False job offers sent via e-mail using valid company names
Scam artists abound. The Internet is awash with fake e-mails,
popularly called “phishing e-mails" regarding job advertisements
and job offers. These e-mails use valid company names to pretend
they are genuine and exist solely for the purpose of obtaining
private information about consumers (e.g. credit card numbers or
passwords) and for extracting money from victims.
Fake job offers tend to target overseas individuals, as they ask
for money to be sent to them for visa purposes. Our company never
requests payment details in association with any job applications
or any communication related to them. If you receive an
e-mail asking for personal information or financial
information or a payment in respect of a job application or if you
have concerns about the e-mail's authenticity, then please treat
such e-mails with due caution and scepticism.
