Investigation

We investigated the advertisement by searching it on the official website of World Health Organization (WHO). We couldn’t find any such job posting.

The social media handles of WHO also didn’t have any such job posting.

We further checked by clicking on the link which was mentioned as the application process.

The application process prompted to enter name, age, contact details and city name. It further displayed the message: “Share this news with your Whatsapp friends to get this job offer.”

We checked the details of the website using Whois tool. We found that the website was created on August 12, 2019.

We contacted WHO and the spokesperson of organization stated: “This is spam. WHO has not made any such advertisement.”

World Health Organization has also warned people on its official website to beware of criminals pretending to represent the World Health Organization (WHO).
