Heritage warns of fake recruitment and employment promises


    Heritage Petroleum is warning of individuals and organizations that are soliciting large sums of money from unsuspecting jobseekers.

    According to Heritage, false recruitment orientations are being hosted and false promises being made for employment at the company.

    What’s more, it says the individuals are using the names and contact information of actual Heritage employees to solicit money.

    Heritage says payments of any kind are not part of its recruitment process and warns that absolutely no one is authorized to accept or request funds in return for employment at the company.

    As such, it says persons acting legitimately on behalf of Heritage will not request cash or any related benefit from anyone in connection with any job prospect or otherwise.

    The company has since referred the matter to the Police Service and Fraud Squad.
