The pages have titles like “Government Jobs Application Page”, “Imisebenzi kagovernment” (“government jobs” in isiZulu), “Imisebenzi” (“jobs”) and “Jobs and careers”.
The posts all give job seekers links to websites where they can supposedly apply for the jobs.
But none of the sites have anything to do with Game stores. Game’s official game website is www.game.co.za.
‘We don’t advertise on Facebook’
Africa Check asked Natasha Robain from Game’s customer care department if the job ads were real.
“Kindly be advised that we do not advertise our vacancies on Facebook or any other social media platform,” she told us.
“If there are any vacancies available, we advertise them on reputable job portals like Pnet, Jobmail and Career24 etc.” – Dancan Bwire

Africa Check teams up with Facebook
Africa Check is a partner in Meta's third-party fact-checking programme to help stop the spread of false information on social media.
The content we rate as “false” will be downgraded on Facebook and Instagram. This means fewer people will see it.
You can also help identify false information on Facebook. This guide explains how.
