We received information from the public about scam websites and Facebook groups using our company name and logo. We emphasize that these below two do not belong to us. If you suspect you are one of the victims please proceed to make a police report and we are unable to assist you accordingly.
We come across several methods that involve our company name in recent ‘online employment scams’.
Where individuals are invited to sign-up for part-time jobs on eCommerce platforms. They are offered rebates/discounts and also commission for each complete task. Victims are then lured to communicate via WhatsApp and encouraged to make bank transfers to an external account with promises that the amount will be refunded with a commission.
