Forum Job Offer Fraud under the name of SGS Nigeria?

It seems that we received fraudulent job offers under the name of SGS Nigeria.

I removed the following post:

at 10:28 Mar-06-2013
Amadi Igochukwu, igochukwuamadi@yahoo.com> (SGS)
LRUT Level 2 Operator needed

(he had a profile in MyNDT that I removed)

Furthermore I am still seeking for evidence if posts of George Mclean (george.mclean@sgs.com) are correct.

It is a problem if I do not receive an answer when I ask for a verification of a post. Also from george.mclean@sgs.com i received no reply on three emails. I think we should not allow anymore job offers by using anonymous email accounts.

Rolf,
Most times i am on the field performing some job for my company and with limited acces to my emails. I think there should be a specified time frame for verification of post. I have gotten lots of call asking me about the so called "fraudulent job offer under the name of SGS".

Thanks,

Amid,

I gave you 4 days to send a verification that shows that you are working with SGS. Since 19. 3. I asked george.maclean@sgs.com three times to confirm that you are working with SGS. The email address george.maclean@sgs.com posted about 30 jobs since 2010. I felt very strange that george.maclean@sgs.com did not answered within 10 days although he is a frequently forum user. Then I phoned to SGS Nigeria but the switchboard was not willing to connect me to somebody, although I pointed out that we have to speak about a legal issue. I cannot make more efforts.
For job offers I will not allow anymore email addresses of anonymous email provider with the exception that the person send another testimonial that verifies the company.

Rolf

It would seem more appropriate to use the words "possible or alleged" prior to the word fraud. We don't all have access to computers all the time. The field work in our line, especially offshore or out of country make that a fact.

Hi yes my messages were correct, I have since moved on from SGS to STIS so any coming through from today are legit.
