LAST week, several infographics on job vacancies and free houses for the people with the picture of Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor on them went viral on social media. Are these offers legitimate?

VERDICT:

FALSE

The Chief Minister's media and communications office said that the infographics, which use the state crest, are "merely clickbait".

"We advise the public to be wary of several infographics on job vacancies and Rumah Mesra SMJ that has the state government's crest accompanied by photographs of Hajiji.

"They are merely clickbait and contain false information to route traffic to a certain website," the office said in a statement last week.

It then added that the link provided in the infographics on the Rumah Mesra SMJ was also fake as it would redirect people to another sham page about vacancies in the Air Force.
