Important Notice: WhatsApp Scams

We have been made aware that there are a number of scam messages being sent across WhatsApp and Telegram where the sender impersonates recruiters and recruitment companies, including Bright Purple.

They are promoting fake job ads and trying to obtain personal information from the recipient.  You can read more in this WhichImage of mobile phone against a blue background, with a hand underneath the phone. Warning message floating above phone that says !SCAM ALART. ? article.
