But the fraudsters will provide the fresher a job with 75,000 rupees per month salary, fraudsters will offer high jobs even for an entry-level, it is definitely a sign of a scam.

For instance, the fraudulent employer promises that you will only have to work only for two or three days per week and you can earn more income. If the recruiter confirms the salary with you before you send your resume, is a sign of a scam.

✔ Payments Before Pay checks

Still, there are many things you have to clarify before accepting the job offer. The company also requests payment from you to send you the offer letter. Be careful of any company or recruiter that requires a payment from you. If the company or an employer is truly legitimate, then they will never ask you for any payment. The job position can be anything and anywhere but you should not agree to pay for an interview or accept a job.

They may also tell you that you can get into your job in your favorite location after some waiting period. Now the candidates get so impressed and start imagining their dream city. These fake words corrupt the human mind and make them say okay. Some companies also ask candidates to sign contracts. They promise you to like for the first three months your income will be 15,000 rupees and after the provisioning period, your salary will be increased to 75,000rupees.

These words change the mind of the candidate to think about the lavish lifestyle. The candidates unexpectedly and unintentionally fall into their words and become eager to accept the offer. This is how the scammer works with candidates to theft money from them. If you feel that the job offer feels more than a little unprofessional, just go and research the company and make a clear decision. Finding out more about the company makes it easy to judge its originality.

✔ Avoid a fake check scam

In addition you should observe with a calm and sound mind and listen to their communication like their promises and questions,their job offer with contact details and other information about the company. If you find anything suspicious or you find the company's information is missing, go with an internet search and check the company website or email address.

After so many searches you still cannot find any basic information about the organization, like name, staff members, or other details, it is better to move on to your next opportunity.The scammer requests some confidential information like financial details before hiring.

When a company recruits new employees, it is required to submit the tax documents and bank information for a direct deposit but it is not required at the initial stage of the process. This information is mandatory to submit once you sign an employer's offer and start your job. Just quit the offer and proceed to the next step if a recruiter asks for any personal details like social security number or bank account number or any other personal or financial information.
