There have been too many reports and lamentations of people in the possession of false fraud firms who invite people to meet only to expose them to bogus product selling business.
I am doing so not just because such businesses are wasting the time , effort and T-fair of people heading to these interviews, but also because most of these scammers are extorting money from hapless work seekers, thereby rendering their misery times two.
Imagine a scammer extorting # 10,500 from a candidate who has been unemployed for years, not to think of the lost bus ride heading to these fruitless interviews or speaking work as they generally term it.
Some people also borrow money in wolves’ clothes to compensate for these goats, which guarantees them paradise on earth. Others would inform you that within 1 month you can earn half a million, and all that.
If you’re not patient, you ‘re going to take a loan that you won’t be able to repay, thus creating shame and loss of rest. An unemployed individual would just have to think about himself, not even have debts.
And I guess if we’re well driven, we ‘re not going to slip into these scammers’ pockets.
Having said that, there are forms of recognizing a bogus or fraud invitation to interview and preventing these wasting of time and resources in the first place. The nice news is that much of their posts are in the same style, so you’re going to recognize their false!
1. The response will not contain a name for the company: most of these scammers do not have their names on the letter you get. The username, time and date, and a phone number are what you’ll see. A legitimate business does not mask its existence from a prospective employee.
2. The notification would say “interview / work briefing”: I don’t know which task briefing entails!
3. A tag or relation is shown: anything like “HR=0056” or “REF=002.” This is a code number indicator of the individual who invited you to the “work briefing”
4. It should have a phone number: this is your referrer ‘s address. Many real businesses don’t offer phone numbers.
5. Instead of business name you can see HR Admin in the response
6. If you dial their number they would be hesitant to provide the organization with details.
And pls, disregard the men on the streets distributing work flyers and others they ‘re fastening on doors. There are also scammers, including certain ritualists. Although most so-called organizations are also avenues for duping naive work seekers. Pls glow all over your skin.
