Email Job Offer Scam

There are fake e-mails and fraudulent job offer campaigns circulating on the internet from people pretending to represent West Pack Lifestyle. These are hoaxes. Please ignore any request to send your personal details or make any payment whatsoever. We would never operate in this way.

These adverts encourage you to apply for non-existent jobs at West Pack Lifestyle by emailing a gmail email address (eg westpackvancies@gmail.com). However, you have to pay a deposit fee for a background check before you can start. The email states that before the training date you are required to pay a R250 deposit fee for background checks. You are then encouraged to make payment of the deposit at a PEP store with the code 2020, and to email the proof of payment to westpackcheck@gmail.com, This is false information by a scam artist and has no connection whatsoever to West Pack Lifestyle. We would never request anyone to pay any fee to be considered for a job interview.
In reality, you are not being considered for a job opportunity with West Pack Lifetsyle, but rather you may have been tricked into sending money to a scam artist. West Pack Lifestyle conducts its own recruitment and any request for an interview will always come from an @westpacklifestyle.co.za email. Never from a @gmail.com email address.


If you were contacted by email from a Gmail address, you can report abuse to help Google take appropriate action on accounts involved in this scam. If you have received or are aware of this type of communication and have concerns, please report it to us so we can pursue potential legal action against fraudsters. Please email comms@westpacklifestyle.co.za
