Okay so I was just on my own, eating cashew nuts, watching AIT and wondering where we are headed as a nation, then my phone beeps. A mail. It was sent to the Jobzilla official email address (info[at]jobzilla.ng) by Betage Limited otherwise known as BetaAge Consult (BAC).
What’s special about this mail?
It was sent to me from firstname.lastname@example.org and more than 300 other email addresses were copied, inviting us for a job interview at their office located at No. 2, Esther Oshiyemi Street, Opposite Rave TV Media House, Ilupeju-Oshodi Lagos.

Here’s the obvious thing; I never applied for any job at Betage Limited/BetaAge Consult (BAC) using Jobzilla official email address. I mean, why would I do that!
Apparently, Betage Limited/BetaAge Consult (BAC) most probably gathered random emails from all over the internet, composed and sent out a job invitation to them. In fact a notable company was copied in the email too. Who invites a manufacturing company for a job interview?!
Anyways, I did some investigation and discovered that they are a Health and Nutrition products company (something a lot of people prefer to call GNLD Job).
So if you received a mail or SMS from BetaAge, it’s important for you to know exactly what you are going for.
Good luck guys.
