Recruitment scams are on the rise, and it is essential to stay vigilant. In recent years, scammers have become increasingly sophisticated in their tactics, making it harder for candidates and clients to differentiate between recruitment agencies like us and fraudulent ones.
Protecting yourself from recruitment scams involves being aware of the warning signs and taking proactive steps to safeguard your personal information.
Typically, scammers will make initial contact via text message, WhatsApp, or Telegram, impersonating a recruiter and offering a fake job. Their objective is to trick you into sharing your personal information. It's advisable not to respond to these types of messages or share any personal information such as your CV or financial details.
Other warning signs include spontaneous messages from unknown numbers or email addresses that offer unrealistic salaries or working arrangements, poorly written adverts with spelling errors, requests for money, or messages containing links that could contain malware that could be installed on your device.
Please note we will never request payment from candidates and all our email correspondence will come from the official Jobwise domain: email@example.com.
If something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Preventing recruitment scams is always better than trying to recover from the damage they can cause.
