newsNews24 reports that the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) on Thursday warned that two individuals were scamming young people by promising them fake jobs at the organisation.  

The individuals, who called themselves Stephen and Sherinne, claim they are working for the CSIR recruitment office.  Spokesperson David Mandaha explained:  "According to the information we have, Stephen finds young, job-seeking ladies on social media platforms.  Then Sherinne contacts them for a 'telephonic interview.  After the interview, Stephen asks to meet with the 'candidate' at a certain location, where he demands sex in order to secure the 'job'."  The CSIR is aware of one university student who had come forward after being scammed.  The CSIR only advertised its jobs in mainstream newspapers, on its official social media platforms, and on its website, www.csir.co.za.
