Protect Yourself from Employment Fraud
Finding a job can be a frustrating experience that exposes you to the danger of fraud. When job hunting, beware of employment scams. Here are some:
- You are told to pay a fee in order to apply for a job.
- You are asked to give your personal information “for the human resources department.” Actually the intention is to steal your identity.
- You receive a job offer that promises a large pay cheque in return for little or no work.
- The employer offering you a job has no physical address or contact person.
