Beware of fake job offers looking to scam you

False offers that demand payments

Criminals often try to take advantage of those who try to make money fast, and they place fake job ads. Behind them are “covers” that attract people to give money that they will never get back or organized crimes of human trafficking. Although the media reports the confessions of people who have fallen for the money fraud of fake employers, the situation is still far from optimal.

If the ad promises that you will make a lot of money in a short time, you can suspect that they are trying to deceive you. False advertisements often offer to work only a few hours a day from home. Be aware that no one got rich overnight.

How to spot bogus job offers

No education or experience: In each job advertisement, the employer will state what skills or level of education they need to have for you to be able to perform. There are no suspicious ads that do not contain this component because their goal is to get as many people as possible to respond to the ad. They don’t care what your skills are, and the reason for that is that they’re not offering you a job. They’re trying to cheat.

It is an emergency job ad: Suspicious job advertisements emphasize the urgency of finding the person they should hire.
You need to give them money first- The point of hiring is to get paid, not give someone money. It would be best if you suspected ads like that because, in practice, there are many examples of people who have stumbled upon the stories of “employers” who, for example, asked them to give them money for equipment to start working. But, in practice, these people are left without their money, and the employer no longer contacts them.

Here are a few more tips:

-Never give out bank information during interviews.

  • Check and search that company on the Internet because many of these scams use the names of legitimate companies to trick people.
    -If they offer you a job just based on your CV, check them.
    -If they are giving you a job without an interview, that can not be right.
  • The company is using a free email service
  • Never give your money.
