what is a job scam?

These scams often involve online job ads on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn that offer jobs that do not exist. Scammers will ask victims to transfer or remit a small sum of money to secure the fake interview or job.

how to spot fake job postings?

1. If money is involved. You’ve been asked to transfer money for medical check, work pass application or to attend the job interview
2. The company has no website or official/corporate social media account
3. Job offer sent from a personal email domain or a “noreply” email
4. You did not apply for the job
5. The job is too good to be true
6. Job description is unclear or too short
7. Poor use of the English language with multiple typos and grammatical errors in the job advertisement
8. You found the job posting in a random social media community
9. Communication channels are usually social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn.

When looking for a job, please do not follow unsolicited Facebook groups that promote fraudulent job advertisements. We also do not recommend individuals to respond to sketchy job offers in email or suspicious job postings on social media channels or cross-platform messaging services or reply to fake job calls from unknown numbers.

Remember that it is never safe to disclose your personal and/or banking details to anyone you do not know.
