The great majority of employers are honest, but it is important for you to recognize the signs of fraud so you can avoid being affected by it. Here are some tips to consider:
If you did not apply for a job or interview and are being emailed by an employer with a job offer this could be an indication that the job offer is fraudulent. Moreover, if the email is not coming from a company email address but a gmail, yahoo, aol etc. then this could potentially be a scam. If you have not applied to a job or had a phone/in-person interview with an employer they should not be asking you for personal information (for e.g.: home address) or financial information (for e.g.: bank account, check routing number).
It is recommended that you do not include a photograph, date of birth, social security, and street address on your resume or reveal that to an employer via email. You could include just your city and state on your resume and reveal your street address during the interview process.
If you are asked to make a payment this could potentially be a sign that the employer is fraudulent. NEVER supply bank account, social security number or credit card or date of birth information. If you unexpectedly receive a large check do not deposit it in your bank. Do not perform any monetary transactions as they could potentially be attempts to scam you.
Watch for anonymity
If an employer is only communicating with you via email and you cannot find the address, actual company name, and contact’s profile online this could potentially be a warning sign. Also if the employer contacts you by phone but there isn’t a way for you to call them back. If the employer claims that they are out of the country and need help in setting up their office in your area. They might claim they need help with errands such as making transactions for them. This is another sign that the job may be fraudulent. Google the employer/individual’s name with the word “scam”.
To Good to be True?
If the job sounds too good to be true, it probably is (for e.g.: “no experience necessary” “earn money fast”).
Evaluating Job Offers
You've been offered a job. Are you are sure the position is a good fit for you?
Before you accept a job offer, ask yourself:
- Do the organization’s business, as well as the tasks and responsibilities of the position, match your interests and beliefs?
- What is the working environment like? What is the “corporate culture” of the business?
- How is the organizational structure? Does your potential manager seem like someone you would get along with?
- What are your co-workers like?
- What are the perks of this job, and how do they stack up to other offers?
- Is the salary fair?
