This is completely false. This scammer is NOT employed by us. He’s misspelling our brand name (“Jobmail”) and the page that you end up on is a clone of the Job Mail log-in page (and the domain is not owned by us).
Take note that Job Mail will NEVER send out an e-mail requesting registered recruiters to change their password. Job Mail e-mails will always have the Job Mail logo (if it is not a text only e-mail client), will always be sent from our domain (jobmail.co.za) and will always link to only Job Mail pages on the Job Mail domain (jobmail.co.za)
If you have received this phishing e-mail please DON’T respond to it. Don’t click on the links of the email or log into the page that opens if you click on the link.
If you have received the phishing email and have clicked on the link, please change your password immediately by going to the following link: https://www.jobmail.co.za/retrieve-lost-employer-password
If you are ever unsure if an e-mail you received is from Job Mail, please forward the email to email@example.com and ask if it did before taking any other action.
Don’t get caught by this phishing scam! Remember: Be Smart! Be Savvy! Be Safe!
