Scam Alert: Organization requesting for an exam with affiliate scam sites

It has been brought to our notice that an Organization operating under the name "International Medical Corps (IMC)" is requesting for a special psychometric test score from intending jobseekers before they can start work for the Organization.

The Organization claims to be International Medical Corps using the domain - whereas the right Organization uses (notice the hyphen).

We believe that this is wrong on the following grounds:

1. No genuine Organization will request payment from prospective staff before being offered jobs.

2. If they are requiring any special test which is paid for, then the Organization is scam. Any genuine Organization will arrange all required psychometric testing used in their recruitment process and will not charge a fee or refer you to 3rd party website where payment is collected.

2. If an Organization is interested in you, they will train you; else, they will look for trained personnel. A slight exception to this is if the Organization is looking for a special and rare skill and decides to train you. In this case, you will not pay the company in cash, rather you may sign an agreement to work with the Organization for a certain period.

3. Any Organization that requests for money from you - a jobseeker is selfish and will not care about you. The reason you shouldn't risk joining such an Organization if it indeed exists.

We really care about your safety, hence we strongly advise you to stay away from this kind of Organizations and requests.


Find a copy of the email sent out by the purported Organization:

I trust you are fine.
We have reviewed your application, qualifications & experience, and pre- shortlisted you for the Senior Finance Officer Position - based in our regional office in Abuja, Nigeria but with travel on assignment to Co-operating Partner Offices in Kampala, Uganda and Nairobi,Kenya on need basis. 

Find attached to this email our entry assessment form for new staff joining the organization. Fill it honestly and accurately and return the same to me as soon as possible as we need to fill the position very urgently (by 08/01/2018).

For the position, the organization requires your latest Psychometric OPPT score as per the desired qualifications but given the geographical separation, as the recruitment is being done here in the UK, we are unable to conduct the same. 

We request you to submit this together with the filled entry assessment form.
If your OPPT is not ready, please fill & send back to me the new staff entry assessment form but schedule your OPPT with an International invigilator including but not limited to the below invigilators and email me your score as soon as possible;
Albedin Centre
Qrill HR Consultants

Any other accredited OPPT Invigilator is fine as well. Please scan and email the certified OPPT score to reach me on or before close of business Friday 29th December 2017 if you would wish to proceed with the recruitment process.

Wishing you all the best in remaining application processes. International Medical Corps is an equal opportunity employer. Any solicitation will lead to disqualification.
