Fake Job Application

By Odesi Desko

Fake job offers have been going on for years. It is especially designed for people who are out-of-work or looking for an additional income. Unfortunately, these offers usually require the applicant to produce some money before starting or to provide a complete resume.

Don’t trust any company or job offer that asks you for money up front. No real, legitimate job will make you pay to apply for it. This manner of scam has cost a lot of people all of their money. Also be wary of jobs that come from overseas.

One of the fake job offers that one often sees advertised is addressing envelopes at home. This requires hours of work with little or no return. Usually the applicant must pay high postage fees and, many times, is not paid after doing the work.

Today’s economic climate doesn’t help. The job market is weak, and many people are left desperate for employment. Naturally, with so many people so desperate and willing to believe, scam artists have been given fertile ground to dupe with. There are more fake job scams around than just addressing envelopes at home. Another popular scam is people seeking others to construct various crafts and other such items. Eventually, a so-called “employer” will call to discuss employment opportunity. This is a great time to use telephone look up services such as reverse-tele-search.com/509/764/ to find out who is really calling you, and if they’re really who they say they are and if they really want to hire you for real work.

In responding to a job offer it is important that one be careful of what personal information is given out. While legitimate companies ask for things like a social security number and details of previous employment, con-artists will use this information for identity theft and other illegal activities. It is best to only give this kind of information out on a face-to-face basis.

The Internet is a great place for real companies to find good employees. However, at the same time it’s a haven for scam artists who want to take your money. Your complete history and information can be gleaned from a resume. Letting it fall into the wrong hands can spell doom for your future.

Look for a unique company logo and legitimate data regarding a potential employer. Whoever is looking for online employment would do well to investigate the company that you work for, ensuring that it’s legitimate before you send out a resume.

If you don’t have a job, or want to supplement your income as you work, you might want to see if you can identify the person through legitimate government means before you accept a position at their company. Look for companies that provide a bunch of contact information and have a large presence. Investigate whatever possibilities turn up for you. Since it’s so hard to trust people today, you have to be suspicious of every job offer you see online, due to the devastating effect identity theft can have.
