No, Kenya Airways and China Road & Bridge Corp. Aren’t Teaming Up to Hire New Personnel

Copy of the fake job ad used to lure victims to pay in advance to apply for positions that do not exist.

Kenyan scammers posted a fake job ad that claimed Kenya Airways has partnered with the China Road and Bridge Corporation to hire cleaners, toll attendants, and clerks. More than a dozen positions were advertised all with relatively generous salaries.
