Be careful Job scams and employment fraud

Source: admin Release Time: 22:16:59 2019-03-25

Looking for a new job can be both stressful and exciting with individuals eager to believe the perfect job is out there for them – even if it sounds unlikely or unrealistic. Fraudsters often recruit for a ‘dream job’, advertising roles with a starting salary of around £100,000 that require few qualifications, skills or experience. Sound too good to be true? Unfortunately, that’s because it most probably is.

When you’re focussed on getting a new job, the desire to believe that something is legitimate is very strong, which is what the fraudsters rely on. This could be due to people feeling overly hopeful or optimistic that despite suspicions, the job may still be real.

What does a job scam look like?
you’re asked for money by fraudsters to write your CV or carry out
security and police checks
you’re asked to pay for expensive training programmes which don’t exist
for overseas jobs, fraudsters require you to pay for immigration lawyers
again for overseas jobs, fraudsters ask you to pay for travel-agent fees.

Money laundering fraudsters employ you on a work-from-home basis. You assume that you’re employed in a genuine job, but you’re really being used to launder money

you’re asked to buy office equipment and ship it to a specific address, or cash a cheque not knowing you’re actually committing a crime in the process.
