IFC warns of job scams in Tanzania


By Rosemary Mirondo

Dar es Salaam. The International Finance Corporation (IFC) has alerted the public of an online jobs scam, with unknown individuals and entities impersonating the organisation and seeking payments from those applying for jobs.

According to a statement from IFC, the scammers have created a series of fake websites, emails, job offer letters, and URLs falsely claiming to be from IFC in Tanzania.

The agency further denied that it is involved with any of these websites or the call for applications.

“We strongly caution the public to be wary of these and other individuals or groups that falsely claim to be associated with IFC or other members of the World Bank Group,” read part of the statement.

Further the statement read that IFC would never request cheques, money transfers, bank statements or other personal financial information to secure a job or to conduct background checks.

It adds: IFC has a standard and elaborate job application process for potential employees seeking IFC jobs.
IFC is a member of the World Bank Group—is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets.

They work in more than 100 countries, using capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries.

During the fiscal year 2021, IFC committed a record $31.5 billion to private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity as economies grapple with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
