Recruitment fraud

Recruitment fraud is an illegal scam that exploits job seekers into providing personal information or money for fraudulent ‘job opportunities’ on recruitment websites. This kind of fraud is usually done through unsolicited emails and text messages, or through fake websites and social media accounts posing as a company. Those engaging in this illegal activity may request personal or sensitive information with the intent of gaining access to your bank information, credit card number or social security number.

Some examples may include, but are not limited to, asking you to make financial payments for travel expenses or “new hire” computer equipment.
