Beware: latest fraud scam – Fake bursary scheme

July 2017

It has been brought to our attention that fraudsters are using the name of Barloworld to scam members of the public, by setting up “fake” interviews at Barloworld premises to participate in a bursary scheme in exchange for payment.

An incident took place at a Barloworld Power site in Durban last week when an unknown individual arrived for an “interview” together with a Barloworld application form and proof of payment, indicating that a number of other individuals were also expected to attend such interviews.

Security and receptionists at respective sites must be informed of the scam so as to appropriately communicate with such individuals and advise scammed individuals arriving at Barloworld sites to report the matter to the local SAPS.  

Should any Barloworld Equipment or Barloworld Power site encounter this scam, please notify the office of the Group Compliance Manager: VPanday@barloworld-equipment.com
