Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Beware of the fake employment offers from individuals posing as representatives of the company.
Scammers pose as recruiters and offer fake job opportunities to obtain payments from job seekers. This is especially popular for supposed employment opportunities abroad. The scam starts with a fake job advertisement and then asks interested applicants for payment for various “requirements” like a certification, travel or work permit, and/ or seminar fee. Once payment is done, the recruiter suddenly stops any communication.
If the job offer you received was online. It is good that you check the following:
Do you recognize it? Ensure you check the actual address insteasd of the display name.
Check if the sender asks in the content of the email for any confidential information. This may include details such as your credit card, bank account, or insurance number.
Is the email addressed to you specifically? Scammers often user "Dear Sir/Madam" or "To whom it may concern," or may misspell your name.
Does the email contain obvious spelling and grammar inconsistencies? Scammers often use google translate or like services to draft their messages.
