There are fraudulent recruiters using our name and identify to con unsuspecting Kenyans who are looking for employment.
These fraudulent recruiters are preying upon the hopes and aspirations of individuals who are earnestly seeking employment, subjecting them to financial loss, and in some cases, emotional distress.
They do this without any form of mercy and pity. Despite the fact that most of these money or valuables could have been borrowed.
These scammers pose as Pata Kazi or Opportunities for Young Kenyans on different social media platforms.
But it is very easy to spot them, because unlike us, they will be quick to ask money from you or any other valuables so as to expedite and circumvent the hiring process.
They make sweet promises, but once the payments are made, they all suddenly disappear.

Medical documents should only be obtained from government hospitals or government approved health centres. Company uniforms and badges shouldn’t be paid in advance at whatsoever reason.
