Score of young people were instructed to return home by Anglo Platinum Mine following an employment scam, these young adults were very optimistic about finding new work and they thought that they had found an opportunity to do so unfortunately this is the result of the rushing to trust anything which is posted on social media.
This advertisement was shared on social media in Mokopane under the Mogalakwena local Municipality unfortunately a lot of the youth believed it and it later turned out that the whole thing was a hoax, perhaps the people were behind this scam had benefitted immensely from the activities of these individuals.
The suspects who had developed the scam where basically targeting these individuals and they wanted some form of payment, so we believe that these individuals could have managed to have gotten away with hundreds of thousands of rands.
The Anglo platinum mine has deployed the police service to disperse the crowds and has further issued a statement that the advertised job posts are scam and they are not hiring, everyone who was present - we had people coming from faraway places in order to come to that company so that they can get employment and they were completely disappointed.
