USAID has recently been notified of an ongoing email SCAM using USAID’s name and logo to defraud individuals seeking jobs. The scam is completely false and has no connection to USAID or the U.S. Government. The scammer is trying to trick individuals to pay money in order to obtain a job with USAID. Please note that USAID and the U.S. Government NEVER requires payment of any money in connection with a job application; Furthermore, USAID and the U.S. Government do not require beneficiaries of USAID programs to pay funds in order to receive assistance.
USAID and the U.S. government regret that unscrupulous individuals are using USAID’s name and logo to defraud their fellow citizens. USAID has notified Mozambican authorities of this fraud and they are investigating the case. If you have been affected by this scam, USAID recommends you report it to local authorities.
