This hassle of job seekers is becoming favor to a set of job scam operators, who take advantage on fresh graduates and even experienced professionals, with an ultimate goal of getting them ripped off. These scammers make you fall into their trick by making upbeat promises about your chances of employments and make you pay for the job that you will ever get. Below, we have disclosed the most common job scams that often threat the innocent job seekers.

The fraternity of bogus job offers constitutes a pervasive threat in the employment landscape, preying on the aspirations of job seekers with deceptive schemes. Scammers, often operating within a clandestine network, exploit the desperation for employment by crafting enticing yet fraudulent job opportunities. These offers, characterized by unrealistically high salaries, vague job descriptions, or requests for upfront payments, aim to deceive individuals into divulging personal information or making financial contributions. The perpetrators employ sophisticated tactics, including phishing emails, fake job postings, and identity theft attempts, weaving a web of deceit that puts unsuspecting job seekers at risk. To navigate this treacherous landscape, individuals must exercise vigilance, verify the legitimacy of job offers, and rely on reputable job platforms to thwart the tactics employed by this insidious fraternity of job scams.

The "Fraternity of Bogus Job Offers" refers to a network of deceptive schemes that exploit individuals seeking employment. Scammers within this fraternity create fake job postings, promising lucrative opportunities to attract unsuspecting job seekers. These fraudulent offers may involve work-from-home scams, where applicants are enticed with unrealistic salaries or benefits, or phishing emails that aim to collect personal information.

The perpetrators often employ tactics such as advance fee scams, requesting payment for fake background checks or training materials, leading to financial loss for the victims. To protect against the "Fraternity of Bogus Job Offers," individuals should thoroughly research potential employers, use reputable job platforms, be skeptical of unsolicited job offers, avoid upfront payments, and carefully scrutinize job postings for red flags. Vigilance and cautiousness are crucial in navigating the job market and avoiding falling prey to these deceptive practices.

Red flags that indicate job scams:

Requesting payments to get you hired:

Scammers' approach you with high pay job offering that often don't exist telling that you are the perfect candidate that they are searching for and you are meeting their search criteria exactly. These con artists first allure you with their fake promises and once you get convinced with their speech, they will slowly unveil their trick by asking you pay money for the training materials and other paper works that are truly illegitimate, once you pay for it you will never see that money again and the fraudulent job provider too.

Asking credit card and bank account information

Job scammers are too tricky than any other scammers, they make you believe that it is a genuine employment offer and sometimes to an extreme case, they will even cheat you saying that you are hired without interview as you have good scores in your academics. If you decide to take up their offer, cunningly they will ask your bank account details and credit card details upfront for paying you the salary that you will never receive.

Call letter from non business e-mail address:

Genuine companies will have their company's name as the ending of their e-mail address. If you are getting a call letter from any non company email address that uses Hotmail or Gmail extension, then you need to double check its credentials.

Interview through IM:

Most of the companies will recruit candidates through direct face to face interview while some uses telephonic or sky interviews for the recruitment but no company will ask you to take up the interview via IM. In case you come across any such job offering kindly ignore it as this clearly indicates that it is a job scam.

Shield yourselves from job scams:

Get the full details and check the authenticity of the company that knocks your door with placement offer, before making a deal. Never take up the job offer that arrives with an attractive salary package that is quite greater than the normal since most scammers use this financial weapon to get you trapped. Never disclose your credit card and other personal information until you visit the company directly and make sure that it is a legitimate one. Until you believe them, these job scammers will scam you since your blind trust on them is their biggest strength. People's desire to get quick jobs without much effort and to earn more in short period of time is the reason that gets them victimized in job scams. So always search for a job that fits your qualification and efficiency in genuine way.
