody who will try to convince you to agree to a higher rental and split the difference.

What is your refund policy?

Once a payment has been made, we do not issue refunds for any reason.

In case of any discrepancies caused by our team, we shall compensate in the form of adverts. We do not give cash back as refunds.
