  1. Its unfortunate that women easily get cheated be at in the community, work places, churches. All these frauds are being caused by desperations. In some cases people were being asked to part away with ma K10,000 as inducement to be included on recruitment list. My nice was nearly swindled but advised that there is no need and it ha never happened where one has to pay a certain amount to be employed in govt.
