Many students complain that they have been looking for a full-time job at home for 3 years, and have sent more than 200 resumes, watching others interview smoothly and receive an offer, but they have lost their minds and gradually collapsed.
Remind everyone that the more this time everyone should be more calm, because the criminals are using the anxiety and fear of job seekers to fall into the scammers carefully designed to kill the pig.
Recently, a Chinese student revealed that he received a fake offer and was defrauded of $8,000 in a month, even if the police could not get it back.
Little Red Book users have popularized the use of false internship positions for recruitment fraud, usually for the purpose of identity theft and financial fraud.
First, scam gangs usually start by posting fake internships on linkdein or informal jobboards. These companies may be new, or they may pretend to be a regular company’s name, but use some “high imitation” logo. Job titles and job descriptions look formal, including those with specific requirements, because they are mostly copied and pasted.
When a student expresses interest in a position, the scammer will make a fake interview offer. Usually the students who haven’t got an interview in a long time will be happy and take it lightly. From here, you’re likely to get hooked, with the “recruiter” entering a brief interview over the phone or by email. The fraudster may be pleased to get an offer soon.
“I applied for the post yesterday, and the next day I was admitted, even without an interview.”
“Received an online interview, telephone interview, the results received an offer! Shouldn’t there be three or four rounds of interviews?”
Upon receiving an offer, the scammer will immediately contact you and ask for personal information, such as SIN card, bank account information or other sensitive data, on the basis of a plausible need for onboarding, purchasing office equipment or training ahead of time.
“The company can not provide computers to buy their own, will be reimbursed later. To a variety of information and direct to the phishing site to buy a computer.”
This kind of fraud is relatively easy to see through, mainly exposed to the incompleteness of the interview, usually because the first person to take over the offer, now you can enter the post in three days and so on to give you a sense of pressure.
“Regular companies do not require interns to pad money.”
“Buying your own equipment is also a fake.”
Another type of “check fraud” is much more sophisticated, more difficult to identify, they promise to buy all the office equipment is paid for by the company, easily dispelled the applicant’s concerns.The cheater sent the cheque to the applicant’s account and then transferred to the designated merchant to buy computer equipment.
“I’ve had a case where the scammer gave me a check for $4,000 and I cashed it, but it bounced and the bank withdrew the fee.”
But other students are not so lucky. “Because it did show up on my account before, but I didn’t know that it would take a few days to check the cheque. When the check bounces, all the money transferred can only be borne by yourself. And the cheater has gone.”
“There was no progress in the police intervention, and various bank accounts were emptied for a short time after the identity theft.”Many students say there is no way, can only recognize.
According to revelations, some high-end scams, will not even open their own job post, but to see which big companies have recently opened internships, their own through some linkdein search, locking may be delivered to the company’s classmates, directly click on your personal website such as collections, find resume emails or phone calls, take the initiative to contact.
The email they use will also look professional, and the crazy thing is that they will even arrange a full set of three fake interviews. The examiners will pretend to use the current real employee’s linkdein or open a high imitation linkdein, so that the whole process looks very real. Finally, you may use documign and other documents to do the job.
The above netizens share the real experience, I hope to remind you, please do not let the cheater easily take advantage of your situation and anxiety, so as to steal your personal information caused irreparable property losses.
