AngloGold Ashanti Obuasi mine cautions on recruitment scam


AngloGold Ashanti (Ghana) Limited (the “Company”) wishes to inform the general public that it has come to its notice that some parties and/or individuals, unrelated to the Company, have been using names of several people who are related to the company in one way or the other to extort monies from the unsuspecting public under the pretext of securing jobs for them at the company.

The company had previously put out several announcements regarding the activities of fraudsters who have been posting online job vacancies in the name of the Company.

These individuals and/or companies write to unsuspecting job seekers either on a fraudulently designed AngloGold Ashanti letterhead or the letterhead of other “intermediary” organisations (local and/or international).

These job vacancies are false and those involved have not been contracted to recruit on behalf of the Company or its mines (Obuasi or Iduapriem). As AngloGold Ashanti (Ghana) Limited is seeking to commence the Obuasi Redevelopment Project, there is the likelihood of the resurgence of such activities. AngloGold Ashanti would want to establish that, all job opportunities in the Company and its subsidiaries would be published on the Careers Page of the Company’s official website  and through print media outlets.

Members of the public who wish to verify the authenticity of job vacancy advertisements are encouraged to contact telephone numbers +233302743400-1 to verify.

Please take further note that AngloGold Ashanti will never request payment of any fees as part of its recruitment process.  If any member of the public has fallen victim to this scam, please report to the Police. The Company has reported this to the appropriate authorities and is working with them to bring the perpetrators to book.
