Low-cost airline Mango has urged the public to ignore current fraudulent advertising offering internships and job opportunities at the airline.
The advertisement and subsequent correspondence with applicants ultimately requires administration fees and promises training, employment guarantees and in some instances accommodation and subsistence allowances.
The scam has impacted other airlines recently.
“We urge people not to respond to the fraudulent ads,” says spokesperson Hein Kaiser, who advises that any queries or communication must either be directed to or be received from official Mango channels.
“The email addresses indicated on the fraudulent advertisement originate from a free-service e-mail domain; and is not associated with flymango.com.”
He adds that should anyone doubt the authenticity of communication, to contact the airline immediately.
Several enquiries, as a consequence of the fraudulent advertisement, have been received from all over the country during the last week.
