Recruitment fraud is serious. We want to let you know how to protect yourself from getting scammed and falling victim to recruitment fraud. Recruitment fraud is true and exists all over the world where criminals contact unsuspecting candidates using fraudulent websites, emails, text messages and fake online interviews by claiming to be representatives of Multi Recruit.
They lead with a job offer or a scheduled interview and ultimately request for sensitive financial information and sometimes ‘refundable deposits’ into unknown accounts.
Here are some tips to help you deal with suspicious Job offers, Links or mails
- Never engage with the original sender.
- Never reply or forward the suspected email.
- All job listings, alerts and any other information we wish to pass on you will be available in your profile dashboard that you signed up for on our website.
- Any job opportunity, website or email that does not direct back to Multi Recruit’s website www.multirecruit.com is fraudulent.
- Multi Recruit does not confirm employment through text and online messaging. We only provide job alerts and interview alerts.
- Multi Recruit does not ask job applicants for any kind of financial information relating to bank accounts, passwords, debit, and credit cards.
- We do not ask our applicants to purchase software or equipment.
- We do not confirm employment without having an in-person interview. All communications, through phone or email, will be direct to the applicant, from our hiring managers which will include their name and other details.
- We encourage our candidates to verify the name, title, address, phone number, etc. of representatives claiming to be our employees.
- Watch out for incorrect grammar or unusual or informal language. Please be warned by someone who offers you an interview or a job without proper grammar in their communications.
What is Spoofing?
Spoof emails (hoax or phishing e-mails) appear to be known and legitimate companies. As a bait to trap, you will receive an e-mail confirming your job offer in that company and then ask you to click onto a link that trails back to the spoof website to provide your personal information.
Sometimes, by just clicking the link enables thieves to access your computer to record your keystrokes to capture your logins and passwords. Beware of spoofed web forms that ask for sensitive information that no legitimate company would ask their customer to provide for any reason. Spoofing emails lack language proficiency, they may contain spelling and grammatical errors, and the tone of the email is generally urgent, and they often warn you of charging you money if you fail to respond.
Our goal is to make you aware of these fraudulent practices and thus prevent you from becoming a victim.
We hope to entirely stop these activities from being perpetrated on our unsuspecting patrons.
